Most other people apparently got a letter from the same company except the grand prize was one million dollars, mine was two. The only type of verification you can find of this company is scam reports. They're not BBB accredited or even BBB reported. Plus the address doesn't exist in the yellow pages. As well, they don't even have an official site to visit and can be contacted by mail only. Also your name is "submitted" to another company for various offers you might be interested in with no specific details except another mailing address. Plus since when do sweepstakes say "no purchase necessary" and then go on to state that your order is REQUIRED for delivery. On top of that, the main prize number is already picked and will not be awarded if the "lucky" person with that number doesn't submit it. You can't have a grand prize drawing if the number is already picked. Then what's the point of a contest? I chucked my letter in the garbage, if it's real, they'll try again and someone somewhere should be able to find something legit on them. Until then, d**n, wish it was real. The letter I received is as follows:

(Your Name), your response within (10 days) is requested to resove this matter and MUST be executed by mail. There is no alternate means to validate your entry record. (Once determination of the WINNER is formally made in accordance with the official rules and declared, the payment process will begin!)
The fine print goes on to tell how your name and info is shared to one company in particular, Next-Gen Inc., who is then allowed to share it with anyone. They have a do not mail address, but I doubt that matters. Plus just on a finer note, how can a prize awarding place located in the U.S.A. not be Better Business Bureau accredited or even noted? Especially since they have almost everyone, charities included.
