I got an Email saying I won lots of money from My Coke Rewards. I already knew it was a scam and forwarded it to the Coke company. Probably not legal to post there reply but I got a nice thank you note for pointing it out.
So if you get one of these E-mails it is a big scam and ignore.
Also I almost fell for it as I do the My coke rewards and there was nothing about my SSN.
I bet whoever did this will be in deep do do as they used the coke trademark and that is nothing to mess with!!

As Keenan Wynn said in "Dr. Strangelove, "You'll have to answer to the Coca-Cola Company!"

I got this weird call telling me that I am getting a free emergency call device. If I don't want the service simply send it back. First of all I have NO idea what they are talking about. If it is a monitor device then the real money is in the monitoring, just like burglar alarm systems.
BUT- the law says that if I receive anything in the mail that I didn't order or pay for it belongs to me. Maybe I can use it for parts.

I am getting junk mail from a company that sells warranty service on the water line from the street to my foundation.

$5.00 a month to insure a 25 ft. length of buried pipe. I don't think so.

Warranty service is big money these days. You can't make a purchase at a big box store without them trying to sell you an extended warranty on what you just purchased. The other day I went into staples to get my concealed handgun permit laminated. The lamination was only $1.59 and they asked if I wanted to get an extended warranty! I laughed, but they were serious!

When I did installations for audio and video companies they considered extended warranties 'free money'. If a salesman sold one he usually got 50%.

Whenever someone tries to sell me a warranty, I simply ask why I need one. Are they trying to sell me known defective merchandise? Shuts them up every time.

I'll usually get a one time extension on a big ticket item. In 2000 I bought a pc and a 2 year warranty. the setup cost around $1900. the 2 year cut in after thefactory 1 year and the hard drive crashed a few months before the 2 year expired. I brought it and the papers in and they simply said to go pick one out on the floor that is similarly priced. It was remarkable how much more computer I got for the same money after 3 years.

That's a good thing.
However you were probably one out of a dozen people that actually used an extended warranty. Meanwhile thousands of these warranties are sold every day that people will never use. That's why we called it 'found' or 'free' money.

P.S- most of us are technical people. I've always been able to fix anything that went wrong. Except the toaster. It was using some kind of hyper-drive to send the bread around a distant star and bring it back before I even put the bread in. And darn it, I didn't buy the extended warranty.
