Everyone is familiar with media contests that offer the opportunity to win tickets to local events. Contests offer media entities the ability to partner with event promoters. They create advertising opportunities for both parties by giving fans a chance to win tickets. These "comp" tickets are then distributed to winners through phone-in contests or draws.

Radio and newspaper giveaway contests have been around for decades. The modern version of these contests allows web surfers to win tickets to various events.

"Win tickets" websites are essentially advertising "billboards" for travel companies and promoters of events. The sites are hosts for commercial advertising. They draw in their "viewers" with the lure of free tickets.

Heres how they work: a company sets up the website. They woo event promoters and partners, offering advertising in exchange for comp tickets. The company then distributes the tickets to site visitors/members via online contests. The company and the event promoters benefit through advertising. The site visitors/members benefit by having the opportunity to win tickets.

The vast majority of these websites are legitimate. It is simply one more form of advertising in a world filled with technology. Some sites specialize in specific types of ticket giveaways. The most common include travel, sports and concert giveaways.

Some fraudulent sites do exist though. It can be very difficult to distinguish legitimate "win tickets" sites from frauds. Its important to use the same type of computer-savvy caution with these sites as with any other kind of website.

Even the most web-smart can be fooled. These tips may help make you more aware of some of the scams that fraudulent "win tickets" websites use:

* Never pay money to win tickets. The word "win" implies that you have the chance to receive something for free. Its not really a "win" if you have to pay for it. Dont join a website that requires you to pay for membership in exchange for the chance to win tickets. The same rule applies to any "wins" you are awarded. Never send money for so-called shipping charges (to mail tickets to you), taxes or any other types of "fees." Its very likely youll never receive anything in return for your money. Legitimate businesses generate profits from advertising, not by charging fees to their winners.

* Observe the "Two Clicks" rule. Some of these websites are simply portals that are meant to direct you to other websites. They dont actually award you tickets or any other kinds of prizes. Instead, youre asked to click to another website to register or to claim your prize. The site is likely a scam if you have to click away from the original site more than two times.

* Dont join a "win tickets" website that doesnt guarantee your privacy. Most of these companies ask you to sign up for a membership. Youll probably be required to provide some basic personal information. Its usually worth doing this if the possibility of winning events or vacation tickets is real. Authentic sites guarantee that the information you provide will remain private. Fraudulent sites will sell your information to other companies and never award any tickets. Make sure the company guarantees your privacy. Make sure that you can opt out of membership at any time. Check to see if the website has some type of trusted verification code (i.e., Google, etc.) This way, you can contact the company that allegedly verified the site to make sure its legitimate.

Thousands of consumers around the world win tickets every week to events and vacation destinations. The trick is picking the right websites.
