Sweepstakes fraud : how to prosecute?

Detroit, MI |

They are coming to get a check to cover the taxes, and then give me my prize. Do I have legal grounds to have them arrested beore money has exchanged hands? It seems to me fraud was already commited when they misrepresented themselves as publisher clearing house, is'nt intent to commit fraud a crime and therefore grounds for arrest?

Talk to the police and see if they will take a report.
