An amazing offer

We got a postcard in the mail today:

We have identified you and you are now ON RECORD. We are happy to contact you directly at your residence to inform you that you have been confirmed to receive this notice for a Vacation Package. This offer is real and is no mistake. Please respond prompt so that we may process you.

AS SOON AS WE RECEIVE YOUR CALL, WE WILL PROCESS YOUR VALIDATION NUMBER AND TELL YOU ALL ABOUT YOUR 2 ROUNDTRIP AIRFARES TO ANYWHERE IN THE CONTINENTAL U.S.!

(all caps and emphasis are theirs)

Do people really fall for this stuff? That is both slimy and sad at the same time.
