Ridgid: You are certainly correct and doing the right thing. I read a lengthy article last week about such scams. My daughter never enters anything that involves sending money or any personal data, like social security number, etc. (Unless she wins cash, and then you have to!) Mostly she wins merchandise but took a first class trip to Orlando with the kids courtesy of Kodak a few years ago. She had to pay a sales tax and report it on her income tax, on the estimated value (full price, of course), of about $6,000!
