    tricked me, I was lied to :aargh4:

    Don't trust contests on this site as even if it takes 17 weeks of your time to participate and win it, you still won't get a prize at the end!!!

    What a joke...
    I hope they fix their mistakes of trying to trick members/scam members...
    And if they do I will be the first to say something positivek, but as of right now, I am told too bad so sad. I'm sure they may try and delete this post so that the rest of you guys dont find out about it.
    Terrible thing to do, just terrible..... :no:
    I would say I'm sorry, but get over it. If hodges didn't have authorization to run the contest then oh well. Should they have shut the thread down if he wasn't authorized to affiliate it with BBOS? Not really... Should a disclaimer be put up stating that BBOS is not sponsoring the contest and can't be held liable? Sure.

    I'm sorry you feel so scammed and such, but its just a forum contest.

    This was not a BBOS official contest, which is why it was placed in the off-topic forum and not in our official contest Forum. I'm sorry you have not received any winnings for this contest, but you are knocking on the wrong door as the team members that held the competition are responsible for any prizes/winnings and anything else associated with the contest. Those team members are no longer on the BBOS team so please contact them privately.
