I am home sick today, having lost my voice to a nasty cough. It is the 28th, 3 days after Christmas, and today mail delivery has resumed.
In the mail, there arrived:
- three late Xmas cards
- voter registration x2
- tax package x2
- mystery envelope
"Mystery envelope?" you think to yourself, scratching your head. I too am left scratching my head. For this mystery, the business-sized envelope has no return address and is labelled with unfamiliar writing. Inside, there is a page cut from a newspaper called "Daily News" from Thursday, December 1, 2005. It contains a full-page ad for a product called "Immuderm". On the opposite side there are stock listings.
My name (sorry, I covered up my address for internet-safety's sake).
Handwriting on the article that was sent.
The cancelled stamp.
The entire article.
So the questions remains: Who is "J"? Why did they send me this article? How do they know me?
- This person somehow got my address (including unit #), but messed up on the postal code (switching the "J" for a "G").
- The stamp was cancelled just east of downtown Toronto, meaning that the letter was probably dropped off in a mail box or a post office in that area.
- This person used my middle initial "R" -- I haven't insisted on using my middle initial for a number of years.
- The date on the paper is Dec 1, but the cancelled stamp shows Dec 22. So the person kept the article for 2 to 3 weeks before sending it off to me.
- This person writes in all upper-case letters.
I will probably never know who sent this.
(And really, as if I'm going to spend $100+ for a product endorsed by some unknown person!)
UPDATE! (Dec 28/05 at 20:47)
Well, I have solved it. It's nothing but a scam.
Tonight in my mail there was an unmarked envelope with just my name and address on it. I opened it up to find a newspaper clipping and handwritten on the top was "Sherri, it works".
The article was about a product called immuderm and how it is an amazing anti wrinkle cream. It was originally developed to heal diabetic scarring of some kind and found to work wonders to renew skin.
For anyone who wants to check it out go to www.immuderm.com.
I honestly am totally clueless who sent this to me and am not sure whether to be insulted or thankful lol.
Has anyone ever heard of this immuderm stuff and if so I would love to know if it really works.
So it's nothing more but a marketing technique. Phew! I don't have a strange stalker after all!
