My wife plays this lottery and on 03/03/2013 was informed she had won £5 which would be paid into the bank paying the Direct Debit (mine) within 28days here we are on 08/05/2013 and despite Many 'phone calls and supplying bank statements still no sign of any winnings!
postcode lottery a scam,i will tell you why,after playing for 4 months and not winning,i cancel the next months payment,only to find a week later that i have won £5 on the 16 june 2013,which was still valid upto the end of the month.after sending emails and getting comfirmation that i have won and the money would be in the bank within 28 WORKING days. Several phone calls later it would appear that they had £3000 more than usual to pay out.thats the reason for the delay.but they said they would give me a free ticket in the meantime.but need to reset up a d/d account, (paid with paypal account normally.) and they assure me that no money would come out of the bank. my answer was don,t bother. i will wait and see if ever the money turns up.
If you pay to enter the Peoples Postcode Lottery by Direct Debit, or if you signed up by Credit Card, Debit Card or PayPal but have already registered your bank account details with the Lottery company, your prize money will be transferred to your bank account within 28 days.
Please don't make any further allegations about it being a scam, because it isn't.
