    I've gotten the same thing in the mail. It's about magazines; just disregard it.

      Be careful to read the fine print.  It probably says something like:

      You could be receiving a message that YOU WON THE GRAND PRIZE!

      The bottom line is that if you didn't enter a sweepstakes, you didn't win anything.

          All of these "jackpots" want your banking numbers so they can wire the prize to your account, but really to empty it. 

          Or they want you to send money to cover taxes or fees so they can sent the full amount (printed on the form/check, etc.) and send nothing. 

          Or they will send you a certified check to deposit and you're to send or wire back the taxes/fees, then the bank finds the check was bogus after first saying it was good and you're libel for the loss.

          Or any combination of the three or whatever the latest variation this week is.

          The toll free number bit is often to another country where they try to keep you on line as long as possible, then you get billed big for the call despite what they said and are libel for the bill.

          I have no valid reason to say the following, but sites like WorldWideLotto where you can enter a million dollar lotto free with nothing ventured but your email address are harvesting it for something, wonder what it is?  BobP
