Six days a week, my mail slot is stuffed with envelopes addressed to me with announcements of my winning thousand — and even million-dollar sweepstakes of which I am not all aware I am a contestant.
But — and this is where it really gets interesting — I must first send a check in the amount of $5 to $15.95 to register my eligibility in these so-called contests of which I have already been named a winner.
I have responded to two of these (with no check) and explained that as a senior citizen, I have limited funds for something like these "contests," so "please send me my winnings and I will immediately send substantial donations to the addresses provided."
Where does this operation end?
