yea...they/Sue Madden are notorious for not being legit with what they are claiming in the email.
If you go back far enough, I know there are posts in this forum about them/her...but haven't seen any in a year or so.

Yeah I did my research here after I got the email. Thought I would post a warning incase anyone else received the same email.

I got the same email today. Knew it was spam because I ALWAYS use my given name on sweeps and this email used my nickname.

I received one today. I hadn't received one in a few years! This is a big phishing scam.

Thank you
I just recieved one of the emails today. I had just entered a contest at Disney, but I knew that the contest wasn't over yet. So I Googled travel getaaways, and thanks to this forum, my suspicions were confirmed. Thank you very much.
