Kwento ko lang nangyari sakin…(I just want to share something…)

I joined this forums in the internet. I joined their contest and won a couple of prizes. Then in on eof their contest, I was supposed to have won 100$ and a book. I won that prize on March 16, 2005. They informed me through private message that I won.

After a month I have to follow up the book that I won and I received it. But the prize money, I haven’t received. They promised that they sent it already; so it must have been the delivery problem. Then comes June, it hasn’t arrived and they are claiming that someone else received it according to Visa card, since it was a Gisa Gift Check that they sent.

Then they started claiming that they have to ask Visa to cancel the Gift Check. So I waited for months for this to get finished. Now comes August, they finally agreed to send me the money. Instead they sent it via Paypal and guess how much I received? I received 2000yen (20$). I asked how come they sent only 20$ and not 100$. Then they said it was a typo error in their part. But then how come they didn’t tell me from the start?!

Now, they have changed their forums and re-edited the posting of prize money to 10$ instead of 100$. Tsktsk. Now after months of letting me wait and run around in circles, they have finally dropped the bomb and told me that they will not fulfill their end of the bargain.

I think this is really unfair. I remember the case in America where one radio contestant winner was supposed to win a million but instead she won a millioin pieces of candies I think. Then they have to settle it at the court and she won. I wish I could do the same. I want to let the whole www now what SheUnlimited has done to me. If anyone knows of any venue for this, please let me know.

wow… just after a few minutes of sending this rant message…
and after sending a hate mail to them saying that “I hope their conscience hunts them…”
I got an email from them, she unlimited…

Would you believe they gave me the remaining 80$ balance?

That was a breach of contract. You could threaten to sue or report them to Better Business Bereau (BBB).

Never mind, you already got the remainder of the $$…I was just giving you my response when I saw your latest post.

Hello orangedays, I’m glad you got your rightful prize. I deleted the name and the link of the forum you mentioned; I think it’s better not to have their name and link here on our site. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the response.
By the way where is this BBB?

You can locate a BBB here (http://lookup.bbb.org/), or online (http://www.bbb.org/).
You can also find more info. about a company or its reliability at the BBB. (http://search.bbb.org/search.html) And there are some very informative consumer/business tips (http://www.bbb.org/alerts/tips.asp) on their site.

If the company or business is in good standing, it would have this: http://www.zappos.com/img/bbb.gif
