What?  Anyone ever hear of the American Sweepstakes Publishers, PO Box 29171, Shawnee Mission, Ks 66201 ? I received a very official letter from them telling me that they have identified an unclaimed sum of 1,254,204.00 dollars that is now guarantee to me. and now that I have been identified, confirmed and notified all I have to do is send them a $12 processing fee and the document which they enclosed I will receive said money. I checked them out on one of the Scam pages and found similar names but not this one.

What's funny is that I also received notice from a known fraudulent company, International Award Payment Center, telling me that I have won 15,000 dollars all I had to send them was a $9 processing fee.

For the paltry sum of $21 I could take home  $1,254,219.00 Party

Time is a wonderful teacher, but it kills all its students.

A man must consider what a rich realm he leaves when he becomes a conformist.

    Now just think if they sent the same letter to 10,000 people and they all sent in their $21.00 this so called company would be sitting pretty, don't you think.

    Now, if you're still not convinced, send the $21.00 to me and you won't hear from me again...!

      I've seen videos on youtube where they hand deliver checks to people at their homes.

        I got a phone call telling me I "won" a luxury car.

        All they required was my bank account information, password, mother's maiden name and social security number to make sure it was "really me" so I could have the car delivered.

        I am one lucky guy.

        That $12 processing fee for your $1,254,204.00 doesn't sound bad at all. Just tell them you're so happy you want to pay them ten times that amount and to just go ahead and take it out of your winnings.

          You'd have a better chance of getting some money by throwing down your $12 on red next time you're in a casino.

          In this day and age, does anyone still believe they'll get anything from a person or company that requires an up-front fee?  It's so weird.  Doesn't everyone understand at this point that any fees owed could simply be deducted from the "$1,254,204.00" the company supposedly already has on-hand?
