I received an official notice from Novation Capital Investment

Resolved Question:

I received an "official notice" from Novation Capital Investment LLC, lottery resources management and payment verification saying I had won a second prize in a USA Sweepstakes lottery. Included was a check designated to pay the tax on my winnings and i am instructed to contact the claims agent and activate the check. I am somewhat suspicious of any notifications which arrive in the mail. Can you tell me how to determine if this is legitimate or some kind of scam?

If your letter looks something like one of these, then it's likely a scam.

Hope this helps.
