Hi


2006-08-27 12:52:48 -
I received a check for $4975.00 asking me to pay the taxes from that check for $2800.00 on a $250,000.00 sweepstakes winning.

First of all IRS would get a whole lot more than $2800.00 on $250,000.00 so right away I knew it was a scam.

Looked it up on the Internet and sure enough it was.
Well my dream vacation to Austrailia just went up in smoke.

Contacting the police, newspaper, my bank and the IRS.

I received a letter stating that I am a winner in the North-American/European Sweepstakes Lottery held on December 30th, 2005 in the 2nd category.

They said that participants were selected through a random computer ballot system.

Enclosed is a check for $4,975.00. It says do not attempt to cash this check until I call and speak with the claim agent Ms. Stacy Clarke at 1-705-770-0376 for instructions on claiming my big winning.
