Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Can you tell me more about the contest and why you thought you won? What did you believe you had to do to claim the prize?
JA forwarded me the 3rd page.
Apparently, according to the terms, having a match "qualifies" you to come into the dealer and check the confirmation code to see if it matches the winning confirmation code at the dealer. So, if you have the match and then go to the dealer and the confirmation code, in addition to the match, also shows on the list of winning confirmation codes in the dealer, you will win $5000. You are not a winner with only the matching $5000 scratch off.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (5 stars) so that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
