Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
It’s illegal to ask you to pay or buy something to enter or increase your odds of winning.Prize promoters might sell your information to advertisers.
When you sign up for a contest or drawing, you probably will get more promotional mail, telemarketing calls, or spam email instead of a prize.If they are wanting money here these are scams.The FTC regulates sweepstakes and not money or purchase can be legally required.If it is a donation I would still be suspect it may be a scam and they may be selling your information to time share sellers or others.I would just consider not responding here it doesn't sound legitimate.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
FTC scam alert
Lucille as long as you don't send them your drivers license or personal id you should be fine.I wouldn't give them any money her even if it is a voluntary one, It should not affect your chances of winning.
