3d design contest makers book email? Answered

I received an email from robot saying I am getting a free book "Congratulations, Instructables.com wants to send you a 3D Design Contest: Makers Book! Congrats on being one of the 50 first people to enter the Chris Anderson 3D Design Contest"

The only contest I have entered is the "I can make it contest" and that was far from being 3D or punctual.

Is this an error because recently I asked for a post card?

I checked and this was a miss-click on our part. SOrry about that. Please ignore, that contest ended last year.

If you didn't get an automated reply immediately after sending in your email you may have typed the address incorrectly. I just checked the service@ inbox and there's no email from you about this.

Did you read the fine print before you signed up?  https://www.instructables.com/community/Instructables-Halloween-Postcards-2013/ You may be one of the 10 lucky people selected for the special gift pack with the Halloween postcard which is like hearing "Congratulations, you are in the Army now."

I think it is a mistake, the contest ended a year ago: https://www.instructables.com/contest/chrisanderson
