So what kind of offers do you get in the mail and do you ever go in to reaspond to them
do you get things in the mail saying you have just won a sweepstakes
or you have a chance to win 1 of 4 prices
or anything like that and do you ever reaspond to them or go in for them ?


I usualy don't i usualy just throw them away but after today im not going to do that anymore
i got something in the mail from Nick Mayers Lincoln Mercury in Cleveland area
so i went out there it said if your name is 1 of the 4 on the bottom of this card you are our monthly winter of the montly sweepstakes
could win 5.00 dollars cash 50 dollar gas card 2500 cash or a year worth of free gas
i figured ill go in they try to sell me a car i just say id like to claim my prise they give me 5 dollars because my name was one of them on the bottom and what happens i go in they sure try to sell me a car see if i want to trade mine in i told them no im not here to sell my car or trade it in or buy a new car dont wnt to waste your time test driving a car because Lincolns have sucked for atleast the last 10 years
so the sales man goes to check with his boss see what i won
i was for sure thinking id get the 5.00 cash because thats probably the scam they run to get it and what do they do they come back to me with a 50.00 shell Gas Card and say your name was picked on this
im like wow cool thanks see you next mailer LOL

The last offer i got was a letter from some church saying come and "find god". It also said that for $14 they would send me a "gold-tone plated cross" that had been prayed over to bring the holder financial success...

Imagine that, Nick Mayer sent me the same form, and I was also a WINNER! What a small world, huh?

They also said they'll give me $8000 for my 03 with 130k on it..... I keep checking the mail but the check hasn't arrived yet.... hmmmm.

yeah but the point is i went in for shure thinking that i was going to get one of those 5 dollar cash prizes they must give that to evyerone but i went in and got the 50 dollar gas card maybe you should take yours in your not that far form there

they offered me the trade in for my 2000 Seville SLS they offered me 5400

the whole point is not all junk mail offers or scams
i was suprised when he had soemthing other then a 5 dollar bill in his hand lol

The time it would take me to go there is worth more then 50 bucks.... I have this job thing that takes up most of my time. If I'm not working, I have lots of other stuff to do.
