    I hope I posted this in the correct place.

    So, I just received a bingo card (Bingo Scratch and win extravaganza) in the mail claiming $2 million in prizes. Just for the fun of it, I scratched and matched everything. Not that I wasn't already suspicious... It lists a ps3 as a prize (which definitely isn't the newest one), and there's no company info on it. What really made me question it was that I made a match, and me being me, I never win anything.

    I also did a quick search on similar scams, and it seems there was a 'triple bingo' scam in Alberta about 2 years ago.

    Anywho, just thought I would post this so that people see it BEFORE they fall into this scam. I would also like to point out the childlike photoshop abilities of this particular scammer.

    Here are pictures. Sorry for the low quality, my tablet doesn't focus.

    There are so many scams out there. It really bothers me as seniors and those that are mentally challenged almost always are the ones that fall victim to this. Did this come via post or was it dropped off. It it came by post, then canada post should try harder to keep this junk out of our system.

    It came in the post, which I found rather disappointing. I agree that canada post should do more to prevent this sort of scam from circulating.

    How about making the company's life more interesting by sharing the promotion with your province's consumer services ministry?
    Canada Post likely found the content passed its own mail regulations and we know that CP is needing all the mail volumes it can still get.
