Ellen Special??
I received this email. It looks legit but I thought I read where if you won from Ellen you received a call. The form to return looks legit and no SSN required. What do you guys think?

Hi!

PLEASE EMAIL THISFORM BACK TO ME BY 6pm (PST) on Monday, May 25th, 2020.

I have never won from them...

I just think it's strange that they stress no SSN .. and "if you are concerned this is a scam"

No SSN needed because the value of the prize is less than $600.

Things may be different for large prizes vs small prizes for the show.. ie.. a phone call if it's a large prize.

It's legit! I recently won almost $2000 worth of prizes from Ellen; received an email similar to yours and no phone call. I have since received all the prizes! Congratulations on a great win!

Lately there have been giveaways with hundreds of winners and I have seen where they have all been getting the winning notice via email. Plus, doing a search on Corey Morris I found that they do work for the Ellen show.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Thanks for all the input. I guess it had been so long since I won anything that I was skeptical. LOL
