    They say that I won a price, but wont mention which. And they send me a link to fill in shipping information, but it sends me to the photo contest main page. I want to know if anybody else has the same problem.

    And how did they contact you? If by email, what's the email address? Check the message headers, is it legitimate?

    Could be a phishing scam, but who's to say?

    OK, they answers and begged for forgives that the link was wrong, they gave me a new link with a printable pdf witch i have to fill out and probably send it via mail in 7 days, still nothing about the price i won.

    How costly do you think that price is? Seems like a pain to "win" a price.

    I am starting to think that this is a scam. The form that they sent me is in pdf so i have to print it, fill it out, scan it and then email it back to them. This is ridiculous.

    Does seem mighty suspicious if you ask me. If they at any point ask for a credit card or anything of the sort then tell them to sling their hooks.

    E-mail Nintendo to see if it is real. They answer pretty fast.

    By the way, that pic is awesome.

    I emailed them and they sent me this crazy form that i have to print then fill in then scan and then email it to them. Sounds strange but i will try it.

    Well, if you e-mail the legit Nintendo e-mail and they say it's real, it's gotta be.
