Omaze - Fake, scam in the name of charity

Omaze is duping participants worldwide by promising unbiased selection of winner, while winners are mainly based out of the US - most likely fake profiles created by the firm.

I fully agree with you. I am getting regularly the list of winners and from 4-5 lists that I received so far, I see that 99% are from the US.

There is always 1-2 winner from Canada ( what a coincidence, always someone from Canada and always just 1-2) and one from the UK.

I agree with other opinion that the winner profiles from the US are fake or they only draw a winner from the pool of US applicants and there is no chance of winning for people from other countries ( non English speaking) like me. I will never participate anymore.

Thanks. I feel ripped off too.

As you said all their winners are mostly similar and I would like to add that they are only from US with very rare exceptions. I would expect more winners from Europe, China and/or South Asia given the population size. What are the odds. They don't explicitly mention that only US participants would win, in fact they say things more like anybody could win.

Bunch of thieves! I would request all celebrities to steer clear from these Omaze thugs and the feds should investigate them.
