Letter with $1,965.00 check-Canadian Lotto
I received a letter today from Canada that said I won $65,000. They sent me a check for $1,965.00 to deposit in my account--from a Wells Fargo BAnk San Diego, with the company name SMS.ac, Inc. It says I have to deposit this in my account so they an send me my processing fee associated with the prize pool winning. I called the Canada phone # and the mailbox is full.

I was always told that if you have to pay anything for a sweeps, it's not legit. I will try and call the co in San Diego. Any advice on this? Anyone else get this?
