I received a "legal" looking document indicating that a prize of "up to" $1,750,233.99 would be awarded to me upon receipt of $20.00 cash, check or money order. I am supposed to respond within 10 days but nowhere on the letter is a postmark, or canceled stamp. This type of business should be shut down. Too many naive people could possibly fall for this, especially in the financial crunch these days. PLEASE get these shysters shut down.

I was offered the exact same prize amount as Hanna Wardell and sent numerous notifications that I had been declared the awardee of these large amounts of cash.It also asked for $30 to be sent within 10 days or you may "miss out". This may prompt people to act before they think.
The document was written with what the scammers probably thought was intelligent legal jargon but anyone could see that it was written by a low-life fraudster. It even had fake stamps "GRANTED" on it.
However there are vulnerable people out there who may not see past this attempt to relieve them of their money and details.
I will be posting mine to the relevant department to deal with these parasites.
