I do I tell if it is real, Please read need some judgement!

I got this letter in the mail today from security services ltd, that says I have won a sweepstake. It looks pretty real, but I'm not sure. It says I have to sign the voucher and send them $26 Processing fee to get my reward (612,444) . What are the latest scams that you know of and how do I know if this is one of them? Anyone else get something like this???

  • It is a scam and you should turn it over to the police. They need to know that a scam is operating in their area. Also, alert the media so they can cover it.
