One of the country’s largest sweepstakes companies now will have to tell consumers they have not yet won….and that buying won’t help them win. Attorney General Jay Nixon says United States Purchasing Exchange agrees to pay more than 30-million dollars in restitution to consumers nationwide. He says the elderly often fall prey to sweepstakes come-ons, buying thousands of dollars worth of trinkets in the hopes of increasing their odds of winning. Nixon and the attorneys general of 47 other states sued USPE over its marketing practices. The settlement money will be placed into a fund that will pay restitution to consumers who spent more than 18-hundred dollars with the company from 1997-’99.
