I received a letter in the mail saying that i was put in a computerized random drawing and my name was one of the 32, out of 500, 000, that was picked for a lotto winner. i had never herd of this lotto drawing before.
there was no return address on the envelope that the letter was sent in.
the letter did not have my name on it. it stated:
my prise ammount was $125, 000 u.s. dollars.
the first check of $4975 was enclosed with the letter, and i was to keep the winnings CONFIDENTIAL until the first check was processed and went through.
then i was to send them$2, 975 in the form of a money gram or a money order.
i was not to attempt to cash my check until i had called the claim agent.
DONT FALL FOR IT. IT IS A SCAM ... SCAM... SCAM...
INTERCONTINENTAL JUST WANTS YOU TO PAY THERE TAXES, NOT PAY YOU, TAKE YOUR LETTER TO YOUR LOCAL BANK AND THEY WILL PROVE IT. DO NOT TRY TO CASH THE CHECK, YOU WILL END UP PAYING $5, 000 FOR SOMETHING YOU "WON".
