Received a letter today showing a claim number GF-647-513-CA. saying I had won a second prize in a drawing, I didn't know I had even entered.  Serial # is 2923534  They enclosed what looks like a check in the amount of $4685.00 supposedly to cover the processing fee of $3950.00 I needed to send, after speaking with the claim agent $Mark Benson@011-34-603-220-500.  Anytime someone asks for a processing fee, the red flags go up, and I balk.    That has scam written all over it!  The business name on the check "look alike" is Footmaxx of Virginia,Inc.  P.O.Box 12611 Roanoke, VA 24027-2611  The Bank name shown on the check is Wachovia  201 second Floor  Roanoke, VA  24011-1706  Check # 13948   The # to deposit it is 68-54/514   The routing and acct #  013948  051400549   2000055569109  I doubt there is any such account     The instructions are to contact Mark Benson, to avoid any cases of misappropriation and mishandling of winnings.    Below that was "We are very Pleased and excited for you.     Then the typed Name, Paul Morgan    Promotion Manager,

From my checking, it seems the phone number is in Spain      There is a notation at the bottom of the letter, saying to sign and detach that to give to their representative after I receive the rest of my $255,000.00 check.  I have seen any number of such Scam reports on the Internet, the amounts are not the same as mine, nor is the Claim Manager Mark Benson, nor the phone number.
