Just it a scam?
Hi yall.

I've been looking over the site trying to find out if the sweepstakes i just "won" is legit and didn't realize I was walking into a whole different world of FREE STUFF! This site is awesome and there are many many helpful members and tons of useful info.

I am still uncertain however if my winning is ligit.
I have supposedly won a trip I applied for on Universals website. Could anyone look at the following and let me know if this is a legit thing and what the heck "always on sweepstakes" is.

Thanks and I really enjoy the site. See below details:

Congratulations! You have been selected to receive a prize by registering in the The Always On Sweepstakes, administered by ePrize.

You have won a trip for four (4) to Universal Studios Florida & Islands of Adventure theme parks. Please see the attached Official Rules for further prize details and eligibility requirements. This prize has an approximate retail value of $3,500.

Four affidavits are in the attachment of this email. The first affidavit is the winnerís affidavit, named the Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release. It must be completed by you, the prize winner.

The three people who will be traveling with you must complete the second affidavit named the Travel Companion Affidavit of Liability & Publicity Release. If any of the travel companions are under 18 years of age or older, they must be the child of the winner, per the official rules. In this instance, the parent or guardian should complete and notarize the third affidavit named the ďUnder 18Ē affidavit for his/her child.

Please return the original completed copies, signed and notarized, within ten (10) days of the date of this win email notification. If you do not return the affidavits within this timeframe, another winner will be selected. You can find the mailing address at the top of the winnerís affidavit.

You will be contacted regarding the fulfillment of your trip.
