No it’s not a scam but the odds are not good to win ,they are one that I have a Entry with and the people that help you to win are the scammers but you can win but they have to make it sound like you have Won so you will pay them for the information ,so do you have the answer to Did I Win the Sweepstakes for over two million
Consumer Protection Lawyer: LegalPro, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

My apologies but your post is a bit confusing to me. You are telling me you are sure this is not a scam, but asking me if you won the sweepstakes even though you are being told you won the sweepstakes? And although this isn't a scam, the people who help you win it are scamming you? Wouldn't that by definition make it a scam? None of this really makes any sense to me. Can you clarify?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
