Thank you for your patience.

As much as I hate to give people bad news, this is indeed a scam.

Award Notification Commission is a typical prizes and lotteries scam full of misleading claims and misrepresentations such as “confirmed winner”. They promise a large prize, but you can't win a sweepstakes or lottery that you haven't entered. And no legitimate sweepstakes will require you to pay money or provide a check/money order in order to collect a prize. There is no "sweepstakes tax", "prize collection fee" or anything similar.

And, if I'm thinking of the same scam --read the fine print and you’ll discover that you haven’t won anything yet. Award Notification Commission operates a sweepstakes. The winning number has already been predetermined. You must enter the sweepstakes to see whether your number is ***** winning number. If the owner of the winning number does not respond, Award Notification Commission gets to keep the big bucks and instead will distribute smaller prize amounts ranging from $10,000 to $50. And you can bet people don't get anything.
