I have received a message gram from Award Notification Commission P.O. Box 2905 Kansas City, KS 66110 saying that I am eligible for a prize of $2,000,000.00 and that I should send $25.00 for processing. The Director Of Operations is BRIAN PETERS.

Hello,This appears to be a common scam that reappears in many places and under many names. You can read about similar scams at the Internet Crime Complaint Center.Eventually the con artist may even send you a cashier's check or money order and request that you deposit it the check and send back a portion of the funds. At sometime in the future - after you have sent the money - you will find that the check you deposited was fraudulent and the money will be assessed against you.Here is the site to file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center: http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspxWish I had better news.
