Yesterday I received a letter in the mail (no post mark , just a stamp with a yellow flower and "canada" ). This letter contained a check for $5,190.00. Normally I would just throw it in the trash , but it is has all of the security marks in place and looks ligit. It says that after numerous attempts to contact me by phone had failed( these kinds of people are why I don't answer my phone ! ). They sent me a letter instead dated August 15th. The letter states that I have won $675,000.00 USD. States that all participent's were selected through a computer ballot system drawn from Readers Digest , mail in ballot forms , internet submissions , Publishers Clearing House,computer games sweepstakes database which are from USA and canada. It further reads that prize money must be claimed by Sept. 1st 2008. That I must call my North American Claims Agent ( Mr. William Bryer at 1-888-524-1187 ext.1 ) for further instructions before depositing into my account. I have researched online and the company this check is drawn on and the bank are legitimate places of buisness. Although when I called the bank they were not helpfull at all. This letter sounds to be the same as the others here have received. Names and phone numbers are different , but definitly the same scam.
