100bestbuy is running a fraud contest

I saw an advertisement at facebook.Com that offered me the opportunity to enter a ‘contest’ to win a samsung galaxy s2 handset upon making a payment of rs.399, which I made online on july 24. I received a ‘contest coupon’ and payment confirmation through email. The contest was being run online by a website called 100bestbuy.Com and the results were supposed to be announced in the first week of the following month, I.E., August. According to the terms and conditions listed at http:/Www.100bestbuy.Com/Tc-contest.Php, “winners will get confirmation call and personal emails. Other applicants will get email consist of winner list for that month.” So, on august 7, I wrote to them asking for the list of winners to be emailed to me. They replied at first that contest results would be announced in the second week of august and, when that had passed and I had written to them again, that the results would be announced in the third week. I haven’t received the promised email although the fourth week has also passed. I suspect that the ‘contest’ is a fraudulent exercise and that none of the 'contestants' wins anything at all as no 'results' are ever declared. I wish to warn unsuspecting internet users so that they do not fall into that trap and lose hard-earned money as I have.
