I received a brown envelope postmarked from canada,stating i had won $68,000.00 from North American Shoppers Sweepstakes. They said I was selected through a ballot system drawn from over 500,000 shoppers. They said our firm has secured for the percentage surcharge to be paid as commission on your winning prize to the lotto regulatory board, saving you trouble they sent a check for $4,985.00 to be paid on charges, fees, and taxes prior to receiving your winnings. After calling the number given in the letter, a woman answered and reassured me the check was good and to take it to the bank and deposit it and call her back to let her know how long the bank was going to hold the check. When i got off the phone with her, I went to the bank and was told the check was fake. Luckily i had heard about a similar scam and was skeptical of depositing it into my account and I am so glad I didnt because i have found out that some people around me have been scammed by this same company and they have suffered tremendousely. Please tell all your friends and family so this doesnt happen to you or someone you know.
