I received a Winning Final Notification from Swiss Financial Securitis Inc.
Basically, it says that they have made many unsuccessful attempts contacting me regarding this winning. They tell me that I am entitled to the sum of $250, 000.00 US Dollars and that all the participants were selected through a random computer ballot ssystem drawn from over 50, 000 names.
My claim # is WN/UL-0055 and has been assigned to their North American Claims Affiliate. The letter also says that in order to expedite the processing, they have enclosed a check in the amount of $4, 998.00 US Dollars, which has been deducted from my winnings and that the sole purpose of the check is for the payment of applicable Government Taxes on my big winnings.
The check looks authentic and the bank listed is Suntrust Bank, which can be found on the internet.
The letter also mentions that the tax amount is $2995.00 US Dollars to be paid by either MoneyGram or Western Union and that when the winning is processed, I will receive my final check, a lump sum payment of $245, 002.00 US Dollars, by Fed Ex.
The last paragraph does mention not to attempt to use the check until I make a phone call to my claim agent for further clarification within 5 business days.
My claim agent is listed as Kelly Anderson, 1-905-783-1975 and the letter is signed by Mary Brown (Promotion Manager)
