I have looked into the Brasco Lotto mystery as I too have the check. They are counterfiet checks and the company is looking to get the checks back. The address on the check is real and I was told the banks will not honor the checks. the company has contacted the authorities and is pressing charges against the person/people resposnible who did this. I have sent the my check back along with the letter as proof. Those who also have the checks should do the same thing as it is the right thing to do to catch the idiot who started this.
