I recieved a Letter today that was similar to several on this site, it just has a different name on the letter and the check. This particular letter is From TDK Finacial Services claiming that I had been one of the winners in a draw organized for all customers of the major stores in the U.S.A. and canada in conjunction with the North American Sweepstakes Draw. It said my name ws attached to an entry slip with a serial number X and the winning numbers X-X-X-X. Then the letter went on to tell me that I was entitled to the sum of US $250,000.00 payable to me by certified check that would be delivered to me by courier company (FED EX or UPS) and that I was to contact their claims agent: MARY RICHARDS 1-778-861-8566 monday trough saturday 9am to 6pm (pacific standard time), for furthur instructions on how to claim my big winnings. The letter closed by stating that they had enclosed a check of US $4550.00 which was for a payment for the (non-resident) Canadian Tax which was applicable to my winnings, so that I didn't need to put my money up front. and the tax was payable to my tax agent by money gram as stated below: Tina Young
455 Marbury Road
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
a final statement on the letter was as follows: Do not act upon this letter untill you speak with your claims agent for advice on how to claim your winnings.
