I thought I had won over $2,962.00 just to find out I would have to send it back to pay for a larger amout they said I had won.

I went to the original WinForMe and here is what it had:

WinForMe never sends out notifications of prize wins. If you receive a letter claiming to be from WinForMe and announcing a lottery win or a large cash prize, this is a not a legitimate win

Has anyone else on LP received a letter like this? The letter i got was from Toronto, Canada

    Neat trick: You won a lottery you never bought a ticket for.

    A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

      Scams !  C'mon wheeler, if you don't buy a ticket in any particular lottery, how can  you believe you have won anything?

      Money really doesn't fall from trees.

      How can you tell if a politician is lying?

        i agree with you Badger. Money doesnt fall from trees. Besides the check I got is a processing fee. A $2,962 fee.

          Sadly, there are enough people out there that are not mentally sharp enough so that they will be caught in these sorts of scams.

          There is likely no punishment hard enough for the s***bags that perpetrate these sort of things. (even boiling them alive in oil wouldn't be enough)

          Even more sadly, it appears these sort of people never get caught.
