I didn't fall for it, but some people may. "Be advised that the prize total of $2,536.23 has been identified as now due for payment. These funds are offered by third party sponsors not affiliated with the Financial Acquisition Agency, an independent notification service."
"You have been selected, with my name, and Account No. xxxx has been established in your name, to facilitate transfer to you of complete accounting of prize funds now due. Please make reference to this account number in all correspondence with Financial Acquisition Agency."
Then it asks four different questions. And then it says ... "By my signature below, I certify all answers are true. My transfer fee of $20 is enclosed in Cash, Check or Money Order, payable to 'FAA.' Please rush my cash prize account to me by bonded federal carrier."
The "official envelope" in which you are to send information back to is going to PROCESSING CENTER, PO BOX 527800, MIAMI, FL 33152-9962.
Just thought you might want to look into this. Thank you.

  • I was told I had won a prize of $2,536,092.23, but I was to send them $20.00, for transfer fee. I was sure this was a scam so I got on line to check them out.And I was right, it is a scam. So it is going in file 13.
