Let's make sure you're not caught off guard by this.

A new postcard scam is making the rounds in Minnesota.  The Better Business Bureau says if you receive a postcard alerting you to an unclaimed reward of $100 in gift savings from Target or Walmart, report it to the post office.  The postcard asks the victim to call a toll-free number and requests a one-time activation fee of $3.95, payable by credit card.
