Free Gift Cards?

Who are they kidding?

I don’t know about you but, I am getting tired of those offers about FREE GIFT CARDS from Wal-Mart, or anyplace, that keep coming in my e-mail

I don’t really mind deleting them, it’s just the idea that they think I am stupid enough to believe they are going to send me a $1000, or even a $500, gift card for doing nothing more than giving them my mailing address.

I am sure you know the kind of thing I am talking about.. You get an e-mail that says “we have a delivery for you” and all you have to do is say where to ship it. Some of them will go so far as to imply that as soon as you send the information, your mailing address, or even just your zip code, they will mail you a gift card.

Maybe I am just dense..  I fell for this kind of thing, a couple of times, and filled out the information.  That is when you get to the important part: where you participate in a SURVEY.  Now a survey to me means that they ask you a couple of question.  To me it does not mean that I have to buy something, and you can’t finish what is needed to get your FREE GIFT CARD unless you take a selection of their offers.

I don’t bother with them anymore, as I have not idea if they really would send me a $1000 value gift card, or an empty $1000 gift card that I would be expected to put $1000 into it.

Why would I trust someone who, at this point, has LIED to me at least twice.  They lied to me when they said that all I have to do was give them my mailing address, and again when they said it was FREE.  If they had been telling the truth they would have sent me several of them by now as I HAVE filled out that information, and have yet to see a single gift card

I would suggest you do like I do.  When one of these offers hits my e-mail I just delete it, and wonder why no one get prosecuted for FRAUD.
