Seriously, drop the Andy Hagler will win my money bs...

Last April of 2007 it didn't work to tell me that Andy Hagler would win my money from Publishers Clearing House and here we go again, another email telling me:
Dear Lisa Ward:

Right now, Andy Hagler is hoping you don't read this letter.

Why? Because Andy Hagler has already been selected the alternate recipient of prize money that could rightfully be won by you, Lisa Ward in a matter of days.

You see Lisa Ward, there is a real chance the prize entry opportunity you're reading about right now could be selected as the winner of $25,OOO.OO in a very short time (Giveaway #1116).

Last time we discovered how many other people got the same exact email about Andy Hagler, and what I now want to know is, is Andy getting paid to be used like this as a scare tactic?

I've been trying to figure out where America's prosperity went, and now I know. That damned Andy has all the money.

Exactly! I think we need to have a talk with this Andy Hagler...

That is so funny. I skipped right to the "Dear Lisa Ward" line. Got to the bottom of the letter and thought 'gee, that sounds like Publisher Clearing House'.

When I first sent in the entry (15 years ago maybe) via US mail - I became the proud recipient of roughly 25 pieces of junk mail every day. They sold my information - my first experience with spam. Albeit US mail spam.

The next time was online. If you answer one of their emails or jump from the email to their website this authorizes them to distribute your information.

When I was so stupid as to reply to an EMAIL (somehow thinking this was safer than licking a stamp) from them about 5 years ago I was deluged with spam and worse. Not all of their 'affiliates' are actually nice people.

And I'm obviously not too bright sometimes.

Hi,
I just received the email from PCH with Andy Hagler name used too. I found your blog by doing a search of the name.

It's amazing how many of us will most likely get the same notice about good ol Andy...

I just recieved the Andy Hagler letter also. With all these Andy letters, can anyone do something about this to PCH? Sounds a little illegal somehow.

I get heaps of correspondence of this nature - I feel shunned that Andy hasn't dropped me a line

:-(

Have you gotten the "If you don't enter we'll have to stop sending you invitations" letter, yet?

They love me , THEY LOVE ME - I'm back in the loop. You don't supppose PCh cruise blogs like this to monitor their "reach"?

Especially pleasing to read Dear Pasty Muncher....

Munch on!
