We received a letter today that we have won $615,810 USD. There was no return address on the letter. The letter itself did not have any of our names on it. The letter accompanied a Payment Processing Form asking for our personal information. It was dated for Sept 15, 2004 and asked to redeem the amount by Oct 15, 2004. oh it also said " Due to mix up of some numbers and names, we ask you to keep this award from public notice until your claim has been processed..."

Anyways, our ticket number, lucky number and serial number matched with other reports submiited on this site. I'm just glad that I searched this company before believing it. Thanks to everyone for putting the word out. I wanted to do my share as well by writting this.

Hancock, Michigan
