    There seems to be quite a few pages/people involved in these fake comps and fake reviews...

    Make your own Pot Noodles using a flower pot, sawdust and some old shoe laces. Pour in boiling water, stir then allow to stand for two minutes before taking one mouthful, and throwing away. Just like the real thing!

    I don't believe for a second that the high ticket comps are genuine - massive national magazines rarely shell out for their own prizes, they're usually sponsored/product promos, yet this free magazine in Yorkshire gives away thousands in prizes, but can't update its own website, has no articles of it's own, just shares other pages/links/publications on social pages - I don't get how anyone can think they're genuine giveaways tbh.

    Yes, I see where you're coming from - as I said on some other thread about them, I think the local business ones are genuine, or mostly are (not convinced about the 5k of carpets), but the holiday, ipad, iphone and the like - not a chance.

    I'm not a million miles away from where they say they are based and I don't believe I have heard of them. There are a lot of free magazines in this area and I wonder how they came to label themselves "The biggest free lifestyle magazine in the UK."
