    Help! Remington Rebate?? What is this?

    My father just received a 'rebate' from Remington Firearms for $32. The letter thanked him for his recent purchase. Also enclosed was a list of Remington specials.
    My father has not bought a Remington his whole life. He bought a Glock 5 years ago and a Ruger .22 about 7 years ago. Thats it.
    I thought it might be an advertisement to entice you to get a Remington but it really appears that this is a real rebate.

    My first thought was to check his identity because somebody might have used his SS to buy a Remington. (also needing to use his name and address to make everything seem real, hence the rebate being sent to him at home. )
    Can you call the ATF or somebody and check what firearms are registered to your name/SS?

    Thanks for the help if anybody has heard of anything like this.

    -Ian

    I would suggest pulling all three credit reports in addition to whatever other steps you take to help him. Review these for anything that he doesn't recognize.

    I bought a remington 870 shotgun before Christmas and there was a rebate available. It was on some guns and I believe some ammunition.
    A social security number was not needed for the rebate, only name address, receipt and I think a signature stating that it was legal for you to own the item you bought.
    Or maybe he bought you a gift?

    If it helps.

    Also, my father-in-law has in the past "shared the love" with some rebates. If he bought enough and could not use them all, he would submit a rebate for me and his daughter or his sons. We got to keep the check.

    If the credit reports check out, I'd cash the check pronto.

    It was a rebate, not a check, right? Don't we all get these all the time, but you won't get any money until you make a purchase. The Thanks for the recent purchase doesn't mean anything.
    I got a $50 rebate on a 700 I bought. I filled out the rebate form, and the serial number on the gun and maybe a couple of more things, and a few weeks later I got the check.
