These companies, who ARE NOT legal entities in the state of Missouri, are targeting senior citizens for their scam. They claim to be having a contest for which you play 3 games in each round at $5.00 each. Once you have submitted the first three, they will mail you 5-6 DIFFERENT games to play per day (at $5.00 each). They claim that each game can win you $7,000.00, $14,000, or $21,000.00.

It will cost you $45.00 PER GAME for the first round (they forgot to tell you anbout the tiebreaker handling charges) plus at least at 2 laterpoints in each contest, you will be given the opportunity to compete at $10-$30 per game. The also state that there is a fee to compete of $225.00. Did you get your calculator out yet?

81% of contestants will get to submit additional money for the first tiebreaker; but only 24% will get to play for the second; less than 2% are expected to submit scores high enough to even play the 3rd and fourth tiebreakers. And you thought you were done adding. Here is a helpful tip for all of your readers who receive these 5-6 mailings per day EVERYDAY! Write the word "REFUSED" on the envelope and give it right back to the mailman.
