Another AtS DVD contest We have 5 sets of Angel: Season Two to give-a-way courtesy of Fox!

You may enter the contest once per day (with a limit of one entry per household) - the more you enter the better your chances are of winning. This contest closes at 11:59 PM Sunday September 28, 2003 and is open to residents of the U.S.A. and Canada.

USE CAUTION if you sign up for this.

Is this contest officially sanctioned by Fox? Doesn't look like it. "Courtesy of Fox" could just mean the contest organizers aquired Fox merchandise from a number of sources, but not necessarily directly from Fox.

What will become of the information given? Usually if it were an officially sanctioned contest, it'd be at the fox website or a website linked directly from fox, and it'd ask for more than a name and email address.

This looks to me like a blatant attempt at aquiring a mailing list. If no one ever hears from this 'dvdangle' company again, they wouldn't think anything of it, assuming someone else won the dvds. Even if it is sanctioned, it doesn't look like it. If you sign up for this, I recommend using an email address that already gets spam. It just looks like a spam scam to me. "Buyer beware" and all that.
I so agree. I went there and was immediately suspicious. I get enough spam as it is.
This also seems like an attempt at self-linking.
