I've just been to the prize pyramid for the first, and last time. It's been the biggest waste of time of my life! I got there and the first thing I had to do was to put my own name in and a friends name and e-mail address. I did this, and I had to click on the guru to see if I'd won a prize. Of course I had.........if I filled in my details then I would be sent details of what I'd won. I duly went to my e-mail to find that I had won a free instant print A4 poster, if I wanted to get it I could click on the link and choose which one I wanted to print out. Needless to say, I didn't bother. I went onto level 2 and had to put more friends names and e-mail addresses in and repeat the process....this time I won a CD e-voucher to purchase any 3 of the top 75 CD albums at just £6.99p each delivered free to your door. Yes, I would have to spend money if I wanted to use this particular prize. I decided to go up one level more on the pyramid and what did I win next? A CD e-voucher to purchase any 3 of the top 40 CD albums at just £6.99p each delivered free to your door. What a waste of time. Now I've a few of my poor unfortunate friends are also going to be sent an e-mail telling them that I've won an instant prize and that I recommend that they also try there luck. I've got one thing to say to those friends, and anyone else thinking of trying there luck here.................don't bother.
This is, quite simply, the worst competition site I've ever had the misfortune to waste my time in. I actually liked it at first. I rallied various friends to visit and I even won some prizes. And then it all went distinctly pear-shaped. Several of us won prizes. Well that's what they called them. Personally, I don't find the opportunity to buy a CD ar twice the price it's currently on sale in Asda much of a bonus. Then it told me I had six points. What?! My total, at one time, had been 10,000+. The stupid programme have overwritten my most recent entry and deleted all the points I, and my friends, had earned. One or two friends persisted with it. One recruited everyone where she worked - just to see if there was anything but expensive CDs and really tacky A4 posters (that you have to print off yourself) on offer. Well, a few hundred people entered. Several times. No, there were no other prizes won, but strangel everyone got the 'opportunity' to buy those CDs.
The fact that this game has the word 'Pyramid' in the title should give you a big clue as to what it's about. Basically, the idea is to build up a pyramid of friends via their email address. You progress further up the pyramid according to how many friends email addresses you give them. I've 'won' a voucher to buy cd's at 6.99 and a free A4 poster that can be downloaded and printed off. So the prizes aren;t that great. To go on to the next level you have to enter another email address of someone who know. This can be a problem. I know plenty of people by email address, but I'd consider it to be really facey to enter all their names and thus have junk mail sent to them. I'd rather keep my friends than 'win' some of the prizes. Allegedly, the further you go, the better the prizes on offer get, to a cruise, a complete home photographic set-up and the top 100 albums. If you know plenty of people's email addresses and they don't mind you giving their addresses out, then this would be the site for you. I won;t be bothering with it again because I don't want to upset the people I know.
Spam or not to Spam is the question. To what am I referring? Why, theprizepyramid.com of course. This site is building a huge database of email addresses with our help, how is it doing this, I hear you ask. The site is currently running a competition that has a top prize of a £10000 cruise; to get this you need to reach the top of The Prize Pyramid. This is achieved by inviting "friends" to participate as you try yourself to reach the summit and play for big prizes. Each of your friends in turn invites their “friends”, and soon everyone everywhere that has an email address will have been invited. The prizes on offer before you get to the top are not prizes at all but discount offers from other sites. So what should we do? We can either ignore it, or better still give them the email addresses of all the other Spammers and get your own back.
