What About Those Online Complaints?
There are 2 primary responses to those complaints.
But first, please understand that we take every legitimate complaint seriously and try to resolve each one fairly. So if you have a real complaint, contact us.
Now to the primary responses.
1. Unscrupulous Con Artists
Unfortunately, part of living in a free society includes having to deal with frauds, scammers, and con artists, as anyone knows who has dealt with:
- The Nigerian Letter/Email scam where the scammers send you an email and offer you a share in a large sum of money if you transfer a small amount to them first
- Telemarketing Fraud where a caller tries to trick you into giving up your bank information for a free gift
- Identity Theft where scammers use your identity to rack up credit card debit
- Ponzi Schemes where an organization pays returns to its investors from new capital paid to the operators by new investors, rather than from profit earned by the organization
Scammers also pretend to represent FreeLotto and attempt to defraud people who then believe FreeLotto is to blame.
Are a good percentage of online complaints about FreeLotto the result of scammers? Yes. And we try to warn everyone about it as much as possible. In fact if you do Google “FreeLotto Scam,” you’ll see our warning tops the results page.
We even built a website called freelottoscam.com to help raise awareness of the scammers.
But clearly not all complaints are about scammers.
2. Legitimate Customer Complaints
Unfortunately, not every customer is a happy customer at any company in any industry.
As hard as we try, sometimes it’s not enough. Sometimes there’s a misunderstanding. And sometimes, some people just aren’t satisfied.
And that’s common for any organization.
Let’s look at pissedconsumer.com.
Search FreeLotto and you’ll find us there with a 2.2 rating and around 170 complaints.
Now search for the major U.S. department store Macy’s. Its rating is a 2.1 with more than 670 complaints.
How about the gold standard of customer satisfaction Apple? Its rating is a 2.2 with 160 complaints and counting.
You get the point.
Having angry customers does not mean the company is running a scam. It means the company is running a business with lots of customers.
The question is percentage.
We literally have tens of millions of players.
If FreeLotto were a scam, would we really be able to fool so many people for so long? No.
So, in the end, if you enjoy playing sweepstakes, play FreeLotto. Have fun. And who knows, you could become rich! After all, we’ve awarded over $100 million in cash and prizes, and we’re not finished yet!
