    Question

    Is Media Opportunities Direct, Inc a scam?

    I received a letter from MOD or MEDIA OPPORTUNITIES DIRECT, INC at PO Box 223, 6160 AE Geleen, The Netherlands telling me that I won $1,677,519.00 and asked for $26.00 processing fee.

    If you send the $26, they send you a letter saying Congratulations. Then they mention that you have to pay tax in order for the money to be released. They will ask you for $79. If you send that money, the game continues. They will ask you for money up to 5 times before you realize that they are cheating you. You were smart to be skeptical.

    • I am not so stupid as these criminal think. I immediately recognized this as a scam. Really, who gives this amount of money away to someone who has not entered any form of sweepstake or contest under the sponsorship of an organization unknown to the individual. I immediately checked for authentication of my suspicions. I hope others read this page before sending any money to someone you have no knowledge of.

    • I received one of these letters. Looked odd so I did a search. Thanks for the info, but I have another question. Isn't it against the Federal law to use the U.S.Postal Service to work a scam like this?
