Hello there. Please note:This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

I told you in your original question that there is no such thing as "USA DEAF LOTTERY." I told you that this was a scam.

The check you have received is fake. Please read the link HERE. This is also called an "advanced fee check" scam. And the check will be taken by the bank and the money advanced, until the check proves bad/void/false.

I am not going to argue with you. I cannot force you to go to the authorities and can only provide general information as I have in our prior thread.

You are being scammed.

Good luck.

I do not have anything else to add, Doug. You had rated my previous answer on our previous thread HERE negatively when I told you that this was a scam (although I stand by it), and the only thing I can do in this thread is to reiterate the information. My answer stands "as is" whether you have received the check or not. This is a scam.

I am going to opt out and allow other experts weigh in, if they want to.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am a DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTOR.
There is no such thing as the USA Deaf Lottery, it is a scam, a fraud. A fraud is something that does not exist, like this lottery. They will ask you for information or money and you will receive nothing at all. If you have not sent them any money yet DO NOT SEND THEM A DIME because you will not be getting any check from them.
Please contact the FBI and report this scam, http://www.ic3.gov
See: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10154607384920175&id=143790095174
Many people are being told the same thing you are being told, it is a FRAUD and you need to report it to the FBI.
