Best Way Processing Center is it a scam?

I received a letter in the mail stating that I won 50 grand. I was instructed to cash a check that was included with the letter and then they would release the hold on the rest of my winnings. I noticed the envelope was post marked from Canada. The Letter was from Best Way Processing Center located in the virgin Islands. The enclosed check was from a company called Kaplan Early Learning Center which is in North Carolina. All of these are red flags to me. Has anyone actually received the 50 grand? Or is this a big scam? My Bank (Navy Federal) Advised me not to cash the check. I also wrote to reader's Digest because the letter stated that they got my name from Their Publisher's Clearing house data base. They told me that they are not affilliated with Best Way Processing Center. Also, did anyone else find it funny that the drawing was held in Dublin Ireland?
