Has anybody won from The Beat?
Has anybody won from The Beat website? They give away great prizes but it's a website that plays music. It's not selling anything and it's nonprofit so I'm not sure how it makes money to giveaway these prizes. I'm skeptical about it and haven't entered it regularly.

It is also worthwhile to note that Kaspersky has recently begun rating the site as unsafe.

I've wondered that myself. The prizes are too high-valued for a small site like that. It reminds me of that radio station site that had great prizes day after day. Country something in the name. It was finally banned from this site.

Exclamation
I just noticed...if you scroll down their contest page, they have a long list of winners. I don't know if it is real or not...but it's there.

Classic Heartland lol


I tried and never won.


For a short while there was actually a sign on a building downtown here that had that, I think it was a syndicated radio station?

Yes, that's the one. I think what happened is that it was a real radio station website at one point, but got taken over by a con when the domain name expired. That's just my theory.
