I received a letter in the mail indicating I was one of the declared winners of the Lotto North American Sweepstakes Lottery in the amount of $125, 000. The letter provided a claim number, YKS/TFH-0321 and included a check in the amount of $4, 875. The letter indicates the purpose of this first check is for the payment of applicable government taxes in the amount of $2, 875 to be paid either by Western Union or MoneyGram directly to the tax agent.
The letter urges me to keep this winning confidential until my claim has been processed and my cash remitted as a security protocol.
The agent listed on the letter is Mr. Jeffrey Stephens
