I received a letter in the U.S. mail with an ING Direct logo at the top and a Toronto, Ontario, Canada address advising me I'd won $450,000.00 in the second category of Sweepstake and Lottery Draw held on October 1st, 2008. They gave me a ticket/serial number and enclosed a CHECK for $4,950.00 from Theo B. Camisole and Company, 24 Bayview St. Camden, ME.

They gave an assigned claim agent's name and phone number to contact which was Mikel Hamilton or Debbie Jones at Tel: 1-778-323-1900. I called the number and a woman answered "ING Direct" and when I asked questions such as her address, she would not give it to me until I told her who I was, which I did not.

The tax agent's name on the letter is Phyllis Drucker, 4860 NE 76th Ave. E, Windsor, Ontario, Canada. They want me to pay taxes "before winnings can be legally released." (Ha!) The check enclosed is to help me pay those taxes due!

After an Internet search, I discovered that Theo B. Camisole and Company is a lingerie and formal wear boutique. I'll probably take the check to my bank to report it.

This is a very authentic looking letter and CHECK and unless a person is CONSIDERABLY knowledgeable or suspicious of this kind of stuff, could be fooled very EASILY!

Does anyone have any additional info on this scam and how to bring these people to justice?
