What would you like to do?
I was thinking of ordering from them myself but then decided to do some internet research and found many complaints of shoddy products, etc. I WAS going to order a 42" big scr…een. I managed to find some information at hellodallas.com including this number that you might be able to contact the company at: 214-915-7100, assuming it's not a fraudulent contact number. Glad to help. Total scam. I received a $400 voucher for a laptop computer. Sent them $296 cash and in return they sent me a rundown refurbished notepad that did not work. Do not do business withe these con artists.
My "google research" (see links, below) is not exactly exhaustive or objective. But I have located some helpful internet posts that may help you decide for yourself if i…t's worth your time and money trusting a company that has so many unsatisfied customers. http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/took-my-money-and-didn039t-send-the-product-c77476.html http://www.ripoffreport.com/searchresults.asp?q5=SWEEPSTAKES+CLEARING&searchtype=0&q1=ALL&q3=&q2=&q7=&q4=&q6=&start=0 http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/103/RipOff0103036.htm http://blog.homesfornh.com/2006/06/sweepstakes-clearinghouse-sends-latest-deceptive-mailing/ http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?t=10183 http://m.naplesnews.com/news/2007/Sep/04/scam_parades_sweepstakes_clearinghouse_originating/
Yes! What about them?
I've done business with these people for years. True, I've never won a thing, but I like the lay-a-way plan and have had great success with the quality of products. I've… still got two sets of luggage purchased over 15 years ago that are both in excellent condition, and also had great success with an IBM Think Pad Lap Top!

Very common, and really nothing terribly personal! Especially if had income without withholding, (maybe even interest while on SS, etc), or 1099-misc, etc, you were…/are required to make stimated payments through the year. Not doing so will incur penalty and interest...and curiosity. None of which you want. It's just the form you need to make you estimated payments....a courtesy. How nice of the IRS!

It is owned by Time, Inc, and in theory is legitimate. However, they have been forced by various State's Attorney's office to pay compensation to the thousands who have claime…d to be victimized by them. They are mainly known for pretending that someone has almost won so as to encourage them to buy more magazines or trinkets to increase their chances. While their fine print will usually make mention that no purchase is necessary, the blizzard of brochures and hype make that part hard to find. The elderly are the biggest group targeted. Several multi-million dollar suits have been settled out of court.
If you have to pay any money in advance before picking up the check, then yes, it's a scam.
