Is OMG Sweeps a Scam? My Take On It

OMG Sweeps scamIf you are looking to enter OMG Sweeps sweepstakes drawing you might want to think again. Why do I say this? Is OMG Sweeps a scam or something?

Well I did a little searching around and from what I can tell this places is more than likely a scam. I would avoid it if I were you because nothing good will come from it and I’ll go over why.

What Is OMG Sweeps?

OMG Sweeps is a sweepstakes drawing website that just about no one has ever heard of. I had never heard of them until one day I came across them online. The site caught my eye right away because it said that I could enter for a chance to win $50,000.

They tell you that all you have to do is enter your email address and you will be automatically entered into the drawing, which will happen instantly.

How It Works

After doing a little bit of digging around and reading their Terms of Service and some other pages, I was able to find how they claim it works (emphasis on “claim”).

Apparently when you enter your email and click “Dray My Number Now!” you are automatically given a random number between 1 and 75,000,000. This is called an Encrypted Entry Number (EEN). And apparently they have already chosen the lucky number that is going to win the $50,000. So if the number that you get matches that number then you win.

But of course you probably aren’t going to win because your chances are 1 in 75 million and because I am very suspicious that this site is even legitimate in the first place.

Why I Don’t Trust This Place

The reason I don’t trust this place is because there is no information on them. I did some searching around on Google and on the website and failed to find any information about the company.

Doesn’t it seem strange that a company that is giving out $50,000 to lucky people who enter to win for free isn’t receiving praises all over the internet? There would be people at the very least talking about them on social media sites. But there isn’t and this really raises my suspicion.

On top of that they have no “About Us” page and no way to get in contact with them. There is no email given that you can contact them, no phone number, no nothing.

Any legitimate company that is giving away massive amounts of money is going to tell a little about themselves and provide a way to get in contact. That is just how it works.

Another Red Flag

Another red flag that I came across that I found strange is that after I entered my email and was given a number that didn’t win anything, there was an advertisement for another sweepstakes website called Everyday Winner. I clicked on this site and it was the same story. No information whatsoever that I could find on this place.

What I Think This Place Is

My guess is that this site is set up just to gather people’s email addresses. They use clickbate type tactics to lure you into entering your email by telling you that you can win 50 grand but really there is no money to be made. They just want your email and are tricking you into getting it.

Email lists are worth big money when it comes to online marketing and there are lots of similar scams like this that trick people into entering their emails. What is probably going to happen if you do end up entering your email is you will all of a sudden get a lot of spam emails from giving your email to this place.

Conclusion, Is OMG Sweeps Worth Entering?

I am never going to tell anyone what they should or should not do. All I do is give my opinion and advice. My advice is to stay far far away from this place.

Its not the end of the world if you do sign up. As I said, you will just get spam emails at the most. But its not worth it.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is a scam. I have reviewed hundreds of scams over the years and this has many common characteristics of one. What I see with it just doesn’t add up to it being legit. And I’m sure you probably were already thinking the same thing because you clicked on this post that I wrote in the first place.

Anyway… that is it for my rant on OMG Sweeps. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns don’t hesitate to leave them below in the comment section and I’ll bet back to you soon 🙂
