National Awards Commission Weasels Try To Separate Me From My Money

The latest sleazy sweepstakes offer to arrive at my home via U.S. Mail is from an outfit calling themselves ‘National Awards Commission.’ They list a return address of P.O. Box 219800, Kansas City, MO 64121-9800.

As you can see their deception starts with their name, as they are obviously using a name like that to make potential customers think they are an organization that awards prizes.

There is a generous helping of nonsense printed on the envelope, such as: ‘SENSITIVE MAIL’ and ‘DO NOT OBSTRUCT DELIVERY,’ which I must admit, made me laugh out loud. Like postal employees are going to find some reason to prevent their garbage from landing in my mailbox (sounds like a good idea, actually)!

national awards commission envelopeIt’s kind of like handing a kid a candy bar with ‘PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU EAT THIS’ printed on the wrapper. I suppose they expect it to make it look a bit more ‘official’ or something.

Although they do their best to create the impression that you have already won something, the real story is that they are just trying to extract $11.89 from you. This amount, as far as I can tell, is for a ‘valuable dollar-saving, dollar-stretching Premium Booklet filled with over $2,500.00 in personal discount certificates.’ In other words, a coupon book of some sort.

national awards commission letterI don’t know who they hire to come up with crap like this, but this is essentially a one-page letter with lots of exciting-sounding language which all boils down to: ‘Please buy our coupon book for $11.89 and we’ll enter you in this nifty sweepstakes. And, by the way, you don’t have to buy it to enter.” And of course, the part where they tell you that you don’t actually have to spend the $11.89 to enter the contest is at the bottom of the page.

It’s one thing to send out a direct mail piece and try to sell something. I get that stuff all the time trying to sell me magazine subscriptions, or cheesy power tools or memberships to garden clubs or whatever. And that’s just fine with me. Most of the sales pitches are pretty standard and they make a point of highlighting all the benefits of their product or service without trying to deceive.

national awards commission formThese sleazy offers from outfits like ‘National Awards Commission’ or ‘National Magazine Exchange’ are another matter altogether. The stuff they send out is clearly intended to deceive and that’s pretty sad. I guess the crap they are selling is so worthless that they are unable to come up with a sales pitch convincing enough to snare a sufficient number of buyers.

There is one place I can think of where these deceptive mailing pieces belong and that is in the trash.

I just got the very same letter today.
It’s pretty lame the very fact that they tell you you won something and at the same time say you have to pay for it.
To me this whole thing is getting ridiculous, really…

I also just received that same letter today here in Hawaii. Of course, there is no contact phone number and no email or website info……. Watch out for scams that insist a fee to enter in winning any price ….. especially $1 million dollars. This company should be reported and investigated. It’s sad that some people have no feelings of others who are honest citizens.

I also got the same letter yesterday and I dont know why these people play like this to rip money off poor people by advertizing such bull shit.It also say a purchase doesnt improve the chances of winning so why send the $11.99?? its so crazy…..

It wouldn’t be so bad if they would just be honest about the fact that they are trying to sell a coupon book (or whatever it is).

It’s the attempt at deception that bothers me. There is no doubt about the fact that they are trying to make people believe they have won something when they first lay eyes on that envelope.

I guess they’ll do whatever they can get away with to clear that first hurdle, which is getting the consumer to open that envelope.

I just received this piece of mail and the first thing that caught my eye was
Kansas City, Missouri. Where is Kansas City located?

This made me look up this site. Thanks for the info. Of course this letter was
on its way to the trash when they asked me for some money.

i just got this letter in the mail too…and guys be careful of this stuff…there is also another letter landing in peoples mail from a company called monatary locators tell u that they have unclaimed money for u and have been tryin to get in contact with u..they enclose a check for u to cash and deposit to cover ur processing fee the check is for 2,900 dollars they then ask for u to wire them 2,400 of it and they will send u ur 194,000.00 in unclaimed money…call the authorities as soon as u get something like this…if u are niave like i was u would go along with it only to get a call from ur bank telling u that the money u withdrew out of ur account that came from a FAKE check that appeared and was even deceptive enough to fool the bank even..and now ur left to pay it back. these people are heartless…please dont be like me..i cant believe that they are tryin to scam me again..

I too received the same letter head and contents, addressed to my
husband of 54 years who died nine months ago. and it was very unnerving to see the
to read the words Sehsitive Mail do not obstruct delivery….I am still
in charge of his estate including such evil deeds as this.
In reading the official Rules/terms & conditions -(used my magnifier)
and I quote: “the purpose of this sweepstakes is to promote the
various products featured by sponsor: WESTPORT ENTERPRISES, INC.
P.O. Box 364, Lee’s Summit, MO. 64063″ end of quote…
. What a shame to have such dishonesty; I wonder how they would
react to a similar letter after the death of someone they love…??

Comment from Admin
Posted: December 2, 2006 at 11:18 pm

Well, I guess one thing we can do is just be aware of these kinds of things and not allow ourselves to be taken advantage of.

That’s why I put this information in here — hoping that people would find it and not be taken in by it.

I am not a lawyer, but I suspect that outfits like this are pretty careful about staying on the legal side of things when they send this stuff out. Since they are probably not breaking any laws by sending this stuff out, there probably isn’t too much that can be done about it.

I am in Cheshire England and I have recieved my notification of my win of ??5000 pounds sterling this morning. I will get the award if I send all my credit card details and send them ??9.86! I cannot believe that they are now targeting Britain once they realised that you Americans are too cute on to fall for such an obvious scam. Well National Awards Commission we Brits aren’t that daft either. Thanks to all the American scam warners for their advice.

After reading all the comments about this company, or a group of bullshitters, I realized that all of this is just a fake. It only took a second for me to trash it.
This company has no phone number, no physical address, anybody can get a PO Box. Please don’t fall for this bull shit.

Ya I fell for it too and I live in Canada..and I too sent the requested amount..only to think about UM why do you have to send money to win money..and why I am sitting here just now checking it out on the web because yet again I have received yet two morw notices form them today ..notice 1 says act not ..notice 2 actually has the words second notice..well this is annoying because they will probably keep sneding even though they mentioned my winning spot would be moved to abandoned YAY!But will it??UM? I really feel dumb having fallen for it at all..we have so many contests saying that we are close to winning! Yikes WHEN’ CB

Hi Everyone,

Like all of you, I was cheated, I paid 3 times the $11.89 and I’m still waiting for my Millions that were promised.
I’m Sorry that I did not find & read your website before, But what we can do now?

Watch yourself, Miriam

We live in the North of England and have had my mother in law stay with us over Christmas. When we took her home we could not open the door for the volume of mail from these people..We had a hard time trying to convice her that this is a scam. We were incensed to find out she had been mailing them for two years sending three envelopes each time containing ??9.98. I contacted trading standards who are daling with it.
I also approached the post office who are aware of these scams and try to warn individuals as they send their mail. It is so frustrating to be told that people who believe these scams are consenting adults and it is after all their money to do with as they wish. Thankfully I found this site in time to put a stop to it.

MMM…I guess I got trapped in this scam as well. So there really is no award’ I realy have been using my time and postage to fill out these for a scam. I have to admit I sent the 11.89 for the coupon book just once. I am very angry and worried. Should I be worried about my check for 11.89 that I sent. (my bank account information)
Why would someone do this? Not that I thought I would win the million dollars, but I guess it wasn’t even worth it to dream’ Some DREAM OF A LIFE SWEEPSTAKES, HUH?

Well my letter is a little different.. they ask for “your procurement of the MERCHANDISE ACQUISITION OFFER (referred to hereafter as MAO) : The good luck wishbone pendant” The MOA acquisition fee is $29.99!!!! I received this letter at my work address … The only other mail addressed to me at this location has been coming from a Psycic Maria Duval who has been telling me for months I will be winning the lottery or some other game of chance and that I need her services to make sure I win. Guess what? most of her rituals or talismens are discounted to the price of $29.99. The presorted mail stamps on her letters look exactly the same as the stamps on this letter and the lingo / writing style is the same. Now today I got 2 more 1 from National Awards Advisory Center – 9002,Levittown,NY 11756 I need to send them $19.99 Report fee and 1 from H.P.R Receiver services Huntington Prize reports P.O.Box 9004 Westbury , NY 11590-9004 they also want $19.99 I can’t wait for the next one … I’m starting to find this all very entertaining – ofcorse that ‘s because I have’nt sent any $$$ I’m sure I’d feel different if i had.

in the past, we got a similar letter from a national lottary company in spain stating that we worn 700000, that we are the chosen winner from ireland, we called the company, they told us to send our bank details and id by fax, then they told us to send 1000euro for clearing the money and tax then we told them to deduct it from our price they said no. we informed the bank and they canceled our account and told us they are scammers.
we told them we reported them that we are calling up to their office in spain we didn’t get them on phone anymore. i gues they were scared

Hi all im from new zealand and have been getting these letters for a long time now, but have never sent them money after watching a show on tv about it. was reading Naomi’s letter she said her’s was signed by a PAUL BISHOP Prize Officer. My letter has the same address but is signed by J.Winston Fulbrite, Senior Prize Director.

I had also sent them 11.98 last month and got another one today saying please don’t delay and send again 11.98 to be sure your money will come to you.
I am glad I didn’t send any money right now today as I was wanting to check it out.
Yes, I got the same person Paul Bishop and too J Winston Fulbrite. that is really something that this is going on?

So, if we’ll think with a little bit logyc, somebody asking for $11.89 shouldn’t write NO PAYMENT in RULES.

Id like to add a remark though, I also checked the intranet for more info about SARA FREDER ( also a fraud who is said to be the same person as MARIA DUVAL . These two persons claim that they are fortune tellers and if you send them money, they will bring positive energy to you and so on. I also found out that Maria Duval is said to have several connections with fraudulous companies . She gives them the names of her clients and then the companies know that if these people believe in her,they are naive and they will also be an easy victim for them.

Did anybody ever receive a letter from one of these ladies’

I did and i responded to this letter,gave her my name but never paid one penny and now i receive this letter from national award company.

I’m really angry and also sorry for people who believe in this kind of things.

That is when I came across this page and got the chance to read other peoples inputs.
So , I would just like to thank people like you that investigate this type of fraud going on .
Thank-you again.

A friend of mine sent a request for information to “Maria Duval”, actually the Astroforce company in the Netherlands. He deviously included some small errors in his data. Since then he got lots of mail asking him to buy advice from MD.

MD said also that he should expect a lot of luck on certain dates. One the dates was April 14, and lo and behold he received shortly after that a letter from NAC dated April 13 (when it was already April 14 over here), suggesting he had “won” a large amount af cash (441,055.23 euro or 30 annual payments of 28,080.08 euro).

Curiously that letter was (1) entirely in Dutch en (2) looked as if it had been sent from the USA (but probably from the Netherlands and (3) contained some of the same errors as my friend’s letter to MD.

Also here a trinket for 15 euro (handling costs) and the instruction that buying won’t increase your chances of winning (going from zero to zero won’t be an crease, I guess). But how to fill out the reply form without “buying” is totally unclear. Also here lots of fine print all in Dutch!

An Australian lotterysystem based in Winnelie NT 0821 used the same address data.

I live in Norway, and I’ve resieved 3 letters, all of them scams.
One from NATIONAL AWARDS COMMISSION and two from Opportunities Unlimited Publications, Inc. Both companies operates from kansas city.

Last letter came today, 22 may-07.
I’m going to reply on that one,and I’m enclosing a scamreport. The money they ask for is for the MAO (jewelry) I don’t need that junk.

I play lotto at and I know they sold my address to these guys, since they are the only company I’ve given my address to. I will wright them a letter telling them what I think of that kind of monkybussiness.

It’s a good thing we have the internet, thank’s for posting these listings of scams.
I will report back to you if and when I get an answer from National awards commission.

I have been receiving award letters from award notification and all the others like Sara Freider,Pasquilania and other sweepstakes offers from national exchange magazine.
Please my advice to every body,please do not fall for this,they are all scams.
Nothing is free in USA and the world as a whole.You got work for anything.These scams use ways to rip u off and put u in trouble wit yo bank and otherf institution.And dont be superstitious enough to believe in fortune tellers.
God is the only one to help you get your dream true.No fortune tellers.
Take care and trash any letter from this dishonest fads and liers.
I do receive offers from them but never sent them a penny.I will take time and sent them a warning letter and might give a copy to the authorities.

Never ever believe this scams and trust me if u believe them,u make the greatest mistake in your life.Use yo money to buy somethin for yourself or yo family not these cheaters.Protect yo address and identity please.Take care everyone.Be wise.

Like I always say: If someone says you have won something and then they are trying to get you to send them money, they are trying to take advantage of you.

If you have actually won something they should just award you with your prize and not be asking you to send them money.

I also just received this National Headquarters and Identification Center saying that i’ll win a million dollars and i must sent cash or check or money order the amount of $11.89. that why i went on the computor and did a search and found this. I’m so happy that there others who have gotten this letter and post a comment to warn others. This is heading for the trash!!!

All he had to do was send them $11.89 for procurement fees. Well I that I would check with the F.B.I. and the BBB before we sent them anything. I hope this scum sucking piggs get what’s coming to them. People are out here trying hard to make a fair living and then there are people like this who try to take our money that we have worked so hard for.

My boyfriend just received letter similar two days ago in the mail saying that he was guaranteed $1,900,000. The name of the company that sent it to him was NAAC, National Awards Advisory Center. I told him it sounded too good to be true, and why should you send money to receive money. They said he needed to send the $20 to confirm that he was still interested. But why couldn’t he just send in a letter stating he was still interested? Well him being older than me, he thinks it is a legitimate company and doesn’t want to hear that it’s a scam and sent in the $20 today. I did some research while he was on the phone and he was like, “aww naw it’s real. Those people didn’t send in the fee.” But i just came to this website and read comments that some of yall did send in the fee and the company just sent letters basically asking for more money. Too bad I got off the phone a few minutes b4 i came to this website.

I just got my letter today from anc saying that I would need to send in 11.98 to process for my 1 million dollars this is like the second time someone has sent me something in regards to winning money. I learned from the first time. No one tells you, you have won something if you have not played anything.

I live in Ontario, and get this crap as well”award notification commission”.When first letter came I was very excited.They said “no purchase is necessary and purchase will not increase chances to win”
But they ask for 15.0 dol. so I did send.Then the second letter came
the same story but,they ask for I send them again what happen today morning oct.02/2007.
After work I check my mail box there was surprise for me,another letter from them,this time they ask for 50.0 dol.I rush to my bank
to make a stop payment for my 25.dol.cheque.
Folks…comments are great but instead of this we should do something more about this fraud.Maybe e-mail FBI??

I am disgussted, We recieved a letter today and it is very much like what everyone on this page is talking about. This letter came with a formal entry processing docket-record for 2007 designated recipient. It asks how you want the money, it has bar codes and official stamps on the paper and says it is from james mallory, financial managment officer award notification commission. It also says send 11.89 to process award infomation and has a address of p o box 2905, kansas city, ks 66110. Thankfully I looked on the internet and saw this, becasue I thought we won and I was looking for a customer service number to talk to someone before sending any money out. What a joke, I am glad I found this.

P.S. By looking at the form from the top is allot different then my form, the letter has bar codes and form numbers, so be careful it looks like they know people are catching on and trying to change their letters to be more proffessional.

I got an “Award Notification Commission” letter today. My wife said the envelope had “****ONE MILLION DOLLARS****” on the envelope, and I immediately said “FRAUD!!!” before she said who it was from and the envelope had “Extremely Confidential And Private Letter”, “SECURED CONTENTS”, and “DELIVERY CONTROLLED BY OFFICE OF CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER”.
How did I know? 1. I didn’t ask for it! 2. I have no idea who they are. What I’m looking for is who to report them to, before they rip too many people off. A lot of damage can be done with the CREDIT CARD INFORMATION they ask for.

The Award Notification Commission letter starts off saying “With all due pleasures on this, …” and “is ready at this time to begin the process entering your legal name on record in reference to the opportunity to enter for Award AMOUNT …”. WHAT KIND OF ENGLISH IS THIS? What does it take to recognize fraud?

Posted: October 27, 2007 at 3:54 am

I have always followed one simple rule. NEVER enter a sweepstakes in which I am required to pay money to enter. “A PURCHASE IS NOT NECESSARY AND WILL NOT IMPROVE ODDS OF WINNING.” I wonder how many people read this letter and felt coerced into sending $11.89 to be able to get their $1,000,000. prize? I’m NOT one of them!

In my opinion, the simple rule that Rich follows is exactly the right way to go. It’s a very simple “litmus test” when dealing with these kinds of things.

I’ve lived by this rule for many years as well. It’s very easy: If they are asking you to send money to either enter a sweepstakes or collect your “winnings,” don’t do it! Throw it away and forget it.

Posted: October 27, 2007 at 8:32 am

It’s interesting that we have been hearing from some people in other countries that are receiving these things. I am really kind of surprised by that, but perhaps I shouldn’t be.

After all, I suppose money collected from people in Italy or Ireland is as good as money collected here in the U.S.

Come to think of it, with the exchange rate the way it is now, maybe they are making out better collecting Euros!

From what I can tell, the previous comment from Detective Fraser is genuine. It did come from the domain that is used by the Lawrence, Massachusetts Police Department.

Very interesting that they are interested in hearing reports of people receiving these letters.

In light of this, it may be worth reporting these to your local police if you receive one.

Thanks to Detective Fraser for this information.

Comment from Admin
Posted: November 19, 2007 at 11:39 pm

That’s a good question, Jehnny.

We did have a comment that was left here a short while back from a detective at the Lawrence, Massachusetts Police Department that indicated that they are interested in hearing about it when people receive these letters.

I don’t know if police in other areas are also interested, but I suppose it would not hurt to contact them and ask.

Personally, I just throw them away. After I post them here with my comments, of course.

I live in Canada, in a tiny town near the USA border. I just recieved this in my mailbox today. I read through it, it looked really genuine. My instincts told me to look up thier address and contact info, since if it was a real document of monetary value, it should have hairs in the paper it’s made of (void of such hairs obviously). The only connections I found to thier address in reality is this forum. I’m a University student, barely able to pay rent, and they send this garbage? How cruel can you get? Asides that, how in all the world did they get my address? I don’t even give my family my address! I am going to consider taking this to the authorities. This is just not fair to anyone. They tried to scam me out 15 dollars. Thanks everyone here for saving my dough.

I intend to call our local police station to ask them to warn people in are area of this scam. I live in Brockville, Ontario, and I too received this letter. They asked for $15.00 in two separate envelopes, (not too bright on their part.) I sent the mail back to them, minus any money, but they said the money would cover a high quality health ring, and $2500.oo gift coupons.

The old adage, “if it sounds to good to be true, it is,” would apply.

What is disturbing is that I have entered PCH contests, and Reader’s Digest contests. Both of these are legitimate. At first I was assuming this was from PCH, (until I saw p.o. box on the envelope, no signatures, and a request for money. PCH states that if anyone calls, or sends info. referring to PCH Canada, you have won, it isn’t so!!!

In our area people have received calls with harassing follow up calls to send taxes of $25.00 to cover a $250,000 win.

Unless the Prize Patrol shows up at my door with a cheque, these people will receive no money from me!!!

Hey you guys,
I just received 3 letters on the same date awarding me different cash awards ($959,000.00;$1,822,052.63; $999,000.00) but all requiring $20.00 to process.
two letters were signed by the same person: J.Peter Sartin. The third was signed by Robert A Wilcox, Jr.

They were sent from Awards Compilation Division, Prize Compilation Division, and Payment Report Systems.

Thanks to all you whistle blowers out there for saving me a heart attack and $60.00.

Anybody out there subscribe to a newsletter called “strategic investment”? Because of the address used on these letters, I know that somehow these scumbags got my address from this newsletter.

No email address or contact information & official website address. I just got online to search this agency online & Thanks a ‘MILLIONS’ to you all for saving me. I dont understand why people do this to each other? And, i guess we never will….. Thanks again you all!

I am a Kansas resident. I have meet the scum bag that runs this scam in person along with the fall guy. Westport Enterprises is a dummy company that has many fake names to run this type of scam. The real company is Global Postal Solutions. is the website with address of the real company. The 2 guys that run the show are Kevin Brandes and Floyd A Anderson. Anderson is the guy who hides and just collects money. Brandes runs the show and the fall guy that oversees things is Bill Graham. They have been on the news here locally for the scam and hide the real locations of where things get shipped out from. If you pay you will never see money. Plain and simple. These guys are big time scum that steal for a living.

If you have been a victum of this scam than call GPS in the link I provided. That is the company they use to ship all mail to hide from the post office. It is also the company that controls all the scam mail that goes out. Westport is just a company that covers it all up.

My father has been scammed by these companies for over 2 years and $18,000 plus. Everyday he goes to his mailbox and there are atleast 40 letters telling him he has won a million dollars, just send the fee to acquire it. These companies get your information and then sell it other companies as you being an easy target. Before long you start getting phone calls saying that you need to send a few thousand to this country or that to get your money. All SCAMS, be careful. We’ve tried everything to get it to stop, including, calling the post office, the police, the fbi, changing the phone number, but nothing stops it. Be careful, don’t send them money.

Wooo Hoooo!! The letters have made it to the southern end of the US – Baton Rouge, LA(sarcastically speaking). As most have mentioned, the new name is Award Notification Commission (ANC) with a signature now from James Mallory – funny how his name isn’t even typed above the signature – so not common. The requested amount is still $11.89 with a special delivery option Premium offer of a $2,500 gift certificate for use at I feel just as you all do, I don’t give my address to anyone nor do I subscribe to random magazines or sweepstakes, so my question is “WHERE DO THESE PEOPLE FIND US?” Regardless, some of you may try this…request your name, mailing address, and phone numbers be removed from national contact lists. In most cases you have to do this every 5 years to keep your name out of their sites.
Check out this site:

Well done people! As I have been added to these scammers address list too. I have received several different types of scams: one wanted me to play a small sudoko game on a tic tac toe board; I would have had to pay $5 a puzzle to enter. That is $15 … Another I would have to answer a question correctly and send like $9 to get to the next level!! Anyway, so far I would have had to send over $50 to different prize affiliates or whatever they are… I’m not falling for it either. I was surprized to find all of these letters against NAC!!! Way to go people! I am returning the scammers papers without the money! It is worth the .41 stamp — just put mickey and minnie mouse and make up a credit card # 6666666 or something. They want to play… Lets play!!!

this is the strangest forum… every person that complains about being scammed shouldn’t use credit cards. I notice a lot of complainers say they’re so poor, how can those thieves rob them of their hard-earned $15, and so on. The fact is, credit cards were DESIGNED for people who want to live beyond their means (a.k.a. working class, college students, foreigners, etc.) A lot of those credit card companies probably just sell names and addresses to the scammers… for a cut of the profits of course!

I will say i am Happy with “National magazine Exchange” Yea, the always send in entry numbers and try to get me to upgrade, and even sent me some free cheesy his and her gift watches. but i just say no, i don’t want to upgrade. They have great prices on magazines and when i get tired of one i call and change it to another, and of course they try to get me to upgrade, and i say no.

This was our first letter, we’ve never had any dealings with this “Award Notification Commission” before. I agree with several of these postings — surely something can be done to stop this scamming crapt! I know several people who are “too trusting” and would fall for this!

to all of you, read this one very careful.
I’m in Belgium, i received a letter telling me I won up to 73,353,300 Euro, thats more than 100.000.000 US $…. I’m rich!!
The letter is translated in French, and, this is different this time: I have to pay 20 Euro to have a change to enter into a lottery draw.

I have actually two possibilities: they pay me 4.632.000 Euro per year (total 1,389,607 Euro ‘? my calculations are giving me other numbers…) or a single payment of 73,353,300 Euro.
4,632,000 x 30 = 138,960,000 Eur…. please, let me dream, I’m rich!
That’s 200,000,000 US dollar….
I’ve been rich, in my dreams, for 2 minutes, at least that’s something!

My , wife got hers in the mail this week, I pick it up read it,Did alittle research (30 min.)And promptly filled out the Payment Slip.On the info side I put – 0 – . turned it over to the back, blank side and wrote SCAM THIS A——. And promptly mailed our prize confermation out!! If we get enough people to clog up there P.O. boxs with unfilled credit forms and a nice little message may- be they will get the hint. Oh yea Big Black Sharpie works well.

I received these letters and they seem to keep coming after I sent them money stupidly. I called the better business bureau and they basically told me that there is nothing they can do because if you pay an electric bill in your state or receive magazines they can get your information from that. Also they let me know it is public record so there is not really anything we can do about it. It is sad that hard working, honest people get ripped off by these types of people.

I just received one from William McPherson with the address now P.O BOX 2905 KANSAS CITY ,KANSAS,66110 ASKING FOR 11.89 Now it’s for a 2 million dollar prize. I’m just going to mail it back without the “optional” fee. Clogging up their PO boxes is one way of fighting back. DO NOT send these crooks any bank or credit card info!

Instead of feeding the poor were too busy eating for our own selves.
That is the point I was trying to make. I do apologize but this country is the most wealthiest place on earth. Why the SCAMS, why the HASSLE, & the CHEATS??

3/4/2009 just received the exact letter in the mail today. Thought i would check it out online first before answering anything. I was right a scam. I thought something was up when i could not immediately find out anything about this company. Hope others read these to help prevent them from getting involved with this scam.

I am really getting annoyed with the crap from some idiot in England (allegedly) and some small remote country I have never heard of, or if I have disregarded. I have inherited millions, which by now if I were to collect all from these different e mails I would be a billionaire. (Then I would not be bailing out AIG, I would be helping John Q Public). I keep deleting, and they keep re-appearing. Drives me nuts. So I give them my address as General Delivery in my city state and zip code. Oh yes, and my name is my email address. MAKE THEM STOP !!!!!

Also got one from a Prize Security International at P>O> Box 110832, Naples, FL 34108.
Basically the same theme.
We have forwarded both of them to the U.S. Post Office Inspector.
Recommend everyone do that.

A client of mine, who is recovering from a brain injury, received a similar mailing, this one from the “Allocation Director” of “Lincoln, Jameson, O’Connell”, with the same Naples, FL PO Box address mentioned in Bob’s September 24 comment. This mailing asked for a $49.99 allocation fee. Fortunately, I was able to intercept this before he paid it, and the mailing will be sent to the Postal Inspector. I’m really outraged that this outfit is trying to scam vulnerable people.

OMG!!! I just got the same freaking letter. I was about to send in the $11.89 payment, but thank God I found all your blogs. Im gonna send them the form all right, without payment. Because it does say, NO PAYMENT OR PURCHASE NECESSARY AND WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR ODDS OF WINNING.
Therefore, to the mail box it goes, lets see if I REALLY win something without paying them $hit… hahahaahahhaaa They are soooooooo lame!!!

I got a letter from them today. At first I thought it was from PCH because they do have some nifty little items that I occasionally purchase. After looking further I realized they are some b.s. company that wants me to pay $11.98 for a $2,500.00 gift certificate for up to 75% off online merchandise while trying to lead me to believe I’ve won 2 million. This letter has SCAM all over it.

She took my address and name and said that they took me off their mailing list. So we will see if they actually did! Here’s the number 816-525-7888. Oh and they don’t answer the phone with a business name all she said was this is Heather how may I help you!!!

Some tell me its from grocery shopping with the savings card they say you can save even more. Most of those places sell your name and address, BEWARE!! here are the latest address the SCAMS are coming from!!

As I type those out O notice all from Kansas City. I’m thinking someone must work at that particular post office to have so many mail boxes and same zip codes. I think the postal inspection should be advised. Something shaddy is defiantly is going on here!!

I just called Award Notification Commission at 1-816-525-7888 (above). Keely Peterson told me they are not connected to any company. After persistent questioning and threatening to call BBB, she said they are connected to Abacus at 888-780-3869. When asked directly she said they were not connected to Westport Enterprises, Inc. After several more angry questions from me, she said that our address was not on Westport’s mailing list. I said, “So you’re not connected to Westport, but you have their database in front of you?” Oops! After that she said she couldn’t answer any more questions, that I couldn’t speak to anyone else, and she hung up on me. She did say she had removed me from their mailing list.
