A letter was recieved stating that this is to inform you of the official release of the 2006 North American Sweepstakes Lottery held on December 6 2006 in the 2nd category. The letter goes on to give ticket numbers and serial numbers. It states that I am entitled to $550, 000. A check is enclosed for $4950.00 and all that is needed is to send the tax amount of $2950 by Western Union or Moneygram. The check is watermarked and stamped with official signatures, however the address on the check is for the Lutheran Social Services of New York. I called the Social Services in New York and informed them of this check, and they of course said it was a fraudulent check. The check along with everything I received is being sent to the Lutheran Social Services of New York to be investigated.
The man listed as a contact for the prize is Doug Smith and lists the phone number of 647-868-9046. The person who signs the letter is Tim Michael
