I'm writing this because I saw the complaint of another person who received the same letter my husband did. It states that he has won 2nd prize in the AFRO-EURO/USA Mega Sweepstakes in the amount of $250,000. A check is enclosed for $4,850 "to help you pay for the processing fee" which is $4,100.

I know this is a scam but want others to know it is so they will not be ripped off. What's weird, though, is that the check enclosed seems to be from a legitimate company, Oliver Sprinkler Co., Inc., 501 Feheley Drive, King of Prussia, PA 19406-2690. I wonder if they are a victim of the scam, or are they also involved in it? 

The letter apparently was sent from South Africa, because on the stamp are the words "South Africa International Small Letter".

The recipient of the letter is advised to contact David Williams @ 1-877-855-1760 or @ 1-315-939-8244 "to start your claim processing and to activate your check". I did not contact him because I know this has to be a scam and I don't want him to get my phone number by caller ID. I started to call Oliver Sprinkler Co., but in case they are involved in the scam thought it was better not to contact them. After doing more research on the internet, found the Ripoff Report website and decided to send this report. Hope it will be helpful to others who receive this letter.

AUTHOR: Bama consumer lawyer - (United States of America)

Many similar letters must have been sent out by "Germ Financial Incorporated" at the same time.  My clients brought by an identical letter, complete with the South African "International Small Letter" stamp.  Their check was only for $3450.00, from MGL (USA) Inc. of Diamond Bar, CA.  The enclosed letter asks them to call David Akuwadik at 315-939-8244 to "claim their prize."  An absolute scam but no way to run these people down and bring them to account.  All we can do is spread the word and hope nobody get taken in.
