OMG Sweeps, Scam or Legit? What You Should Know
OMG Sweeps claims you can win $50,000. But is this a legitimate site that you can trust? Or is OMG Sweeps a scam that you are going to regret.
I came across this site the other day and was instantly suspicious of it. I have seen so many similar sweepstakes scams over the years that it is just instinct to be suspicious of these sites. So I did a little investigating and looked into this site to see if its actually legit, all of which I will be going over in this review.
OMG Sweeps Review
- Name: OMG Sweeps
- Website: omgsweeps.com
- Cost: Free to enter
- Recommended?: No, more on this
Upon entering this website you are bombarded with a chance to win $50,000. When I came across it I took a screenshot as you can see below… This is pretty much all there is to the site. There are no other offers, other sweepstakes to enter, or anything. This $50,000 drawing is all there is.
How It Works
To enter to win the prize all you have to do is enter your email address and agree to the terms and conditions by checking the box beneath it. You can also check the box to agree to receive emails from this place but I wouldn’t suggest that.
After entering your email and checking the boxes you will then click the “draw my number now” button. You will then be directed to another page and given an Encrypted Entry Number (EEN). This number will range from 00000001 – 75000000.
Whether you won or not will be displayed instantly. Apparently OMG Sweeps has chosen a lucky EEN number. And your chances of winning are 1 out of 75,000,000. So more than likely you lost just like me.
Some Red Flags
There are some red flags that I came across on this site that make me really wonder if its actually legitimate.
The fact that there is absolutely no information on this site is a major red flag. There is not “about us” page or anything. You don’t know anything about this place other than how they tell you that you can enter to win $50,000 which is pretty suspicious in of itself.
Another red flag on this site is their promotional material. When you enter to win and find out that you lose, you will see an advertisement beneath that for similar suspicious sites.
The site that was advertised to me was called Everyday Winner, and its the same type of deal… you enter your email and get a chance to win money. There is also absolutely no information about this site either. Here is a screenshot I took of this site.
And lastly, there is no contact info. You can’t contact this place if you have a problem or for any reason. This is very strange and definitely makes me think its a scam more than ever.
What I Think This Site Really Is
There is pretty much no doubt in my mind that this is a scam site. I don’t think it is possible to win the money that they claim you can. I don’t think they give out any money. If they were giving out $50,000 there would more information on them and people would be ranting and raving about this amazing opportunity all over the internet. But they aren’t.
I think that this is no more than a scam to get people to give them their email addresses. Email marketing is big these days and people can sell real email addresses for good money. If you can capture enough emails to make a big list in the 10’s of thousands then you can make some decent money from that. And this is exactly what I think OMG Sweeps is.
I think you will find that you will all of a sudden start getting a lot of promotional emails after you enter the sweeps on this site.
You just can’t trust this place. They provide no information about them whatsoever, you can’t contact them, there is no talk on social media about this place or anything. It just doesn’t add up.
If I were you I would absolutely not enter the sweepstakes on this site… unless of course you like getting a bunch of spam email.
If you are looking to make money online then what I can recommend to you is to take a peek at how I make money online. I make a living working online for myself and I enjoy what I do. I wrote a post (link below) on what it is that I do, how it all works, and how others can do the same.
