Firstly it is an obvious one (always read the small print), and one which I would not usually fall for... but, they got lucky. You scratch (which arrived in The Weekend TV guide, that arrives with a weekend news paper)the card. They tell you have won and that you must text to find out the details of what has been won and how to claim. Many texts need to be sent.It is a hefty fee for sending a few texts.The winnings just cover the cost of the texts and the stamp they request in order to send the so called winnings. It was about 2/3 months ago and I have still not received the funds.
It is a negligible sum. In oder the pursue it on the overpriced number would be throughing good money after bad and I suspect a complete waste of time and energy. The name of the compampany Purely Creative... an oxymoron. It really does not get much less creative than that.
I am not pursuing the claim but want the world to know about it (so others are alerted;at least something good can come out of it), especially as it arrives along with a respectable wrapper; the Weekend Papers.
