It's not just Publishing Clearing house.

Readers Digest soaked me in too! I Thought I was a winner!

My aunt had a "free year" membership give away thing, and it just ran out for me.

I got this letter in the mail, pretty thick stating I won a car. I read it through and it didn't seem like a catch, so I logged onto the website, followed through. It asked me to pick the colour, do this, do that. I was excited! Then the last stage said "CASH CHEQUE OR CREDIT CARD"

BOOM THERE IT IS!

I used to get tons of crap from them too all the time and I'd just stuff as much as I could of it back into the return envelope and drop it in the mail.
I haven't received a single thing from them for years now. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Are there still people getting things in the mail saying "you won something" and do not know it's a scam?

Those mail recipient should be shut down as well.
