    You could send them a "nastygram"

    via registered mail. After looking at the site, my gut reaction is to say your were scammed.

    Their first page is full of typos and grammatical errors.

    I'm pretty sure that we did get scammed. We had won other contests of theirs and had a very hard time getting payment, but this time, I don't think we're going to see the money. That's a thought about the 'nastygram,' but people like that don't care. Thanks much for your reply.

    Regards, Suzan

    Suzan,

    Sorry to hear that you possibly got scammed.
    My only advice would be to not easily trust online contests until you talk to other people about the place (like here). There are so many scams out there that you have to be very careful, but there are also real contests out there. Ask around.

    I am very cautious of contests online myself.

    Good luck to you!

    Possible payment

    I just heard from her and she said she was out-of-town and would pay my husband when she returns. We'll wait and see. Wish us luck!

    warm regards, susie

    Re: Possible payment

    Thanks much for your kindness, April. It means quite a lot to me. We heard from her this morning, so we're hoping she'll keep her word this time. She said she'll pay my husband on 7/20.

    Hope all is well,
    warm regards, susie

    hi susie!

    Hi Susie!

    I'm anxious to hear whether she sent you the payment as well-- after all that you've been through with this issue, I really hope she has sent it to you!

    Sites went down late 2005. Pieces of her geocities pages are still around, but they look inactive since 2004.
