I'm really frustrated with these 2 people. I just don't understand why would they host a giveaway featuring their own products and NEVER send the prize to the winner (me). I'm duped! I won a spa set giveaway over at I Am The Princess blog in March 2009, and the prize never arrive until now. The owner said there was something wrong with my address. I think that's how she tried to cheat me by saying, "Oh, it seems like there's some problem with your address and I can't send the prize to you. Sorry."
I may have believed her back then, but hey, I got many prizes from other giveaways. So why should I believe her? If she did mail the package, then why won't it arrive? I don't trust her and I won't trust her. Oh, no.
Another one is a giveaway from Lindsay The soap girl's blog. I won the Travel case and some sample soaps way back in June 2009, but there's not even a shadow of it until now. She made a blog post to announce the results, but I never got the prize. I e-mailed her several times to remind her, and all she said was, "It looks like the original mail got buried deep in my mailbox. I will get the prize to you soon." Soon. And now it's October. Great. I feel like a total idiot right now.
To those who cheated me by not sending the prize and always finding excuses for yourselves : Please, please don't do that again. If you have no money or you're broke, just tell me honestly. And, one more thing - don't ever do a giveaway on your blog if you can't get the prize out to the winner. This will only make the them happy the whole day for nothing. And after realizing the 'reality' is nothing more than a beautiful dream, they'd curse you for cheating them. I'm not going to curse you, though - so thank god for that.
