Capital Direct Lottery Sweepstakes

I was informed by letter on April 19, 2013 that I was a winner of USA Lottery Sweepstakes Million Dollar Drawing. Entry 09-ULSD-9879 was attached to my name and drew the lucky number 01-07-55-45-77 and as a result matched the first 5(5)numbers winning US $250,0000.00. Capital Direct Lottery Sweepstakes has been contracted by the Multi-State Lottery Aassociation.

Enclosed with the letter was a check in the sum of $3,962.96 payable to me provided to help pay taxes, Insurance, Handling and Shipping fees. (At the bottom of the check it stated that two signatures were required over 350,000. Only one signature appeared thereon. The tax amount is $3,000.00.

The Capital Direct Lottery Sweepstakes representative in my area would deliver the $246,848.14 check directly to my door after I completed the claim. The agent’s name is RAY WILLIAMS, Claims Manager, 1-778-714-0801. For security purpose PIN#1009/DRT/USA was assigned to identify me and to quote it every time I call CAPITAL DIRECT LOTTERY SWEEPSTAKES. I HAVE NOT CONTACTED THE AGENT BECAUSE THIS DOES NOT SEEM LEGITIMATE?

THE SWEEPSTAKES AUDIT BUREAU

scamFRAUDalert see it appropriate to issue this ALERT as this scamalertoutfit are contacting member of the general public via bulk mail and email informing them of $12,000,000 winnings.

They then asked the recipient to send western union or wire fund in the amount of $5 $20 for processing fees.

scamFRAUDalert see it necessary to issue this ALERT as this is just anoscamalertther of the these BestBuy texting scam in circulation.

I receive a call first thing this morning (Christmas Eve no less!) stating, “Your entry has won! Go to winbigbb.com/?v522 and enter code 1122 to claim your $1000 Best Buy gift card!” I skeptically entered the URL into Google and all of these scam and fraud alerts showed up. I also saw tha they ar easking for your first and last name, email address, and your cell phone number. That is a lot of personal information that a scamster or hacker can use against you. I never entered a best buy contest so it is obviously a scam. You don’t get something for nothing people
