Suspicious check received in the mail for 4, 975.00 dollars. No return address on envelope

I received an envelope in the mail, that looked suspicious to start with, because it had no return address on it. I opened it up and there was a very legitimate looking check inside, for 4, 975.00 dollars. The note inside said I had won $250, 000.00 dollars in a shoppers sweepstakes.

I have no knowledge of entering any such sweepstakes. Where they got my name and address, I have no idea. It gave the phone # of 1-416-879-7046. It said to call before doing anything with the check.

The check was drawn on U.S. bank of Havre, Montana. It had the name George Andrerson on the note as the claim agent, and Brenda Hicks as promotion Manager. It said that the check was for the taxes on the money I had won, or 2, 995.00 dollars of it was.

It said this amount needed to be paid by Moneygram, or Western Union. The claim was assigned to "their North American Claims affiliate". The note gave a claim #.

I did not call the number, but came straight to the computer and found someone else had received this check also. What kind of scam is this? Has anyone checked into this? The check was signed by a Robert A. Whalf
