AUTOMATICALLY I THOUGHT IT WAS A SCAM BUT I SAID I WOULD CALL TO SEE IF THERE WAS ANYTHING TO IT. DURING THE CONVERSATION I WAS TOLD THAT I WAS CHOSEN AT RANDOM TO RECEIVE A REWARD BECAUSE OF ACTIVITIES I WAS INVOLVED WITH ON CERTAIN INTERNET SITES. I ASKED IF THIS WAS ABOUT A TIMESHARE AND WAS TOLD "NO", I AKSED IF I HAD TO BUY ANYTHING, I WAS TOLD "NO", I ASKED IF THE REWARD SOME KIND OF INCENTIVE FOR SOMETHING ELSE, I WAS TOLD "NO". THEN I WAS GIVEN A CONFIRMATION NUMBER FOR MY REWARD AND TOLD CONGRADULATIONS.

AFTERWARDS I WAS ASKED IF I WAS INTERESTED IN BUYING CERTAIN MAGAZINES, I WAS I TOLD THEM NO UNTIL THEY CAM TO THE TIME MAGAZINE OFFER.

I just called this place because I got the letter also. The funny thing when the girl started to ramble on, I stopped her and said " You may want to pull up google and actually place your name into the search" She asked "Why?"
So I started to question her in regards to the [redacted]s and the Fraud and Scam.
Her excuse " I am very new to this company and my Supervisor will take care of the credit card payments"
I told her she needs to recheck herself and I would absolutely not give a Credit Card Payment No MATTER WHAT!
Wow! I told them to never send me anything any more!

I received my notification last night (12/23/08) and the first thing that I thought of is any "official notice" that comes with a smiley face on it deserves to be treated like a scam. It's not even on official company letterhead. It's merely a printout with my name on it saying that they've been trying to reach me and I should call. Unfortunately for them, I do not even want to call them for fear that it may give them access to my cell phone. It appears from the other postings that others are being harassed after they call to inquire about the notice regardless if they sign up for the magazines or not. I think this may be one of those situations where you just forget you received the notice and don't follow up on it or else it could open up another can of worms. Hopefully I will not receive any more of these notices. If I do, I will post a follow-up to this note.
