MGM Mirage Sweepstakes Scam

I know y'all are too smart for this, but it's worth mentioning that a group of cranks have been sending out fake sweepstakes notifications to folks in California, Nevada and Texas which contain a "check" from MGM Mirage.

The letters instruct the recipients to deposit the check (which has the MGM Mirage logo on it) and pay an "administrative cost" to get the sweepstakes prize. Of course, the administrative fee goes to the jerks who sent this out.

Writing bad checks, mail fraud. Yikes... couldn't these buffoons thought of something more creative? Hope they made enough money to pay for that copy of Photoshop (which they probably stole.)

I wonder which logo they used?
