Heads up, compers! In order to investigate a technical issue, we've had to move some of the older threads from Game Over into a new category called 'Game Over Archives'. It'll be comps from before 2017, so shouldn't have too much impact on your day-to-day Forum experience. Thanks for your patience!
Free car competition, reluctant to post on the main thread, could someone take a look?

Came across this on facebook, but I'm a little suspicious and reluctant to post it, can't see any problem with it though. The car is probably 2nd hand - says new tyres.
What I've found so far are their general terms https://stormcompetitions.co.uk/terms-and-conditions/

I'm with you - it looks suspicious. The site has a dodgy feel to me, but I may be wrong of course and that is only based on gut feeling having looked at so many competition sites over the years.
Edit - I had a look at their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stormcompetitions/ and it's made me more suspicious since they are also giving away cash prizes. I see two recent ones at £1k and £10k. They also gave away another mercedes recently, although the winner appears to have bought a ticket for that since it refers to him paying £25. They seem to have had 995 entries for that. If they charged £25 a ticket that would mean they earned almost £25k from ticket sales which would probably cover the price of the car if it's second hand.
Maybe they usually charge, to afford the prizes, and this time they aren't?
Maybe this free one is to draw people in and hope they'll stay for future paid comps? I'm still suspicious though.
