    I just checked one of my email addresses today and realized I was the winner of the FREE WII drawing at XpBargains.com sponsored by Newegg.com. Since my chance to claim it was up in mid January, I now consider myself a colossal idiot for neglecting to check my friggin emails.
    They were persistant too; they sent me 4 emails.

    Did you win a Wii or win a chance to buy a Wii?

    It was indeed real, the emails were from a specific Newegg.com PR manager. He included his email which I will not post for obvious reasons. Additionally Newegg.com is a very respectable company and the email address was xxxxx@newegg.com.

    Oh also my brother and cousin both also entered the contest and neither of them received any emails as I confirmed earlier this evening.

    Oh yea? A bank that I don't even belong to keeps wanting me to update my personal bank account info. My fingers are so tired of typing it in.
    Send this to 10 people within 5 minutes and your wishes will come true and Bill Gates will send you $1,500. If you do not send it to 10 people you will explode!

    Won a Wii. Also if anyone here is actually familiar with XpBargains.com, they run a very tight watch over spam on their forums. And Newegg.com makes far too much money to bother scamming a poor college student.

    I welcome all the clever mocking yall can come up with. Non stop spam is the reason I missed the friggin email in the first place.

    Yeah, it seems as if it was legit. A lot of websites were having giveaway contests... 1up, EB, etc. If they had contacted you out of the blue then it's a scam, but he entered a contest.

    That sucks! Are you 18? If you aren't, then maybe they wouldn't have give you the wii anyways... and that would've been a lot worse.

    Ironic, isn't it? :ciappa:
    Well, you may have missed out on a $250 game console. So what, just think of those people that lost million $ lottery tickets or didn't play the one time their numbers came up. You'll get over this.

    Yeah im 23, and to the post above ^^, I know its just a game system which is why Im just ranting on a forum.
    BTW I already have a wii, but I've never won anything so thats the most frustrating part of all.

    I never trust e-mail offers for free prices, a simple e-mail could reveal a lot of information about your computer for hackers. You can never be too careful.
