    Jambo Family: (Hello in Swahili)

    What do you do when you get sweepstakes offers in the mail, in your e-mail, telephone calls telling you that you have won a certain amount of money, brand new car, and things of that nature?

    How do you respond to stuff like this?

    And how about this 12 for one penny offers? How do you respond to that, and what did you think of it?

    Simple, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Especially if you didn't sign up or enter any contest. I've gotten so many "Instant Winner" notifications, yet, I rarely enter anything that requires my address, phone number or email address. Since when is anyone that quick to give something away for free?

    Throw the letters in the thrash and delete the e-mails. Nothing is free and anything that sound too good too be true is probably not true...


    Peace.....

    Toss `em! The only "winner" in any of them are the folks that collect your address/personal info so that they can send you even more junk mail! Occasionally, a big deal will be made about a "winner" to keep folks hoping that their turn will come up! All scams! Toss `em ... with prejudice!!

    "Freedom" should be spelled "FreeDumb"! Ain't no such critter in a capitalistic society!!
