Claims I won a $1,000 Target gift card and wants \"winner\" to type in a number provided at TargetWinner.com.

The legitimate store contests off receipts will call winners and/or email them and as with all genuine contests, papers will be mailed/emailed to sign if the prize is over a certain amount (for tax purposes and to verify winner\'s name/address, etc.) and will be required to be faxed/mailed back to contest originator within a set period of time. I know this because I have won a number of real contests. I suspect my husband -- who is fairly new to using computers -- is picking up viruses on his computer since this scam contest popped up on our Internet provider box.

I do enter these store receipt contests every so often and if I ever actually win, I will post the procedure involved to claim the real prize.
