Scam Description

Received a check for $8,957.20, checked with my bank and they haven’t gotten in touch regarding the check, they told me it was too good to be true. I was told to contact Chris or Ken Goodman about my prize, I won the grand prize (Chris was listed on one line then it was listed as Ken). Claim number is PAA-129 entry was based on cross promotion by credit card promotion and subscription. Within 5 business days I should receive my prize. I am required by international sweepstakes and the law to pay taxes on this winning. Was labeled as confidential, and the check was from Bank First Tennessee.
