The scam claims participants will be charged $1, but many have reported being charged a lot more and have contacted their banks to dispute the charge. An online user said he called his credit card company after he was told the prize was unavailable after entering his credit card information and being constantly redirected to other prizes.
He was told by his credit card company that $19.95 was charged to his card, instead of the $1. So, he canceled the card and reported it as an unacceptable charge. His credit card company is investigating the unauthorised charge.
