    Is this even official? Looks kind of dodgy when it has the PayPal logo but is on a different domain. Where did you find it?

    Eesh, so this is fake? :-/

    It'll just go to the spambox then.

    You can see it's registered by Mark monitor. So its fake. Check who the email was from.
    I got an email about Christmas prizes and gifts from PayPal and the link in the mail takes me to PayPal.com

    So looking at the page it is legit... however that said, it does not matter which box you pick. If you were going to win that day any box would give you the same prize, I hate contests like that....

    The SSL certificate is valid. This isn't fake, unless someone hacked Paypal's SSL certificates, in which case they could earn money by setting up a 100% legit looking fake Paypal.

    I forgot
    We've been advertising this on a couple sites I manage at work, we've had a few people win $25.

    But I haven't won anything :(
