Has been delayed twice and asked for money

I signed up for this through Instagram just randomly. I was asked if it was something I’d be interested in so I said yes. Originally no money was asked for. They said the contest voting would start in Aug or Sept. I waited and shared to friends on my Facebook. My friends were excited for me. The day came and past and I received an email stating they changed the date to September 22nd. Yesterday the day before the next go live I received an Instagram message from someone asking me to send my link for the voting to them in a DM. After checking their page and seeing tons of women also from Fabover40 showing up with their links and Fabover40 filling and liking their page I figured they were affiliated some how so I sent my link to them. They proceeded to tell me that they would like to promote me on around 15+ pages and get me around 3000 followers. I found this odd because they didn’t even have that many followers, but I asked what’s the catch? What do I have to do? They hesitated and then after saying and bunch of sales jargon they said they just want $30 and I believe per page… I stopped listening after $30. I told them that they should have started with that information and not tried to lie their way to get my money. I then said no thanks. I DM’d the Fabover40 page and received a instantaneous response that said they weren’t taking any DMs at that time but if someone was trying to ask for money send a report to Instagram and report it. I found that odd that they had a pre-typed message made just for my problem. I did report the scam to Instagram and then blocked that specific page and any affiliated pages. Today Fabover40 page posted that the event had been postponed yet again until October. I’m starting to feel like they are a scam and are waiting until more people send more money, but I just can’t tell. I hope someone can help.

This same thing happened to me & I'm sure to anyone who entered and using the hashtag on social media. I just ignored the spam/scam accounts and/or deleted their comments & DMs. The auto replies from the real Fab Over 40 Instagram account is totally normal as IG allows business & creator accounts to set up FAQ's & auto replies. So no worries there. The other thing is no one is required to buy anything. I've had people donate to the NBCF using the hope votes, but never asked anyone to or solicited for that so doing so is totally up to the voter(s). It was either because the person wanted to donate or because they didn't want to go vote every single day.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out because 1. I do agree that it's not clear how many groups there are & how many "competitors" are in each group. That would be a HUGE improvement. And 2. there are a ton of rounds & it lasts for 2 months, presumably to raise more awareness & for fundraising. Changing these 2 things would be a HUGE improvement, in my opinion.

I'm getting those dms too from people claiming they're voting teams saying they can get me 1000 votes per day yeah right! Don't believe that. And I know it's about money because I was 17th place but when my friend donated I was pushed up to 8th now I'm 9th!

There are a couple of accounts using similar names to FabOver40. The same thing happened to me snd I thought it was them but when I searched, it is a promotion company from somewhere in India trying to lure all the contestants into their scam by pretending to be them only to catch your attention and then ask fir $ to promote you and get you votes. Just be careful. FabOver40 seems legit and if you go on the National Breast Cancer Foundation Page you can read up on FabOver40. Hope that helps. The website is. Nationalbreastcancer.org

You shouldn't be paying with this competition. Don't get scammed. It's against the rules to pay people to vote for you. IJS

Hi G,

It looks like you've encountered "copycat" scam accounts — these fraudsters take advantage of entrants and the good nature of the competition to make money, while also breaking competition rules, viewable under "how to vote" on our rules page: https://votefab40.com/rules

The Fab Over 40 Competition will never reach out, unsolicited, to any potential competitors on social media—and we recommend reporting those accounts to Instagram. We have had a few reports about these accounts which is why we've included the automated message on our social auto-reply. Our support team can be contacted directly through our website https://votefab40.com/support

While Fab Over 40 acts as a professional fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the competition has not begun yet and competitors should not be providing funds or any personal information to anyone who appears to be associated with our project.

Fab Over 40, LLC donated over $2.2M to the NBCF in 2021 and our team looks forward to making another meaningful contribution to the National Breast Cancer Foundation at the close of this year's competition.

You can learn more about how we're working with NBCF on their site: https://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/fab-over-40/

You can read about last year's donation in the news: https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/579453370/fab-over-40-renews-contract-with-natio... />

I ALMOST ENTERED!

Every year The Fan over 40 people send me that question! Are you going to enter the contest? I finally decided to look into it. I filled out and sent in my photo, read the terms but didn't truly find how all of this actually worked. Where it says, CONTACT US, I sent them an email asking them, what happens from here? There is nowhere that explains how this all really works! I received nothing back.
The next thing I did was go on their IG account and saw all these women who had something about sending them their link in DM so I asked one of them what that meant? She gave me a very shady answer and told me basically that it would cost me $110.00 to find out, in a nut shell.
I just received a DM from a different person and she asked me if I was registered for the contest and that time is running out and that she could MAKE me a participant! MAKE ME BE? Oh hell no! I already had somewhat of a red flag go up with the first person but after this one... I told her that I had to check out one more thing before I commit but before I go what's your price? She wrote, $85.00. Oh, and she did answer most of my questions but one she danced around even with me asking it in three different ways! What I had to check out was, Is this Fab over 40 a scam?
It's all over Google and YES IT IS! So you ladies out there, Do NOT fall for this, Do Not give them one dime! They will ask you if you have cash app or venmo too. You'll have less chance getting your money back if you send through those apps! I gotta tell you guys, it these people got a real job they'd probably do very well with the much time they spend trying to scam someone is pathetic to me...

Truly,
TB_HOLLYWOOD

Yeah you have encountered those promotion company that offer to promote your fab 40 link for a certain price that is different then the actual contest and the actual company! I'm in the contest this year and I'm in third place right now as we speak. I just hope I can win it I need y'all all to vote for me! Then that way I can tell ebyweather it's legit or not. But I haven't had to pay one dime so I was not talk to the actual fab 40 contest!

I was a contestant in Fab Over 40. I disagree with the comments above. It's actually easy to see all of the women participating in the contest if you go to their primary webpage. The rules, terms & conditions are also easy to find and read.
In the "Terms" section it shares that with the paid votes 75% of the net goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. That would mean that the rest goes to cover the cost of running the event, the prize money, to pay their staff, etc. NBCF is a great cause, so I was happy to help raise funds for it. The paid votes do not count as donations because Fab Over 40 is not a nonprofit organization. The funds go to covering all their expenses as well as the donation to NBCF. Since the funds go directly to the company first verses NBCF, they cannot legally call them donations or give out donation receipts. Again... all of this is information you can easily find on their site.
I never felt exploited. I've worked hard to take care of myself and stay healthy, which reflects as youthfulness in my appearance. I recently shed a lot of weight by eating more healthy and exercising. After getting new photos, I discovered the contest, so I thought it would be fun to enter. I was right. I made it to the Quarter Finals and had a great time doing it.
We are intelligent enough to realize that this is a fund raising campaign. By people voting with paid votes, the prize money is covered, plus all the expenses and a big chunk goes to an amazing cause. It's not about who looks the best... all the women in the contest were and are beautiful. Every woman has equal worth. It's about who can raise the most funds. So what?! It's for a good cause.
I'd like to think that we inspired other women to recognize that beauty is in all women of all ages. Maybe some women were inspired to take better care of themselves. In the end one woman will end up with some great prize money, a spa-cation, and a spread in a great magazine - New Beauty. AND... the National Breast Cancer Foundation will receive a very large donation to keep up their good work.

You claim above in your comment that "it's actually east to see all of the women participating
in the contest if you go to their primary webpage" What is their primary web page?
I have been looking for it for quite some time, and have not found all the ladies that are competing. So would love to see that. Please provide

I'm in the contest too and sometimes I start to feel bad because I don't feel pretty enough when I place low. I already struggle with self esteem issues so maybe I should just take myself out of the running 😔🤷🏿‍♀️

• Oct 17, 2022

I am requesting to see how many voted I have accumulated so far...do they have that info?

Hi Radiance,

Thank you for this amazing note. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed and had a positive experience in Fab Over 40 last year! Because of competitors like you, and your supporters, Fab Over 40, LLC donated over $2.2M to the NBCF in 2021!

Best wishes,
The Fab Over 40 Team

My wife entered this contest. In help insure her in the finals I paid for over $700 USA to keep her in the top 5 of her group. It was obvious based on patterns that others were doing the same. Next thing she is in the quarter finals. What kind of legitimate contests allow multiple votes by the same people over a period of days and the also allow voters to buy votes even offering 2 fir 1 specials. This is more like an auction, and with the organizer claiming they will donate 75% to Breast Cancer it leaves them a healthy profit. Looks like they have found yet another way to exploit women :( Total to date I spent on votes trying to keep up before I convinced my wife what a scam it really was topped $1600. Any charity that allows funds to be raised by exploiting the people they are supposed to be protecting should be be ashamed.

I'm top 5 and to my knowledge nobody has paid ANYTHING on my behalf. I was 8th before I even shared the link with anyone I knew. The day I shared on Facebook, (only place I have shared) made top 5. Definitely not necessary to buy your way in.

Victim Location 44118
Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

This contest claims to have a winners prize of 40 thousand dollars and a spa trip for two. They create many rounds, but are not transparent about how many groups of contestants there are and no where for them to see each other. They press on the contestants by dropping their "rank" and obliging voters to purchase votes so that they can make it to the next round. There are many , many rounds over a course of months. They claim that the proceeds are donated to the national Breast Cancer foundation, but in the rules claim that none of the money paid is a donation or tax write off.

Hi there,

While the 2021 Fab Over 40 Competition was for-profit (we have to cover the cost of prize package, advertising, employee wages, rent, etc.), Fab Over 40, LLC contributed 75% of net proceeds to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, resulting in a donation of $2.2M last year. Big thanks go to voters like you! You can read more about that here: https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/579453370/fab-over-40-renews-contract-with-natio... />
Competitor rankings will shift solely based on how many public votes they receive. The Competition does not select a winner.

The competition schedule is outlined, along with details of the grand prize, and the donation, which can be found under the "rules" section of our website: https://votefab40.com/rules

Thank you,
The Fab Over 40 Team
