I found the anchor and still no reply from Cheetos. Need my $$$$$
Melissa Courtney Abel says
This sweepstakes is not real. My friend won the anchor one and when the check arrived, I was told it could not be verified and Frito Lay said they have never heard of this contest.
How can i upload a picture of mu cheetos figures
Andra C Mitrovich says
I won the week of June 6th, the shape was of an anchor. The called me to verify my information, sent me a contract of acceptance – I crossed my T’s dotted my I’d and returned it with an electronic signature. Eight weeks went by and I rec’d my $10,000 check via FedEx! HOWEVER, went to the bank they couldn’t verify it so they gave it back. Took it to ACE EXPRESS to cash it, they called Frito-Lay to verify in which they said they knew nothing about it. So the check cashing company kept the check because they claimed it to be a fraud! That was in July last year. Today I received a form 1099 from FritoLay for $10,000 to report to the IRS?!! WTF?! IAM sick about all of it and don’t know what to do!
This is a legitimate sweepstakes. If you filled out official paperwork, they should have honored the prize. You need to go back to the original person who contacted you with the paperwork and explain that you never received the prize. You don’t have to claim something on taxes you never received. It sounds like human error to me. You just need to follow up with the people who contacted you about the prize to work it out.
Did you not call Ace Express corporate? That’s theft.
Andra C Mitrovich says
Thanks for the emotional support. I called Frito-Lay and received a call from them letting me know that they are checking into the situation. Hopefully, they will see that the check wasn’t cleared and reissue the check. As for ACE, I contacted them and asked what they do with checks in situations like this and they said it’s on file defaced by the word “fraud”
I asked for a copy of the check for my records, the manager refused so I contacted Corporate Headquarters and waiting for reply.
Andra, I’m glad you checked into it. Make sure you tell Frito-Lay what happened with the check and how it was flagged as fraud. Make sure your name is cleared so you have nothing on your record concerning the check. Good luck and keep us posted. Wendy (Sweetie)
