I received plenty of mail stating that I have won millions of dollars. Before I did my research, companies like USSA, LVAAP, CDRA, NBPI, and PSE, received alot of money from me.

The more money I sent, the more letters they sent with even more captivating information about cash prizes. Bottom line is that I never received anything.

There is something really wrong with these sick people! I hope that something can be done about them and fast! Actually, I was about to pay a visit to Las Vegas and find the frauds myself, but I figure theyll get what they deserve. Hopefully more sooner than later.

Watch your backs!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Report LVAAP to the Postal Inspectors for Mail Fraud

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

The only way to shut these people down is to get them for mail fraud. Send a copy of the letter and write out a complaint and send to:

United States Postal Inspection Service
Criminal Investigations Service Center
Attn: Mail Fraud
222 S. Riverside Plaza, Ste. 1250
Chicago, Il. 60606-6100

www.usps.gov/postalinspectors

And for future reference, there is no such thing as free money. You cannot win a sweepstakes that you never entered, and in any legitimate sweepstakes, you never have to pay upfront money to claim winnings.

Write the letter to get these jerks shut down.

Pete, better look at the law again...

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

Pete,

If this was just junk mail promoting a legal sweepstakes, you would be right.

These people are falsly stating that you win a sweepstakes and you have to send $20 to claim your winnings. There are no winnings and the $20 is being taken under false pretenses. That makes it a crime.

And the mail is being used to carry out that fraud.

This makes it a crime, and yes, the Postal Inspector's WILL act on it. They are very aggressive on this sort of thing.

I have dealt with the postal inspectors before. They are Federal Law Enforcement and have very broad authority and jurisdiction.

Much EASIER solution, toss these letters into the trash

AUTHOR: Pete - (U.S.A.)

Just toss these letters into the trash. The postal inspector won't do anything about them. It's perfectly legal to send these 'enticing' offers out. If you're goofy enough to fall for these schemes by sending them money, you deserve to lose it.

Here is what I have found:

The owner of LVAAP is:

Paul Loukedes who has trade named:

103 Currier Ave (P.O. Box 117)
Petersborough, NH 03458
603-540-4943 email paulloukedes@adelphia.net

Mr. Loukedes responded to my email inquiry confirming he owns these businesses. He invites any investigation.

State of New Hampshire Department of State lists this as a trade name to:
Premier Publishers Group, LLC
The registered agent is Paul or Amber Loukedes
103 Currier Ave
Petersborough, NH 03458

Business names operating out of that P.O. Box are:
1: United States of America Patriotism Awards
2: Lapham Vargas and Cornell
3: Prize Search Express
4: Department of Unclaimed Awards
5: National Prize Weekly
6: US Sweepstakes Advisory
7: Directors Office

Las Vegas is a great place to set up a mail drop but it is not what it seems. It appears that if anyone sends money to one business the other will send more sweepstakes material.

The internet shows that several Attorney General investigations are occurring, certainly TV stations have done some investigation as well. The issue at hand is the small print. Historically the Federal Trade Commission has ruled on these issues. If you have a complaint go to the Attorney General. I have forwarded this information to a newspaper to do a story.
