Re-reading my Xmas issue and found a "Purely Creative" scratchcard inside. This is a scam that can cost you time and money if you play it - see e.g.

Not spam I know - I realize editorial are not the people who would have arranged this but maybe someone could advise whoever did to avoid this outfit in future.

I suggested something similar because of a scratchcard scam included in an issue further back. It's down to the publishers.
