Beware of scams. There are plenty of sweepstakes scams that require money or a purchase upfront, but there are also scams where someone will call you and tell you you've won a prize but need to pay a fee or give them your bank account information in order to claim it. Don't fall for these tricks. Legitimate sweepstakes will not require payment or personal financial information.
