    I received the same letter in the mail today with no return address on envelope. The check enclosed was for $4,690.80 to help pay for taxes.

  3. Debbie says:

    My dad received this letter and a check on an actual legit business check. I e-mailed the company that the check is drawn on so they are aware of their name being involved in the scam.

    rosy I received the same check and spoke with ‘claims manager’ who advised me to deposit the check & call him back. I’m grateful for this website.as I never play ‘get rich schemes’.

    I too, received a letter with no return address. It was a check from Primerica Life Insurance for America Mega Million Lottery Sweepstakes. I kind of get the feeling it may have to do with another fraudulent internet company I pissed off. This online weight loss fitness company took my money before I “confirmed” with my credit card. There was a 60 day money back gaurantee from the start. I tried to get my money back as I didn’t want it to begin with. Since there was no phone number, they ignored most of my emails. They finally sent me a phony email saying ClickBank in Idaho would refund my money, which never did. I kept bugging them saying this is fraud and suddenly I am pounded with all of these calls from Jamacia saying I won 600,000 and then get this scam with a check for $4,960 from the Mega company. That online company was called: Venus Index Systems. No idea if there is any correlation but sure seemed like interesting timing for me to get all of this scamming. Also, many of these scams have the numbers 9 and 6 in them somewhere. Not sure why.

    My mother received a letter with no return address. At her request, I opened the envelopment to read the correspondence from “America Mega Million Lottery Sweepstakes” stating that “…You have therefore won $350,000.00.”

    Also, enclosed was a check with the name Progressive Insurance and PNC Bank from Indianapolis for $4,660.00 that was dated June 25, 2014. The explanation for the check is to pay taxes, insurance, handling and shipping fees.

    In addition, the letter states, “It remains in your best interest to claim this money prize”…with instructions to call the claims manager Josh Parker at 1-647-707-8087. Full of skepticism, I went on-line to check to determine if PNC Banks exist, and they do.

    However, when I initiated a search for America Mega Millions, I saw several sites stating that this so called company is a SCAM! I do not understand how such deceitful scam artists are not apprehended and sentenced to prison for stealing from unsuspecting American people, especially the elderly. My mother is blessed that she avoided becoming another victim!
    Thanks for allowing people to post on this site.

    I too received a letter from American Mega Lottery along with a check in the amount of 3,950.00 drawn on Progressive Casualty Insurance Company, 5975 Castle Creek, Parkway, Indiana, 46250-4340. I am well aware of these scam artists, so did not respond.

  9. Wm Osburn says:

    I got a “legit” check from US Bank, Atlanta, GA to help cover costs. I went to a US Bank location and they checked the account. It was bogus! The check itself was drawn on US Bank check paper with legit watermarks and other security features. I ran a search on the company and there was no info for that company at that address provided so I suspected a scam.

    DO NOT fall for this scam! Report it to the bank or Federal Trade Commission. We have mail fraud and bank fraud here for starters, not to mention the scam itself. I left the info with US Bank so they could go after the scammer. These people need to go to jail! Scum of the earth to prey on people like that.

Says to call Kathleen Martin at 437-213-6420 as Claim Representative. Why aren’t these people in jail for 20+ years? Probably were but the Democrats let them out…..
