Banning Contests

I think that these so-called contests, that occasionally pop up on the site, are nothing more, than fishing schemes. There should be a 'Ban' on running these so-called 'Giveaways',because I believe the people running them are just phishing for personal info and not delivering. What's your thoughts on the matter?

You your be so kind to add some examples of reference and possible proof of alleged Phishing?

Thank you,

The contest thang in order to gather personal information has gone on long before the internet.
Reminds me of the Win a New Car in a mall back in the early 70's

As far as contest for items of value, they usually need to be approved by RCG staff.
