    You have the correct address for the Energizer holdings company. You can call them at 800-383-7323 to inquire about the check. I'd be hesitant to cash it unless you know what it is for. Was it a settlement for some type of law suit?

    As to the winner notification, shred it up. Its a well known scam.

    Do not reply to such mails!! Lotteries / drawings cannot be won without putting in bet amount, etc. This is a fraud that goes on around the world and hundreds of people have lost money to it. They'll ask you to pay the processing fee so that they can send but never do. The fee that they collect amounts to millions of $ due to the number of people they cheat and get away. I have received so many mails like that and now I have started making a joke of it - I reply to them saying I am happy with what I have and to donate the money in my name to their chosen NGO to fight poverty (they can cut the tax money from it, it's anyway mine)!

    DON'T BE A FOOL AND GET LOOTED!

    did you know you were in a drawing? that drawing date is over a year ago too, that sounds suspicious. usually if it sounds too good to be true, it is. I guess go to your local bank and tell them the story and have them contact the bank the check is from to verify the check.
