I got a fake winning email!
I checked my email and there was one from Moviebill with "You won!!" in the subject line. Of course I was excited to see what I won, but when I opened it, it said "You haven't won yet, but there's still time to enter", and it had a link to enter for a stupid poster. 😣

Just coming to post the exact same thing.

I replied to email as well saying that the email is terrible customer service, and could open Moviebill up to legal claims... if you wanted to go that far for a poster!!


Whoever thought that email up, needs to be better trained!

It'd be tempting to reply "You lost" (me as a customer).

I was about to post the same thing. Wrote them back an email stating that the email is in poor taste, and could be considered false advertising. I also told them that they were going to extreme to get someone to open their email.

I unsubscribed as well. When the little list of reasons popped up I checked "the emails are inappropriate" lol

I did and then unsubscribed. I got a personal "sorry for the mistake" email from Jeffrey after the generic "oops we made a mistake" email.
