EverythingHealth is warning readers about a scam that could easily cost you money if you are trapped by it.
I received a very official appearing letter from “Pepsi Co.” with the Pepsi and ABC logo on the stationary. The letter is on good stock paper with an official appearing bar code and it informs me that I have won One Million Dollars in the “Play for a Billion” contest in partnership with Pepsi and ABC Network. I will also appear on the ABC network for a chance to win one billion dollars.
The Pepsi Corporation has a warning about the scam on their web site. It advises that if you receive a letter purportedly from them with a check enclosed that you ignore it and do not attempt to cash the check.
