GREAT minds think alike ladies... Sometimes we are too kind and trusting even though our little voice is screaming NO, NO, not kosher!!! Where is this woman anyway, she came, got people to follow her and puff, she was gone!!!Remember the name, Beverly Malone...

Anne, If I lived in the US, I may have undertaken something..but it just isn't worth it from over here.

Personally I would NEVER enter a contest where my work has to be sent in or a fee paid, before making sure it's legit. Unfortunately when someone slips into a group where everyone does trust one another it is sad and unavoidable. I suppose we just have to do our best and hope the contests we enter aren't scams...

I'm a new member and just spotted your question. I absolutely love entering contests. I'm always up for the challenge. However, I try very hard to stay away from entry fees. I don't think it increases your chances of winning; I think it just puts money into the pockets of the contest host. Their prizes are not going to be anywhere near the amount of money they collect from participants. I have only entered one or two paying contests and only because the topic grabbed me.

To me the worst scam is when they say you've won and find out all you won was a chance to enter yet another contest. What's up with that? Sounds a lot like that bait and switch PCH...

Long ago, I entered no fee contests. Won a few poetry type.
But haven't had time to do that lately. Don't think if there
was a fee, I would've entered.
