Omaze - Scam?

2.0
Details
Only when I look up the details of eligibility do I discover that one has to be a resident of the UK to win - hope the heart foundation appreciates my donation (after the 20% deduction)!

Hi! You can win if you are not resident in the UK but you need to enter via an international version of the website. I’m in Spain and it automatically redirects me because of my location Good luck

Update by user Apr 09

I was tricked into the donation being made 500. It was suppose to be ONE 25$ donation not 525.

I would like full refund immediately. This is fraudulent advertising and the robot-like site stole my money!

They have an utterly dysfunctional website!! I have properly signed-in.

But their "search" engine and their, "Hang tight... we're fetching more experiences for you!", does not work/load. If have tried many times over many days, and neither of these two functions yield any results.

And, to add insult to injury, I can't even send them a message using their own website. Terrible.

Earlier today,3rd October 2019, I donated $10 to enter a competition trying to do the free entry. After realising what I had done I contacted Omaze and told my story. Withing the hour I had a response telling me how to enter for free and that my money will be refunded within 3-5 days. My money is already reflected back in my account not more than 20 minutes after receiving the email response. Anna from Omaze, thank you!

Omaze is duping participants worldwide by promising unbiased selection of winner, while winners are mainly based out of the US - most likely fake profiles created by the firm.

I fully agree with you. I am getting regularly the list of winners and from 4-5 lists that I received so far, I see that 99% are from the US.

There is always 1-2 winner from Canada ( what a coincidence, always someone from Canada and always just 1-2) and one from the UK.

I agree with other opinion that the winner profiles from the US are fake or they only draw a winner from the pool of US applicants and there is no chance of winning for people from other countries ( non English speaking) like me. I will never participate anymore.

Omaze - I didn't win the grand prize, but I won one of the 23 pairs of fresh Prince air jordans
I entered for over a year before i ever won anything, but i did win a pair of the limited edition fresh prince air jordans. They emailed me to confirm my information (name and mailing address) and i got them about 3 weeks later. I was thrilled. The issue with them being a "scam" because "no one ever wins" is based on people personally not winning. But its like the lottery, millions enter, only a few will win. No one ever calls that a scam. But ive never won big on a lottery. And i donated $10 to the cause to win these.

Thank you for sharing this :) How long did they give you to reply to the email? My concern is that they don't ask for a phone number and what if the email goes to spam or you don't respond in time? Can you post a screenshot of the email, with your info masked of course?

After research I found that only 15% of the money raised by Omaze actually gets to the charity involved. Considering Charities also take “administration fees” it’s probably very safe to say very little if any money actually goes towards the cause. Appears to be mostly...

I researxhed them thoroughly. Dubious practices to say the least.

They feed on people's hopes to get something the could not otherwise afford. Basically a lottery without accountability.

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.

Omaze - Donated and waited, Now I see it is fake

2.0
Details
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.
