I get emails stating I haven't yet entered the $10M giveaway (no. 1400). Each time I get the email to enter, I click to enter and always have to go through numerous parter sites offering various services / products. I went through this completely 2-3 days ago and signed up to get further information from online Universities. Since then I've been contacted over and over by them. The entry email stated I believe that I didn't have to purchase anything to enter, but encouraged signing up with at least one partner site (which I did). I also began to sign up with a partner site called SPARKLEHOROSCOPE but after entering my personal information and clicking through I came to a page which stated on the bottom that I would be billed $9.99 a month via my cell provider. I did not click to accept the services the site was providing, but am now getting emails from them. I don't know if I will be charged, but if I am there will be more complaints.
Today I get an email stating I'm not yet registered for Giveaway No. 1400, (which I should have been when I completed the entry process and signed up online University information!!) and to click on enter and then visit the partner site, Find Senior Care Living. That site did not give me any option to skip the site. It appeared I had to sign up, again, for something. I did sign up to get information (though asked that this partner site not actually contact me since I have no need for their services!).
PCH's online entry process is extremely confusing and misleading I believe. I really have no idea if I'm entered into the sweepstakes, but I know various partner sites now have my information and are calling and emailing me and it's ridiculous. They are supposed to be a trusted sweepstakes company, but I think they are trying to scam people who attempt to enter online, and give out personal information when it is not what the person entering wants.
