Wow, I just won $1.5 million dollars! At least that’s what Paulson Independent Distributors wants me to believe. They sent a letter telling me how thrilled they were in sending me this communication informing me that I am a Cash Prize Winner. They went on to “certify and confirm” that their offices identified by computer readout that I was the holder of a specific sequence number and that I have definitely won a cash prize;

***$1,500.000.00 ONE POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS*** STANDS TO BE PAID AND YOU’RE HOLDING THE WIN OPPORTUNITY DOCUMENTS IN YOUR HANDS RIGHT NOW!

And here’s all I need to do to finalize my claim:

First, I am to take the sequence number and keep it in my records because it is my personal claim number. Then I need to go to the second page of this document and verify that all of my personal information (name and address) that is printed on the check image is correct;

PID million dollar winner

I am so glad they placed a lot of emphasis on the verification of my name and address by informing me that “something as simple as an incorrect address could mean absolute disaster.”

The next step is to sign, date, and send the document back to them along with a one time processing fee of $25.00 (cash, check, or money order). Once they receive the fee they will process the claim and rush the check to me along with report particulars (whatever that means) by return post.

Last thing they wanted to warn me about was the sponsor-set deadlines. They made it clear that I was to rush my delivery documents along with the fee to ensure that I remained eligible for my award check. Any delay could nullify my check claim status and forfeit my right to my reported prize win opportunity.

They close the letter as follows;

“Please allow me on this auspicious day to wish you the warmest regards on behalf of all the staff and officers of the Prize Payout Division. Enjoy your Award!”

I mistook auspicious for suspicious when I first read their letter and I started thinking that may have been a Freudian slip on their part.

So, am I going to sign the documents and send them $25.00? No, and I’ll tell you why…

First of all no where do they say I’ve won $1.5 million dollars.

***$1,500.000.00 ONE POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS*** STANDS TO BE PAID AND YOU’RE HOLDING THE WIN OPPORTUNITY DOCUMENTS IN YOUR HANDS RIGHT NOW!

They do say $1.5 million dollars “stands” to be paid and they do say that I have definitely won a cash prize and when I read the fine print located on the back of the document I learned that they were going to send me a check for $9,678.99, $967.89, $96.78, $9.67, or $.97

Here’s a comment from Ripoff Report website that makes a lot of sense;

PID scam

So, if I send them $25.00 it’s very likely they will send me a check for 97 cents. That’s a horrible ROI and I don’t like my chances of “winning” $96.78 let alone $1.5 million. I think I’ll pass on this and if you get a letter like this I think you should pass on this too.
