Setup Dummy / Fake / Alias Social Media accounts to win competitions but why?

We’ve talked about alias emails tons in the past and also about compers (people who enter tons of competitions)

Anyway, these above techniques are great but competition managers have become smarter over the past 2 years and most of them request access to your social media to confirm your entries or request that you like / share / retweet etc something to all of your friends / followers etc to gain entry to the competition. This can cause frustration from those people who constantly see you entering 50+ competitions per day (a good target if you’re a new comper) & also this can cause issues with dodgy companies that automatically post content on your behalf or without your knowledge!

For this reason, many compers set up secondary social media accounts to enter competitions.

Things to watch out for:

  • If you win a big prize they often will ask for ID, if your social account is under a fake name you risk losing the prize.
  • Having multiple accounts pretty much breaks every social media sites T&Cs so check first and tread carefully!
  • Searching for ‘RT to win’, #win, #giveaway, #content etc is a great way to find competitions but also fellow compers that you can follow & find what other competitions are out there, eventually some of them will follow you and you can help them find competitions as well
  • Some sites WILL sell your details on (name, email, address, phone number etc etc), if you’re unsure then don’t enter the info but better still simply setup multiple alias emails

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
