    Has anyone ordered from magnamail? Has anyone won from them?

    I ordered a few things from another crowd that's similar to what magnamail & sterling mail order carry...
    Its mostly substandard "cheap as" stuff...You also have to pay a fair bit of freight from memory....
    What did you want to know exactly?

    Got a magazine and a magnamail insert on it saying I'm a winner but I need to purchase to claim the prize. I'm fine purchasing a few dollars on their products if I'm definitely going to get the prize. I'm just not sure if they are legit.

    That sucks you need to purchase something to get the prize - does sound a bit suspect - what do you win if you make a purchase?
    Good Luck

    It says "one of these prizes is definitely yours" Eligibility is confirmed on receipt of order:

    10,000 Cash
    Ruby and Crystal Pendant and ring set
    1,000 Cash
    Solitaire Diamond earrings and pendant

    I must order w/in 7 days. Talking about pressure :)

    Oh yeah actually I think I know ones like this - magnamail and I think LV Martin or someone used to do it too - so yep I think if you order you will win the prize - but 99.99% chance it will be the cheapest prize which will probably be Ruby and Crystal Pendant and ring set

    I reckon that's the idea I reckon - to make it seem like quick you better order or you'll loose out on your prize
    Good Luck

    they have been doing this for years - I doubt its dodgy, youll just get the cheapest prize which will break after you use it a few times

    Question Magnamail

    I received a scratch and win competition from them saying I won $21, 000 NZ, and a pearl broach!
    And I thought wow I won 21, 000 dollars, so I sent it straight away to them, and the only prize I received was a garnet Pearl broach.
    LoL, which was made in china.

    So out of 3 prizes I was meant to get, I only got that one.

    So I am still waiting for my 21, 000 dollars.

    Since I photocopied what was sent to Magnamail, I will forward this onto Scamwatch here in NZ, and plus a few consumer TV programs as well!
    That's if I don't get my prize, that they said I won.

    What really get's to me, is that they had a New Zealand lottery permit number on their promotional material.

    Interesting! I wonder who approves of NZ lottery permits, maybe theres a lottery council who'd be intersted in hearing about it?
