View Full Version : How to know if it is for real?

How do you distinguish a true win from spam? I have a bad habit of using the empty feature on my spam box. Do I need to check all the spam?

I would look thru it some people have almost deleted wins that were in the spam box

Check them, some of us have found real wins mixed in with the spam!

Scan them before deleting. I have had a few come to my bulk mail folder.

If it asks for your social security number its a scam.
If it asks for you to send them money in order to enter the contest or to claim your prize, its a scam.

But check your spam box closely just incase...I'm sure legit wins accidently go there.

When you have some free time you may want to peruse this forum...


It will give you a very good idea as to what most spam "wins" look like.
