I was sent a letter stating I had won a mega sweepstakes. How happy I was to read this and see a check that looked real for 4975.00. Feeling excitement about also winning 245, 025.00 more after I paid the taxes to the agent.
I phoned my sister who told me about this scam she just saw on the news a few days ago. I didn't want to believe her, so I searched it out myself. Well she was right......They asked me to call a number to get clarification before I could cash my check. How frustrating it was to learn that it wasn't true.
I am a single mom with 2 boys and for a moment thought I could pay for my
son's entire college education, payoff my debt and payoff my house. This should not be allowed, but thanks to the news and my sister I almost fell for it.
