How to Recognize a Legitimate Sweepstakes Site
It’s important to know, when entering to win any sweepstakes, if the site is real and legitimate. There are many sites which are totally real and completely legit and those are the sites you’ll want to visit. Sweepstakes sites must follow rules which govern this industry to the letter of the law.
If you want to know if a site is legit, these are the things to be aware of:
• It’s completely free to enter, with no cost or obligation necessary – ever!
• Collecting your prize is also completely free of charge – no legal sweepstakes will every ask you to pay to collect your prize. If they do, they are a scam, and you should avoid them.
• If anyone asks for your bank account information, do not ever give it to them. A real sweepstakes site such as ours will never ask you for that information.
• A legit sweepstakes site has real winners and posts them for all to see. When determining the validity of a site, look for the Winners page.
• Real sweeps companies are easy to get in touch with. You should see a Contact Us page and a way to easily communicate if you have a question or concern.
• The sweeps rules should be clearly stated on the site. It should also state if you are eligible to play. Sweepstakes contests are governed by the laws of the country they are based in.
