Ourstage.com Ourstage Fraud, Breach of Trust, Failure to pay Grand Prizes as promised, Chelmsford, Massachusetts
12th of Mar, 2013 by User904781
Be careful if you enter your intellectual property into Ourstage's "competitions". I won their "Grand Prize" back in August 2011 and still have yet to receive my check 19 months later. Numerous emails between myself and "Heather-Prizing Coordinator" resulted in being told the company was basically broke and cannot pay their prizes at this time, but will honor their prizes... eventually. They basically use your material to build up content on their site and use it freely and welch on their promise to pay you your prize if you win their contest. Also beware, when you win, they have you send in your 10-99 tax information for "taxation on your winnings" so they have your identity information as well as your intellectual property. And then they let you go pound sand.

I would like to confirm that this is still an issue with Ourstage.

I am listed as "Kevin ISM" on Ourstage. I have won no less than 6 prizes in the last six months, each for a $100 Amazon card, so not a lot of money. However, despite chasing, I have yet to receive any of the prizes. The above mentioned "Heather" also gave me the same story that they have suffered a financial set back but are working on a resolution.

If they cannot afford to pay the prizes, they should stop running the contests: they continue to run new contests each month.

Kevin
