[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Deception by online company

A while ago I registered with an Internet shopping mall after receiving e-mail that they would send me a lottery ticket if I joined their site.
The lottery ticket did not come by e-mail as promised. A couple of days later, I received an e-mail that I was the third runner up in the lottery. But the company said the e-mail message had been sent in error and promised I would receive a lottery ticket. More days passed, but no ticket.
I was very displeased, not because I did not receive the lottery ticket, but because of the company's deceptive way of obtaining customers.
These kinds of companies should stop harassing people with their dirty marketing tactics. They are harming their own reputation -- and damaging other trustworthy firms.
