Mail advertisements that look like emergency bills.

Just got another one of these fucking things sent to my house. It looked like an unpaid bill for my car so I opened it up, and it turned out to be a scare tactic to switch my insurance to some other spanish insurance company. Fuck these bills. A family member saw it and got scared thinking I was behind on my bills. Thank you so much asshole insurance companies! I hope you choke to death!

Insurance companies keep sending me advertisements that look like personal letters. I can tell the script font is not hand written.

Lately, I have been getting a lot of mail without return addresses, so I have to actually open it up before I throw it in my pile of junk mail.

It's crazy the lengths they'll go to just to make you read something. :thumbsup:

I did my taxes at Money Mart one year and I now receive mail adverts from them. Through the envelope window you can see a dollar amount on paper that looks like a check. After opening you realize it's just an advertisement for a loan that "you may qualify for".

If it almost tricks us half intelligent people, imagine when the dumb fucks open it?

Look at the corner with the postage. If it says standard, or std (lol) it's 99% junk and if it weren't good as delivered it gets recycled. Even the sender doesn't want it back. That is a tell tale junk sign before opening.

It's rare that something important comes standard and generally it will have written on it something like "Address service requested" which means it is important enough that the sender wants to know if it can't be delivered.
