    I just got an email from Diane Lynham at Smooth telling me I had won flights to Singapore and Manchester Airport would be in touch.

    Email looks pretty genuine.

    The only thing is, I have been an active comper for about a year, and certainly don't remember an off the cuff entry at any point recently (it's possible I guess)

    There is a comp in Game Over for this prize, but I haven't ticked it (though it was around the time I was last active). Also a year seems a very long time to get around to awarding a prize!

    Guess I'll get in touch with Diane for further info *fingers crossed*

    Weird one. I've emailed to ask when/where this comp is from anyway.

    I just did a quick search and couldn't find but often they delete comps after they are over to stop entries still pouring in.

    well done x

    Is it possible you won this comp?

    It only ended 9 days ago. I know it's a trip to Houston, but the flights are with Singapore Airlines from Manchester Airport. Perhaps just a bit of a mix up with the wording in the winning email or crossed wires between Diane and a colleague?

    Sorry, thought you meant you had been an active comper for the last year (and the "off the cuff entry" was referring to a comp not listed on MSE, rather than that you hadn't been entering comps at all), starting around this time last year, hence the possibility of the comp from Oct 2015, so I went looking for comps entered more recently and found the Houston one Shame, because it looked like a great trip! Fingers crossed it's something else fab

    Nope.

    I've emailed the lady twice, but she hasn't responded. I have also yet to recieve contact from Manchester Airport either.

    I may email further up the chain at Smooth if nothing materialises soon.

    All very strange.
