I received a letter with an enclosed check for the amount of $4,875.00. The letter stated that I had been a winner of DE-LOTTO American Shoppers Lottery held in 4/3/09. So therefore entitled me to the sum of $125000.00 US dollars. This was from a total prize of $9 Million US dollars that was shared and presented among the other 72 winners. It stated that we were selected through a random computer ballot system drawn from over 500,000 names. The purpose of the first check is for the payment of applicable government taxes. The tax amount is $2,875.00 to be paid either by western union or moneygram directly to the tax agent. It also said not to attempt to use this check until I called. I was advised to contact my claim agent immediately for further clarificaton. I also only had 10 business days to contact them. I had to call and ask for a man called John Martins 416-857-9389 from 9am-6pm(est) Mon-Fri and Sat 10am-4pm (est). And it was signed by John Martins(promotion Manager).

I showed the letter to my husband and he said well it looks real. So I called this morning and they told me I had won. And I had to go to the bank an deposit the check. Call him back after I was done for futher instructions. I asked him how did I win. He asked me if I shopped at Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Target. I told him I did and so he said it was threw there ballots. And he told me just go and deposit the check and call me once you do that. Now the way he talked to me I didnt like that. His tone was very pushy and so I decided to reseach before I did anything. And Thank God I did, if not I would have been so screwed. I'am not working we are only living out of my husband's income. So if they would have taken money out of our account we would have been in bad shape.

I just really hope the other 71 so call winners. Do there research before doing anything they say. I'm so happy that I did and I thank God for that. I really hope they find these people and get what they deserve.

Thank you
