Strike It Rich Offer

The letter sure sounds tempting.

It urges you to call right now about your entry in a drawing for $1.1 million.

The letter explains you can win $550,000 in one lump or $36,666.67 spread out in 30 yearly payments.

It also says you don't have to buy anything to win. It claims a purchse won't improve your odds of winning.

When I called, I learned the company is the National Magazine Exchange in Florida.

While I was on the phone the rep said I was registered for the drawing, but only one person will win next April and the odds are about 1 in 26 million.

The rest of the time she asked me to buy magazines for $1.29 a week. Later she pitched a vacation cruise.

A check of the Better Business Bureau website shows 318 complaints against the company.

A lot of people say they didn't realize the true cost of the magazines and later asked for a refund.

Bottom line, do your math and know how much you're paying. This company is legitimate. It will award one prize and like the lottery, you have a better chance of getting hit by lightning than winning the half a million dollar prize.
