I got the same letter back in November when I was living in New Orleans. Packed it and was going to turn it into some authority. I forgot about it, until I found it the other day. I have read about enough scams to know that something wasn't right, but I can see where some would believe it. The thing that concerns me is that at the bottom of the letter are several reputable businesses that "sponsor" this program - Amazon, Wal-mart, Sears, Staples, Home Depot, Lowe's, and more. I would think that these companies would do something about the use of their names. I plan on contacting some of the companies about this.
