Saw an Ad for Contest to win $1000 on tmobile. Went to dailymobiledealz.com where it said. "THIS IS NOT A JOKE! CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE (1) $5, 000 PREPAID LOADABLE! Every Friday (10) Phones Are Selected! (Step 1 of 3) ISTHIS YOUR FIRST CARD?" I feel kind of stupid for going through this process as all it did was a scam to get me to sign up for an expensive pre-paid card.
The problem is that there was no more information on the sweepstake. In fact, there were no details on the sweepstake. Doing a little research, I see that Sweepstakes need to be registered in certain states and bonded in others. No records of any of that stuff.

After a little more research, I was able to trace ownership of the website to some guy named Ryan Wessels. Tried calling him and left messages. No response. Isn't it illegal to make up a fake contest to get people to sign up for prepaid cards they can't really afford?

Here is the info I was able to dig up:

Opened my phone and it went straight to the internet: This is not a joke, etc. as was explained above. Called Mr. Wessels from a burner and was hung up on. Imagine the number will be changed soon.
