Dont know where to put this so here goes...Last week, we received in the mail an envelope with a check in it and a letter stating that we had won a lottery and that this check was to help pay the taxes on it. I immediately knew this was a scam for a couple of reasons. 1) It was made out to my 13 year old daughter and 2)we never entered a lottery. It really burns me up that someone could do that to someone especially my daughter. If she had opened that letter before I did, she would have been really upset when she found out that it was a scam. It was a lot of money and for a 13 year old she would have been on cloud nine shopping. It bothers me that people would have actually cashed or deposited that check and then wound up having to pay back that money. It looked like a real check. It was drawn on a bank in Texas and the company was an oilfield supply in Texas. Had routing numbers and account and the blue security fibers in it. Melissa
