    Is this legit?? 8th Mar 18 at 8:53 PM
    Hi all,

    i received a letter today from "National Competition and Survey Entrants Register" Saying that i have won a prize for doing a recent survey. Ive done lots of surveys over the last few months. Seems like there are cash prizes ranging from 25 - 20,000.

    I just want to know if this is legit or not and if anyone else has received letters from them before i respond and take the actions of either Phone, text or post.

    Thanks in advanced

    As far as I'm aware it's not legit. It costs 9 to text/phone them and you're not guaranteed a prize. I'd be interested to hear if there's any smallprint reference to Wye Valley Promotions on your letter, they have been known to send out letters like these and have been fined for it before.

    Thank you for your response, i did a little research but couldn't find much. I know there are reports of similar companies doing the same so i think i won't risk it.
