Last week I wrote a blog post called: My Recommendation: STOP ENTERING regarding a legitimate sweepstakes website that wasn’t awarding their prizes in a timely manner, if at all. Fellow contestors began to flood me with other sites they also felt were not honoring their obligations as a sweepstakes hosts. I decided I should create a page called The Watch List to warn entrants letting them know about websites they should not spend their time on.
I heard from others regarding Wanna Win. I know the former President and it’s a legitimate site. Many posted they have never won from the site and do not know anyone who has. Wanna Win has many many members. Just because a site has poor odds of winning, doesn’t mean it’s not legitimate. It still has better odds than the lottery and many buy tickets every week. I am seeking sites that treat their members poorly by not sending prizes, ignoring emails, etc. Classic Heartland falls in the same group. One prize and many entrants.
What I am seeking from you now is; what other sites need to be investigated and/or be added to The Watch List?
