I got a letter telling me that I had won $68, 000 in a North American Shoppers Sweepstakes. There was a real looking check for $4, 985.00. I did not deposit the check as I was suspicious of it. The number on the letter 1-306-880-5196 is only answered by a machine.
Good thing I checked on internet and found the exact same scam lisited here. US Govt should extradite these scammers and prosecute them. I knew of the Nigerian Scam but getting a letter and a check from Canada is just ridiculous. I will warn all my friends and relatives about this.
If only we could use their own scam somehow to scam them in turn :-) That would be fun.
