I received a letter in the mail from RBC Financial Inc.  I called the number to speak with my "Agent" Nick Alba or Jimmy Harris only to have a man answer that speaks broken English and was obviously sitting in his living room with his children playing video games behind him. Of course, the only way to get your "winnings" is to deposit the check they send you and wire them $2,800 to cover the "taxes" on your winnings. THIS IS A FRAUD, DO NOT FALL FOR IT!!!  

The letter reads like this:   

RBC Financial Inc.
4012 ROYAL LN,
NIAGRA FALLS, ON L3N1H3      Consumer Lottery
