Just wondered if anyone had any knowledge or thoughts on the following.
I received a letter from Healthy Magazine (the Magazine produced by/for Holland and Barrett) to say "Congratulations! - I had won a prize worth £200 in their competition" The prize was a lightbox - and I was really pleased and in fact emailed them and said I was really looking forward to getting it.
Came home today to a msg asking me to call - seems they made a mistake - the winners letter was sent to all 7 people instead of just to 1 and a runner up prize letter to 6. Guess what - I am a runner up and get a measly light bulb and by way of consolation - two free issues (£1.50 each) of their magazine.
Not only do I think that's a pretty poor deal and reflects badly on both the magazine company and Holland & Barrett, but I wondered how I stand legally having received this letter and then not the prize?
Any comments gratefully received -has this happened to anyone else before? or are any of the other five on HUKD?
