I received the same letter as Stacy Gueho. This is most certainly a scam. I have found several websites warning about these people who call themselves the Australian International Lottery Porgram. I contacted the agent in Montreal and what they want you to do is cash the check and send them the money and supposedly, then they'll send you your winnings. If this isn't a scam, I don't know what is. I would like to find out who I should contact to report these people. I have a friend who works in Wachovia, where the check is from and the check has funds. These funds have to be coming from somewhere....

I received a notification by mail that I had won $95000.00 in the Australian International Lottery Program. The mailing included a check for $2850.00, a tax and clearance fee. I am supposed to contact an agent in Montreal Canada. The check look legitimate, but I want to check this out.

I got an e-mail from Laura Clark with the Applause Foundation about her getting money order in US dollars and her being in England she cannot cash them. So if I would do it I would get 10 percent of the money and send the rest to her. I do not need to open a separate account. But I went online and found the Applause Foundation which she said she was with working with HIV/AIds children in foreign countries but the only thing I found was that Applause is training for after school children. Teaching dancing, art, music.., etc.
I recevied this and an application with an address in England. Feb 26, 2006

Someone by name of Michel Moya, as a Foreign Remittance Department. Are sendind emails that you have won a lottery price. There is no way that any person could win the lottery if you have not even play at all, specially out of the Continent USA. This person must be nuts or something else by sending out emails scam to working class people.

SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! My fellow Americans;Friends,Family& Neighbors_WATCH YOUR MAIL AND YOUR E_MAIL CAREULLY THINK PEOPLE!!!YOU NEVER GET ANY THING 4 NOTHING&YOU CAN"T WIN A LOTTO OR SWEEPSTAKES YOU NEVER ENTERED!!!
This is a dangereous game these criminals play.DO NOT send them any money! DO NOT cash in the checks.The checks are counterfiet.I too got one of these letters in the mail.I called the F.B.I.and faxed to them a copy of the BOGUS check and letter that I recieved in the mail.This letter was from the Australian International Lotto. The check was for the amount of $2850.00,and the letter explained that it was to pay for taxes and clearance fee.The letter instructed to cash or deposit the check and then to contact the agent in charge for further processing to get "MY" winnings of $92150.00>Ya Right! GOT SOME LAND FOR SALE-REALLY!!!!! cheap too! This is not you run-of-mill SCAMS,this one is really elaborate,the "CHECK"looks real(water marks and all!)and the "BANKS" are real banks that they are to be collected from,but they are none-the-less very BOGUS!!!! If you get one of these letters in the mail or from your inbox in E_Mail,Please don't act on it,turn it in,throw it away,burn it or "whatever" but DON"T ACT ON THIS! If you DO cash in the check,you WILL have to pay it back and may even do a little jail time,No fun there!The contact phone number in this scam was a cell phone.I was a bit curious so I called,my contact was someone named Francis Carlton( Not "real"name,I'm sure)He asked when did I get my letter?Told him day-before yesterday,he said to contact him as soon as I cashed the check.I had a few Questions-So I asked him-Is this legal?_answer_YES! Q Is this for real?_answer-Yes!_OH BOY! Money from heaven!!!(sorry to inform you scammer,a little bit "NOT SO DUMB!)But you would be supprised how many "NOT-SO-SMART" people are out there.(or maybe you wouldn't)The point that I'm getting to is this.If you wanted to"CRIPPLE" a countries financial back-bone,this would be a good way to do it.If you wanted to launder your "dirty"monies,this would be a good way to do it.This would be a way for "terrorist"to get you to pay for their crimes against you!THINK ABOUT IT! I'm not a "nut",but "what if" (say)1,500000 of these "Letters",{WAKE UP AMERICANS!!!!} made there way into Your State each day for the amount of (Ohh- let's say)$2500.00 each. Now, most smart people will know they where "fakes" and not act on them,BUT "what if"(let's say)a-half of them DID cash them.That's 2,500000 X $2500.00,(THAT"S 62 MILLION,five-hundred thousand dollars.In one day,in one State!!!Now times that amount by fifty States and you get alot of Money being "TAKEN" from "OUR economy in a day"S time. "WOW!!!and what if they were able to do this little trick every day for a numer of years before they were FORCED out of business.That is a-lot,I mean to say "A_LOT"!!!!! of money. As an American citizen(a poor one-at that)I realilize that we just can't have that kind of funds leaving our shores and going over seas.This is a INTERNATIONAL scam,that means alot of countries of various sizes as well as(THE GOOD OLE U.S.A) is victim to this criminal plot to releave you of "your hard "EARNED" money.Now I was raised to believe that if you work hard,saved and lived a decent life,you could have "HAVE the AMERICAN DREAM",but you WORKED 4 it.Unless you're good old Uncle Charley died and left you a few million(NOT Likely)You made your own way in this world.Don't be fooled into losing thousands of your hard earned money.This plot,this Scam,can't work "IF YOU WISE UP" to it.Keep your money in your pocket,in your bank,under your bed Ect.,But DON"T GIVE IT TO THEM!!!!

Thank you;C
Citizen X,Y and ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzz(but NOT aslpeep)
