Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
Letter claimed to give a free Android Touchpad Tablet from the gifting department at no charge. Had to call *** and give code and would also receive a $300 restaurant .com certificate. Did not call–obviously there is a cost somewhere.
Signature illegible–address in the "fine print" on the bottom of the back of the letter.
