Promo Direct Ltd

Promo Direct Ltd

a gold letter slot with mail sticking through it on a white background Promo Direct Ltd, ISS and B&N are masters of the postal scam.

Over the years, they have sent out dozens and dozens of letters under different names – all aimed at getting you to pay good money for useless “get rich quick” schemes and methods, and/or dodgy “esoteric products”.

Would you knowingly spend your hard-earned cash on “Professor Gerrico’s Secret Method for Getting Rich”, “protective bracelet and negative vibe destroyer”, or the “Mega-Max” gambling system?

Of course you wouldn’t and Promo Direct know it.

In order to get you to hand over your cash, they send out colourful letters claiming you have been chosen or are a guaranteed winning recipient of tens of thousands of dollars.

Some letters even claim to come from psychics or self-made millionaires.

The only problem is that you haven’t actually won anything yet.

Promo Direct use the scammers favourite competition method: a pre-draw competition. The winners are pre-selected (from a mailing list) prior to the mail-out and need to respond to win the money. Legitimate competitions are not run this way!!!

But you are a “winner” of a discount voucher for some useless “get-rich-quick” method or esoteric product. One letter even offered a discount on a telepathic appointment. We’d hardly call that a prize!!

The fine print clearly states that the letters do not contain a firm offer and are an “advertising” document to promote the sale of a certain product.

One of the keys to identifying a Promo Direct scam (apart from reading the fine print) is their connection to ISS (Intermail System Services) and more recently B&N.

The letters request that payment be made to their association either ISS or B&N, which is the name that appears on the return address envelope. The current return addresses are from Austria, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Italy but there maybe more.
