Did I really win something?


2006-09-25 12:24:54 -
I'm concern about these people sending letter,and other notification telling me and perhaps others that we have won a lumps sum of money.Then they wanna ask you to send a check or your bank information for security purpose.#1 How is it possible for those people to my mailing information ;also why are they getting away with it.For at one point in my life i was a victim.Due to the fact that i had believe ;and send my money that i needed . All that happen was they were scamming me out of my money. None of those things as far as me winning anthing was true. So why are these people getting away with such crime.If you ask me they need to be lockup.
