What the heck? Weird advertising!!!
So, today, when I went to get the mail, there was an envelope addresses by hand to me - not a computer printed address label, but a hand wirtten address on the envelope. So far, it seems like it could be the sort of thing I get all the time. No return address - that's not that unusual, but it is a bit wierd for a hand written note. I figured the sender forgot - it happens. I open it up assuming that someone has sent me a note or some such thing, and pull out what seems to be a newspaper clipping. Across the top someone has written "Bonnie, get it. It works! J". When I unfold the paper it is a full page size advertisment for a wrinkle cream.
Now I knew right away that this isn't from someone that knows me. The postmark indicates it originated in Ontario, and the only "J" I know is here in Montreal, and if she sent it it wauld have said "J-A". She also would never do this. But the big thing is that I don't have any wrinkles!!! I am pushing 40, and am at an age where most of my friends have developed some 'character lines', but I have always looked young for my age, and I have no wrinkles unless I squint hard. So no way, no how, is this from someone that knows me!
This kind of personally targeted advertising is really common online of course, but I have never seen something like this! Do they think it looks more legit if it comes by snail mail instead of by email?
