    Seems this may be a scam or just a not very well run comp.
    People are winning prizes but then being told they have cheated to get the winning page come up as the prize hasn't 'been released yet'

    Check out Kalixa fb page and you'll see what people have been saying and the messages they have been getting from Kalixa.
  • Having looked at the comments I would be very wary of entering this still. Seems the standard response is the implication that anyone who has won has been winning is cheating and altering the URL

    Also they are saying no prizes have been put into the pot yet which means everyone who has done it has been wasting time as there was nothing to play for

  • Closed now and seem to still be implying everyone saying they won are cheats

    Sorry for the delay in responding everyone. Due to the seriousness of some of the posts we have had to engage our legal team to investigate whether people are making fraudulent claims. Kalixa is proud to be an FCA regulated business and in turn we take the allegations that have been made against us very seriously indeed. We devised the Pass the Passport game as a way to help our customers get the most out of their Summer and are delighted that, so far, over 3000 people have played the game with 30 people winning prizes so far.

    Unfortunately it has been bought to our attention that one Facebook user has illegally compromised the game resulting in that person accessing illegitimate prize win pages. The same user has since shared and posted links (to the higher value prizes) on some internet forums / blogs resulting in a number of users bypassing the actual game and submitting a claim using one of these traceable links. To make sure the game remained fair for everyone who has played using the Facebook App we made the decision that we would only be rewarding winners who have played the game as intended and described in the T&Cs and not from the links that have been made public. To clarify - there were. Any future allegations that relate to the above will be dealt with appropriately.

    We are obviously very disappointed that the App was able to be compromised in the first place and we are taking this very seriously with our game delivery partner. To avoid any further reputational damage we have made the difficult decision to cancel this promotion and the game will be being taken down. We are able to easily identify the winners who have played the game via the App as per the T&Cs so please rest assured that all genuine prizes won to date are being awarded and received. The remaining prizes that have not yet been won will all be donated to charity.

    bubba2 it isn't your fault. We all post comps with the best of intentions and can't be held responsible if they are "dodgy". Please don't feel guilty.

    Latest message is :

    Hey everyone. We're trying to deal with the Pass the Passport comments and messages coming in as quickly as possible. We're in touch with the ASA who are aware of the promotion. If you believe that you have genuinely won a prize please send us an email, with your personal details, the link or screenshot to [email protected] before 15:00 on Saturday 2nd August and we will investigate this for you. In the meantime we really appreciate your patience.
