Bogus safety recall!!!!

Ok guys, I got a letter in the ole snail mail yesterday with a recall notice stamped on it.
After opening and reading it I am ticked off!
It simply said to bring my vehicle to a particular dealer to preform a "Ford safety recall".
But oh wait....While its there, we can perform a basic checkup for a cool$29.99, yada yada yada....
I have received REAL recall notices in the past and they generally have the vehicle's vin and a recall number.
This devious advertizing campaign really erks me to no avail. That is like entrapment and false advertizing, better wording escapes me at the moment.

Please scan and post the notification, if you can, or take a pic with a smartphone. Block out your name and address.

Is there a specific location to take your vehicle stated in the letter?

This is against Ford's corporate advertising policy, likely against NHTSA standards, and you NEED to forward this to the Ford corporate offices.
