Omaze is scam

I have entered for the Andrea Bocelli experience.Although they post that the winner will be announced around May 9,2019,there is no announcement yet.I have read similiar complaints in their instagram page as well but they delete these complaints immediately. I have been stupid enough to waste my money in this scam organization,please do not...

Transparency standards of Omaze are unacceptably low for company working with charity organizations. I was not able to find any financial reports or details about past sweepstakes. I would like to know how much they had raised and transferred to each charity after each...

Sketchy Scam

Last year they “raised” $100,000,000 for charity. According to their website that equates to: $666,000,000+ grossed $466,000,000+ spent on ads/prizes $100,000,000+ given to charity $100,000,000+ pocketed. I mean spent on running the lottery—I mean charity. Lord know how much more since then.

Omaze is a scam not because of the salty people who didn't win but because of the buisness model. THIS IS TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM THEIR FINEPRINT. Omaze donates, (NOT YOU, this is THEIR tax write off) 15 cents of every dollar to the actual charity. (15% PEOPLE) 70 cents is...

If you believe Omaze is scamming you, then contact the people/company they are representing! They dont take 20%. This is an example of a great business model. Stop hating.

I don’t believe that the chance of winning is equal for all people who enter, and that this company is a total scam. Case in point, The recent winner of the decked out sprinter van that was collecting money to go toward a rock climbing foundation, is himself a rock...

AND the person who won the Sprinter already owns a Sprinter van that has been renovated. He and his wife have an active Instagram with multiple posts highlighting his climbing adventures in said van, with hashtags that are exactly the same as the ones that Omaze is promoting.

Could it be complete coincidence, sure. Is it likely to be, no.

I donated more than $300 dollars and spent enough time on one giveaway that they said I had 47,549 entries into the sweepstakes! And still no email and no phone call. I have looked for youtube videos, twitter and instagram announcements of people who have won something, an experience or a car, obviously they'd be sharing their big win and somehow there is nothing! I want a way to guarantee its really people winning. Even a few times I messaged them on Instagram and email asking how many entries were there so far for the giveaway and every time they answered that that information was confidential or not allowed to be shared. It makes sense, so you can't calculate your odds of winning and want to pay in more, but also seems tricky.

Good Idea - Not Great Execution

3.4
Details
I think the premise behind this idea is awesome. The execution from the user perspective is not great, likely they do not have the expertise to keep a proper e-commerce site up and running. While I do not expect to win as others here believe. I should be able to see my entries, should get updates (great opportunity to sell me more) to make me feel good about spending my money, and should be able to get a response to my questions. As it stands I had to recreate my account (it was deleted) with no idea if all of my entries are gone (can not find them on my new account). Again, great idea...very likely legit to some degree. But execution needs help. Could be awesome, just is not.

Hey folks, I thank you all for the honest reviews of Omaze; it has this “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t” feel to it. Was thinking that an email or call to the charity purported to receive the set forth percentage of the funds raised might help...

I had my doubts when we were first contacted as possible winners, but everything was above board. The winners picture was posted.

Just a curious contestant having trouble finding answers

I am just wondering if there have ever been winners who entered alternatively and did not donate? On their winners page it says either the dollar amount specific winners donated or it says anonymous. So just wondering if free entries are even considered after all...

Omaze - Looks like total scam to me
I donated to support their After-School All-Stars charity they advertised. A month later closer to the auction date I got email saying that the auction is canceled without any explanations and I will be refunded. Now reading all reviews here I wonder if I even will. I definitely will follow up on the refund but would like to warn people not to donate or have any dealings with this Omaze. It feels now like a total scam to me./Users/galla/Desktop/Email copy 2019-04-28.png
