We are pleased to inform you that you are one of the declared winners of the DE- LOTTO NORTH AMERICAN SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY held on JUNE 20TH, 2008 in the 2nd category.

We have made many unsuccessful attempts to contact you regarding this winning. You are therefore entitled to the sum of $125, 000.00 US dollars. This is from total prize money of $4 Million US dollars that was shared and presented among the other 32 declared winners. Please note that all the participants were selected through a random computer ballot system drawn from over 500, 000 names.

In accordance with our disbursement policy your prize award money has been forwarded to our Clearning / disbursement institution to release your funds to you.
Your claim number if KT/PA-785CA and has been assigned to our North American Claims Affiliate. To expedite the processing, enclosed is the check of $4875 US dollars which has been deducted from your winning. The sole purpose of this FIRST CHECK is for the payment of applicable GOVERNMENT TAXES on your big winnings. Government taxes cannot be deducted from the winning amount because of the insurance bond policy coverage.
The tax amount is $2, 875 (TWO THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND SEVENTYFIVE DOLLARS) to be paid either by WESTERN UNION OR MONEYGRAM directly to the tax agent.

Please do not attempt to use this check until you call. We urge you to keep this winning CONFIDENTIAL until your claim has been processed and your cash remitted to you as this is part our security protocol to avoid double claiming or unscrupulous acts by non participants taking advantage of this program. You are advised to contact your claim agent immediately for further clarification as indicated below within 10 business day.
