A sweet surprise turns sour for one Stratford man who thought he had won thousands of dollars in scholarship money from a Coca Cola sweepstakes. Coca Cola said they sent him the "you won" message in error.

Helps to read the rules and get the affi confirmed

I was reading on that other site that MissyMooMoo "won a hybrid car" and then they took it away. However Coke offered her $1000 to compensate her for the error.

Yes, saw Missy's "win" too. What a bunch of crap. People are getting DQ'd left and right for a $20 card for NO reason and those who should just plain old be DQ'd get a $1000. Yeah - why bother reading the rules these days.

I agree, however Coke doesn't want the bad PR so they are saying here is some cash, just ePrize is the one disqualifying the $20 wins and this was Coke's error.
