    I just got one of these cards in the mail. Not surprisingly I'm a "winner".

    Back in the 70's I got a home presentation for a Filter Queen vacuum cleaner. At the end of the song and dance I was given a ridiculous price for it to which I said no. The woman got all upset. I told her she should have told me the price at the beginning instead of at the end of her presentation. I did get my "prize", a little cutting board - for cheese, I think.

    Dont even waste your time. I decided to purposely follow them. They came and took almost 2 hrs pitching their very expensive products. After that, they told me to sign on there and then or else offer would lapse, besides they are very busy due to increased demand and they cant assure me that they will follow up. When I challenged them that if I cant access them during sales, then I dont think I will access them post sales, they said they will keep awake till midnight to ensure I dont miss promotion.

    On pricing, both me and my friend in another city won the same thing. A card that directs you to a website where anyone can go and get the discounts they are talking about. This is simply a sales tactic. You dont win anything

    I found this:

    "Manitouwadge and area residents are advised to be cautious regarding a recent promotion by a company believed to be from London Ontario which disguises itself as a lottery of sorts distributed through Canada Post recently.

    While the tickets claim there is “no purchase required” and that all Canadian and US residents (except Quebec residents and prior winners) are eligible to win, the go on to state that entrants must be employed or retired homeowners who request a presentation with the “view to possibly enter into an agreement” with them to supply a homecare product. When we called the person on the other end quickly became very irate when we asked some basic questions about the nature of their business eventually, before hanging up, shouting that “we sell $5000 pieces of equipment, of course you have to be a homeowner” which seems to imply that they expect callers to do more than ‘view a presentation’.

    This isn’t a new ploy by the company listed as 2164909 Ontario Limited on their “scratch ticket” promotional cards as a quick Google Search brings up years of complaints and warnings by OPP detachments from throughout the province which describe very similar misrepresentations of who they are and what they offer..."
