Step 4: Enter as many contests as you can. There are many different kinds of sweepstakes, Dailies (you can enter everyday), Weeklyâ€™s, Monthlyâ€™s, One-timers, Instants, Essays, recipes, pictures. Enter everyone in the household if the sweepstakes is one per person.Sometimes you have a better chance with one time or weekly or monthly entries. The harder it is to enter the better chance you have to win. If you have to write an essay or send in a recipe or picture you have a better chance to win because a lot of people will not take the time to do the work.

Warnings: *Donâ€™t worry about giving your phone number address it is easy to find on the internet. Just donâ€™t give out your social security number. If you win something over $600 dollars you will receive and affidavit in the mail then you will have to give your social security number so your win can be reported to the IRS and you will have to have the affidavit notarized.
*You do have to pay taxes on your wins but only on the value of the prize. If you find it cheaper online or in an ad, save the ad and only pay taxes on the true value. Wins under $600 dollars you do not have to pay usually.
*Never respond to any e-mail like this: "Hello My Dear Friend I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft worth of (usd$2.5M.USD) )TWO MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS which my boss left with me before he travelled out of this Country, but I did not hear from you since that time.

What you have to do now is to contact the Fedex Delivering Company as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you And For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge of the package. The only money you will send to the Fedex Express Company is ($185.00 US) for Security Keeping Fee to Enable them Settle the Security Company And deliver your package direct to your postal Address in your country.Just $185 United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Fedex Delivering Company so far.....
