    I just received a similar letter from the same person (James Kupula, jameskupula@collector.org, jameskupula@live.com) except that mine is for the New York Lottery. Since I never even entered the lottery, I knew it was a fraud.

    The address given on the header is NY Lottery, 15 Beaver Street, NYC Ref: EAASL/941OYI/SHYN, Batch: 12/25/0034, Website: www.nylottery.ny.gov

    The Letter reads as follows and is near identical to the one above so full of red flags. The same ticket and reference numbers are used. How could the NY Lottery have the same numbers as Google? BUT, there is also an error: note that the office was changed to Watford, UK (from South Africa above) but it still says remit to South Africa. The Controller General (of the US Lottery on both, Not NY)changed from a Barbara Moore to a David Mark. Also, Google is not part of any offical US Lottery system.:
