  • Monetary Loss: $2000
REceived a FATWIN scratch off for Planet Ford Dealership. Did the scratch off and my numbers matched for the Grand Prize of $100,00. To collect the prize I had to visit the dealership. When I got there to claim the prize, I was told inspite of what the promotion said, the matching numbers only entitiled me to enter my number in a kioske where the price was $2. FATWIN is basically running an illegal lottery. such scams are prohibited in more than 40 states. i encourage everyone to contact the FTC and their State Attorney General to stop the fraud and deceptive trade practice.

Scam and should be reported to State attorney

I got a scratch off game, I scratched it off and won 5000. To redeem you have to go to dealer or microsite who then tells you that you won a chance to win. Nothing on the flyer says that whatsoever. Like the other person described here, this is a total scam.

Total scam as it is made to look as if you win a certain amount from pull tabs. These are just examples even though the owners will say you win over the telephone.

Was not given prize shown on flyer that was supposed to

I received a flyer in the mail from Kunes Country Dealership in Sterling, Illinois. The flyer had 3 pull tab cards and a list of what the winnings were. After opening the tabs, according to the flyer I had won a $1000 Walmart card. Drove from Clinton, Iowa to Sterling to collect the winnings. I was counting on that $1000 Walmart card since I am on disability and was planning to buy food and household items - rejoicing in the fact that I would not have to go to food pantries for a while. When I arrived, I explained that I could not afford to get a vehicle, but that once I had my affairs in order I would and believing what the flyer said, I would go back to the dealership when financially able. After telling a salesman this, I was told that I didn't win the card. Put my information into a computer, had me press the play button and walked out with a $5 bill. It cost more than that just to get there. I even posted it on Facebook that I had won and told all 225 of my friends not to just throw those flyers away. I am now mortified, had to delete my post, and thanks to fatwin and the dealership, have no Easter dinner.

Nothing happened and nothing will because I am not stupid enough to fall for a ridiculous mailer scam. I am posting this for anyone that is unfamiliar with these scam tactics and had a gut feeling to check online to see if it is legit. It is not. Toss your "Bonus Slots Pull Snaps" directly in the garbage and move along with your life.

Fatwin fraudulent flyer

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Received a FATWIN pick-a-tab for Jim Marsh Chrysler Jeep Dealership. I won the $1000.00 cash. To collect the prize I had to visit the dealership with flyer and game piece in-hand to show what "I won." When I arrived I was told "regardless of what the promotion clearly states," the matching pictures only entitled me to load my game number in a kiosk for a spin to have the chance of winning any of the prizes.... FATWIN is running an illegal, deceptive, bait-n-switch promotional. I encourage everyone to submit their experience with Fatwin to stop the fraud and deceptive business practice.
