United States Administrative Services, Inc / Sewing Machine Rebate Scam
Upon purchase of a sewing machine from a Traverse City, MI retailer I was given information about the U.S.A.S. rebate program whereby I would receive up to the entire purchase price of the sewing machine if I followed detailed instructions, which included: mailing the original rebate stub by certified mail within 14 days of original purchase and, after 33 months, mailing all of the following: the remainder of the rebate form, original purchase receipt, proof that I paid for the machine, proof of my current address, copy of my drivers' license. I was told I would receive this rebate 6 weeks after mailing all required documentation.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
