We've talked about this before where somebody gets one of those letters or post cards in the mail promising a free cruise or airfare along with a free hotel stay. As most of us know, these things are complete gimmicks and should just be thrown away when you get them.
ABC News did a story on one such offer and I thought you'd find it interesting.
As you mom always told you, "If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is." And her other word of advice was, "Nothing is free."
p.s. the advertisement below is not something I added - it's automatically put in by the site and not someone I endorse.
