    It IS a scam…

    I used to work for a car dealership that would run these scams once a month. And to the authors point, it is nothing more than a ploy to get people to buy cars – especially when the dealership is hurting for business, or has horrible reviews.

    My advice to anyone who receives these mailers? Throw them in the garbage. They aren’t worth the paper they are printed on.

    My girlfriend got one of these, and I noticed the odd wording in the fine print about comparing the code to the dealer’s game board. In this case it was a 3×3 grid of colored cars where you could win a cash prize, 55″ 4K TV, a smart watch, and I forget what else.

    This definitely smells of an outright scam, but I think they are doing a really good cover up of the fact that you have only won a chance to win (if even).

    Thx for the specific wording on “to compare the confirmation code to the car dealership’s prize board.”

      Not only auto dealerships responsible, but whoever created the game itself needs to be dealt with. The best way to go is to call your state gaming Commission and they can tell you who wins. I doubt you will find any winners but I would be trying to sue for false advertisements. This game the king of cars is no different than Publishers Clearing House who has a tendency to send out universal game pieces and each one mailed out will say the recipient is a winner when in reality the only thing you really won is the right to waste your time to play the second part of a game that you have no chance of ever winning. F*** king of cars scam.
