Hi SM,

Freelotto.com is a shady, yet legitimate company. It makes most of it's money selling your e-mail address to other companies and advertising through SPAM e-mails. While they will give some money out, your e-mail will be flooded with SPAM and other commercial e-mails.

Also, many players have accused the site of pressing them to buy merchandise or pay membership fees in order to collect prizes but never delivering the prizes they were told they won.

In addition, the prizes are often in the neighborhood of a dollar. While the company is taking your registration information and selling it to other marketers.

My advice would be to ignore the email.

I opened one of these today and as i was reading it something didn't seem right so I did some google searches and found this message board. My info is different though but it's still the same scam. The check amount is for $3,925.00 issued from Bank of America.
The address on the check is
Builders FirstSource- Texas Group L.P.
1790 Westpark Drive
Grand Prairie, Texas 75050

The letterhead says Century Lotto E-Payment Inc.. P.O. Box 675, St. Croix Virgin Islands 00841. My claims agent is Mr. Michael Wright (204)952-4978 and the director claim manager is Nicholas D. Cerson. ( I swear the actual signature looks like it says Michael Anderson).
So after reading some of the posts I decided to call my local post office not only to see what I could do but to also complain over it getting delivered to my neighbor instead of me. Which really scares me because I'm sure there is a way to cash these if they get into the wrong hands. Long story short, the man I talked to at the post office said there is basically nothing I can do except tear it up.
I just wanted to post that info in case someone gets the exact one I just did and hopefully will do a google search for names or addresses.

If they delivered it to your neighbor and he was able to cash it at a check cashing store, you would have been reponsible, until you could prove it was someone else that cashed it. Scary stuff.

Just a hunch, can you scan the back of the check, and post it.

I was looking around this morning and came across the best thing I have seen in years, a scammer blatantly using a scammer.

Google "yp.com scam"

The account number and routing number for this "legitimate" scammer, YP.com is the same account number and routing number that this counterfeiter from Canada is using. The guy from Canada is using YP.com's real account and routing number. That is great, no honor among thieves.

That is not what I was expecting to see for the back. I have a copy of one at home that I will have to post because there is something unique about the back of the check.
