complaint about sweepstakes - Readers Digest

sweepstakes for Rs.22, 00, 000/= by Reader's Digest has been conducted for a year now. They keep sending mailers advising readers that they are just very near for winning Rs.22 lacs. with each response they send two envelopes for replies and with each of these mails, they ask you to purchase a product from them. If you agree to buy the product, one must use the envelope marked YES, for which postage is paid by addressee. if you choose not to buy their product, you must use the NO envelope, for which postage is to be paid by sender not the addressee. This is ridiculous and irritating. They are making fool as they changed the dates to year 2010. Every time they send a list of books to be purchased and minimum cost of a book is Rs 1000. They also claim that to win sweepstakes, no purchase is necessary but they send such letters almost every week and ask to purchase.

This sweepstakes is a cleverly concealed fraud aimed at marketing their other products.

Their sweepstakes procedure should be validated by a proper authority before they are permitted to carry on the current sweepstakes.

Well, with all due respect to the complainer i completely disagree with you. The same problem occurred with me too. But, i got my copy when i brought the problem into the notice of RD crew. In fact, they responded well and were very polite. Initially my name also had wrong prefix and here also they quickly responded and amended it with correct one at the earliest. You need to communicate correctly to the right person.

Warm Regards,
