Snuggie Rebate Check Scam

The Better Business Bureau of Eastern North Carolina is warning people about scam that involves unexpected checks in the mail.
The BBB says it's logged about 3,300 complaints in the past year and a half against the company Affinion. However, the bureau says Affinion group operates under more than 70 different names. Three names out there now include Great Fun, AutoVantage Enhanced and Trilegiant.

Rebate checks are showing up at the homes of people who have bought popular products on TV, including the Snuggie, and the Aqua Globe Plant Watering Bulbs. The Better Business Bureau says the rebate check for $8.95 is a real check, but cashing it makes you a member of a buying club with annual fees of up to $150.
