they said i must obtain a Money Pack (?) Scratch card to chow to the person who makes the delivery, along with my picture ID. My mother (who recently passed away) evidently entered this sweepstakes. They only gave me their phone number...1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.


Thank you for your response.

Unfortunately American Cash Awards has been flagged by the Better Business Bureau.

I realize that you are in Hawaii however it is important to note that the Colorado Attorneys Gen. office has a permanent injunction against the company based upon fraud. You can read the judgment here: releases/2012/11/30/113012 great lakes circulation default judgment.pdf

Additionally you may read of the experiences of others who have dealt with the company at this link:
