I don't normally take part in contests. Even when it involves skills, there is always an element of chance or luck, if you want to call it that, especially with the large number of participants these contests attract.
Recently however, I did take part in a contest. As 'luck' would have it, although I didn't win any big prizes, I did qualify for a consolation prize.
But guess what? To collect my winnings I would have to commit to spending up to RM3,000 over a 12 month period.
Sounds to me like the 'Scratch & Win' scam we hear complaints about. What do you think?
