Court Shuts Down Massive Sweepstakes Scam

The defendants sent more than 3.7 million letters during the past two years telling "winners" all they had to do was send in $20, $50, whatever, to collect their $1 million or more in winnings.   The scammers allegedly sent out nearly 800,000 letters to people in 156 countries in the first half of 2013. They have collected more than $11 million from consumers since 2009.  The vast majority of the victims of this scam appear to be over 65.
