Received a letter from Markson Securities, Inc claiming i had won 3rd place in an international lotto or sweepstake though i never entered a sweepstake and ive never bought a lottery ticket in my life. References $130,000.00 in cash winners for 3rd place. The "Clearance fees" as required by international and federal law would be deducted from the winners and paid via certified check or bank transfer. Letter directs to contact the above 2 named people at an 844 number supposedly for their Buffalo, N.Y. field office. I have taken no action towards or against this letter. Its obviously a scam.
