    Is this a trick? You send a website address for a chance to win a Nikon Coolpix L-19. I have tried several times and where do you register? This is false advertising and you should be accountable. Disgusting!!! Do not adverstise if you are not offering.

    On several occasions I've received invitations to "enter a secret vault" where there are $30, 000 waiting to be won on the monthly draw. I have never found this site and enquiries to the customer support line have fared no better.

    I also receive "find the errors" competitions, where all the previous winners show the same faces on the accompanying material. Do these lucky stiffs win every month?

    Why don't you have anything in your web page about the draw for the cameras. This is a very low jesture. You should be suied.

    I too, received the card to enter at www.rd.ca./nikon with my subscription. They urge you to hurry when entering b/c the draw closes May 31st, 2009.
    First, I'd think they'd have to post the contest b4 closing it. Where is this so called contest?
    Google or Yahoo are unable to find it.
    This is not the first contest that Reader's Digest has sent out with the book urging you to enter and then 'forgetting' to post the site online.

    -=I was really disappointed that the only entry I could find was your complaints location or Our Canada Photo contest. I think that Readers Digest better get their act together. I know I won't enter any more of their contests as I am tired of having to buy something to enter.

    this is more then disapointing, my parents sent me a subscription this year (as well as other members in our family) and I'm sure that this is a scam focused on that volnerable group (our elders). I will call them and let them know that I am unhappy with the Readers Digest mode of advertising. Thank you "complaints board" for giving me the opportunity to see that others are also feeling scammed!!!

    I have to agree with the above comments, it is pretty tacky and not what I would expect from this venerable publication that has been coming to our house as long as I can remember.

    I think what we would like is some explanation from RD, we know they put their contests in the hands of Contest Companies, does Readers Digest not care that their reputation is at stake here?

    Lets hear from your RD and quickly. Stan Roszell

    HEY GUYS, THIS IS GREAT, IT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THESE PEOPLE AND THE WORST THING IS OUR GOV'T ALLOW THESE, MOSTLY AMERICAN AND MANY LIKE THEM TO OPERATE IN A FRAUDULENT MATTER BUT WILL DO NOTHING!! I CALLED BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, AB SPECIAL FRAUD DEPT. AND FINALLY THE RCMP WHO TOLD ME THEY DEFINTELY ARE FRAUDULENT BUT THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS GET A LAWYER AND SUE THEM IN CIVIL COURT AS IT'S NOT CONSIDERED A CRIMINAL MATTER!! MY HUSBAND SPENT OVER $10, 000.00 TRYING TO WIN THE CONTESTS SO DON'T FEEL BAD YOU HAVE FRIENDS WHO UNDERSTAND & CARE, ME FOR ONE. REGARDS JOANNE NADON

    Reader Digest is a complelty honest and above board organiozation responsible for millions of dollars in charuy work and support of those in need.To slam them simply because you cannot get intio a web site-which sounds like a technical problem, not a "scam"

    What did they scam?

    I, being Canadian had no problem, ntering the site;the contest is only for Canadians residents who are also subscribers.

    I entered www.rd.ca/nikon and am directed to https://secure.readersdigest.ca/nikon_bh_may09/login.php where I entered my access code and was confirmed as entered in the contest.
    Yes they tried to sell me a sunscribtion to another magazine-but hardluy call that a scam
