Did someone's "Promotional Department shows that you have been awarded a Touchpad Tablet" ?
I got a deceptive looking letter in the mail (paper mail) today saying:
"Our Promotional Department shows that you have been awarded a Touchpad Tablet, Complete with new Android software."
And then it mentions a phone number to call and there is a coupon that claims it is sponsored by DirectBuy.
Of course it sounded too good to be true, and too suspicious. So I searched online and found similar versions of the same letter (but with different "local" twists):
Example: Timeshare "Scam" Uses Google Name
I wanted to put this buyer beware info out there since it appears these letters are popular.
Note that timeshares are regarded by some as not being "scams", but the formatting of this letter I received is certainly less than straightforward and upfront.
