Continental Promotional Group SWEEPSTAKES RIP-OFF Tempe, Arizona

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

In December 2005, I was  sent a letter from Continental Promotion Group that I had won a sweepstakes giveaway, sponsored by GE Sealants, in the amount of $10,000. I had 7 days to return their paperwork to claim my winnings. I cautiously returned it.  Near the end of December2005, I was  contacted by GE in Texas that they would be sending me a check. After several phone calls from GE Executives, I finally received the check in January 2006.  When I  was getting ready to file my income tax the next year, I received a 1099 from Continental Promotional Group, and a 1099 from GE Sealant,(they issued the check).I contacted Continental Promotional Group, and asked them to please send me a corrected 1099. Because it looked as though I received $20,000. After several calls to them they finally sent me a new 1099, but without any corrections! I called GE several times, and sent them several emails.  They never responded. I was audited by the State. They won't believe I only received $10,000. I have a long drawn out hearing in April. Continental Promotion Group scammed me. They wrote off $10,000, that they never paid. This sweepstakes was more trouble than it was worth. BEWARE.
