Hello there,

Anyone heard of these? I cant believe what i've read on-line or seen on there live draw videos.

I'd to know to if a fellow pistonhead member plays with these guys.

The website is very incomplete, links to social media don’t work, copy write year has typo, ‘po box under construction’

Big fat red flags, treat with caution- that was after a 20 second look. If that’s a new site no way they’re selling enough tickets for those massive prizes . Name is also so generic.

Maybe I’m cynical.

Edit, no I’m not, just read the t&cs lol. Postal entry route under construction by the way. Letter box must be on back order.

An absolute scam.

No way have they sold that many tickets for those competitions, they have most likely “sold” the tickets to themselves in order to make them appear more credible.

They have 39,000 followers on Facebook, but no engagement on their posts, willing to bet my right leg they have purchased followers (bots) to look more legitimate.

They are also not currently running ads, even the big boys like Rev Comps and DCG are still having to run ads on Facebook.

If you look on their videos of the live draws on Facebook it is one guy talking whilst videoing a “random number generator” machine, that are well known for being able to be pre programmed.... all of the videos have about 6 views.

An absolute scam for sure.

I ran a competition company (legitimately) so can pick out a scam one from a mile away.

End of rant!

That's the most blatant one I've seen since peak pandemic when these sites were popping up on a weekly basis.

I love how they basically openly admit to running an illegal lottery by not not having any way of entering for free, none of the sites have been that blatant up till now.

I tried to plough through their pictures on Facebook to try and see when this all started (i gave up in the end) - 82 pictures on their timeline, about 6 from 2018 then a big gap to 2020. But the main picture album is over 17k pictures! It’s the same pictures over and over again. What really got my goat was they did a Ukraine fund/draw as well which led me to hope it wasn’t a scam but it looks as though it is. Those draw videos are laughable - reminds me of the Agri one a few years ago but without the gasping when they realise they’ve messed up the rigged draw.

Unless I’m missing something very obvious, I don’t understand the outrage at this.

It’s 10 pieces plus the charger and batteries.

What aren’t I getting?

Meanwhile my mate who won an evo from DCG last year has now also won £8k from them last week.

What's the scam here? Money laundering, tax evasion, do they genuinely have a lot of players?

Don't need very many players to make decent money if you never give anything away.

Sorry been an insane weekend; collected the Evo and called in at the Jaguar garage nearby so a friend could poke around an F-Type and we were back there again today so he could test drive a couple biggrin

Evo needs suspension adjusting and a couple of small things sorting but overall over the moon as you'd probably imagine smile Chap I dealt with couldn't have been nicer & they had a whole load of other cars lined up for future competitions too and can definitely confirm there are plenty more nice cars coming soon!

Obliglatory photo with one of its stablemates for the time being, the Integra will probably go up for sale soon as a result of this - amazing car in its own right but completely different to the Evo.
