I like the Mrs part How Motherly..
and the Letter signed by a Promotion Manager, not someone in accounting, like maybe the controller?
The Grammer in this Letter Is Horrible. (mine too)
Don't even call the Number this smells bad, you will be ripper off, by the way I never entered a sweepstakes in Canada or anywhere else
