I really wanted to win the Stephen Colbert contest (sit under his desk while show is recorded). I did pay the money to enter but I used to work for a company who offered sweepstakes once in a while and Legal always said it was against the law to require people to donate money when they are trying to win a prize.
I appreciate that he's doing it for charity but why do these stars agree to them keeping 20% of donations?
I've tried to find out if this is actually legal but can't find anything and Omaze didnt answer my question when I contacted them. I won't be participating in any more offers under these circumstances.
Product or Service Mentioned: Omaze Donation.
Reason of review: questioning legality.
Preferred solution: I just want to find out if this is legal or not.
I didn't like: 20 percent is a large cut to take and is this even legal.
