Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.

This is a total common scam. A google search for American sweepstakes network will not turn up any company least not in the first page. But it will show several pages that report this company for fraud.

Ask yourself a simple question...did you actually enter this contest? If not, the answer is also simple, stay away...its a scam.

Certainly I would NOT give this company ANY personal information...and NO BANK INFORMATION and NO MONEY here at all.

There are multiple rip off reports of t his company just say no here and move on.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
