They just called and said I had won a gift and to press 1 so I did. They need to have credit card/debit card/pre-paid card to pay for shipping. I decided I had a pre-paid card with enough to pay for shipping so I decided to give it a try but after all was said and done, he said that is wasn't accepting my card and asked if I had a credit card to use. Of course my flag was up to begin with but after they wanted a different card then a bunch of flags went up. I'd say beware of this offer! I even offered to mail them an envelope and a postage stamp....They hung up on me.
I am sure there is no "Gift" except the gift you give them if you give out your credit card number.
