Default United States prescription discount card...scam?

Today I got this by mail.
Too good to true... Further googling just confirmed this.

The mail was delivered by USPS..with just mailing code(seen it for the first time)

What is the story in this? Sounds like scam...

Further googling confirmed what? That you got something in the mail? Scratching my head that something is confirmed then you end with what seems like an opinion. Link perhaps? Seems like an interesting thread idea.

Clue: if your mail doesn't even have your name on it, then you know where to file it.

I also received them. What are they, and where did they come from? I'd also like to know if they are legit or toss them.

You people are driving me crazy.

If it's this and looks like this then I'd stay away because they are going out of their way to fool you:

One of my rules is to stay away from most businesses named "United States" something or other. They are usually trying to make you think they are involved with the federal government and are therefore legit.

As much as people should honestly know better with crap like this, I similarly can't believe there is no consumer protection legislation in place to prevent such obviously deceptive marketing practices. I bet if the company was purporting to be Coke, Apple, Exxon etc this type of marketing campaign wouldn't have gone past Week 1.

The sheer number of people who appear to have questions about this tells me 1/. the marketer has spent a lot of time and money in their campaign 2/. the literature being peddled is intentionally deceptive.
