On Friday, Febuary 27th 2009 I got a fraudulant check in the mail for $5,935.00 from Canada. It said that I had won the 2nd Grand Prize in the Reader's Digest Drawing. The prize was supposedly 1 million dollars.

The check had the name Sharon Mills at 1-888-317-4154 on it. When i called her I was told that an IRS agent had my million. I was supposed to put the $5,935 in my account and send back $3,800. The $3,800 was for fees to come deliver the 1 million.

It sounded immensly real to me and I was planning on going through with it until i read all of the complaints on this website. I've seen others with the same check, who thought they won the same prize, and the same fake information was given to them. It's a scam!!! I got scammed!

It's depressing, really, that they get people's hopes up and then try to scam you out of all the money you own!!
