    Yes. A scam. Read the offer carefully. It usually says you already won a Grand prize + “others”. Everyone has the winning number. It implies you won $1million, or a vacation, or a 65″ TV. But guess what, you most likely one one of the “other” prizes…maybe a pen or a pencil, or some plastic beads…etc.

    I just received a scratch & match with a Target gift card. Upon calling the 800 number after my numbers matched, I receive an appointment on a certain day and time at a local Hilton hotel in Tucson. We meet in the lobby. What do you think? A scam?
