What would you all do to let...

What would you all do to let people know that a contest they've entered is a scam? This page on facebook I've been keeping tabs on seems to draw in those who are desperate to make money from cosplaying, to be really popular like Yaya, or those too stupid to see that it's just a way for this guy to get free advertising. They also ran some promotion to give out free plushies that got delayed repeatedly and never happened. There were a lot more people in the core team before who have quit for various reasons, such as the artist who did the original logo not getting paid and being threatened with litigation for letting people know how the owner truly is.

So far the contest has been running for little over half a year I think, they kept saying it would be over and pushing it further, and they still have yet to announce anyone because the guy who runs it is broke as all hell. There's also a whole bit about how they are trying to do some $20K prospective marketing campaign.

The page if you're interested is True Mischief Productions. The guy is also running a gofundme to become a pro wrestler also, which furthers the not having funds point.

Still waiting on the contest winner announcement as well. If it is strictly by popular vote, the monster hunter cosplay won.

I have heard that he does pay some of the models though.

Well they just announced a winner, but she seems to be in on it since she even made a post about his gofundme that kind of shows he has no money... and the end wasn't by popular vote, it was by their "staff".

I haven't heard of him paying a single person. Hell, he made a post about having to work 2 jobs and was trying to scam people into rooming with him at AX.
