The Watch List

Last week I wrote a blog post called: My Recommendation: STOP ENTERING regarding a legitimate sweepstakes website that wasn’t awarding their prizes in a timely manner, if at all.  Fellow contestors began to flood me with other sites they also felt were not honoring their obligations as a sweepstakes hosts.  I decided I should create a page called The Watch List to warn entrants letting them know about websites they should not spend their time on.

As per my blog post, the first one on the list is Today’s Draw.  I also added Penny Auctions Canada based on comments received.

I heard from others regarding Wanna Win.  I know the former President and it’s a legitimate site.  Many posted they have never won from the site and do not know anyone who has.  Wanna Win has many many members.  Just because a site has poor odds of winning, doesn’t mean it’s not legitimate.  It still has better odds than the lottery and many buy tickets every week.  I am seeking sites that treat their members poorly by not sending prizes, ignoring emails, etc.  Classic Heartland falls in the same group.  One prize and many entrants.

What I am seeking from you now is; what other sites need to be investigated and/or be added to The Watch List?
