Franners - the guaratee entry after 5 rejections no longer operates, I'm afraid. Enjoy Brighton - its fab. Manchester for me, I think.
I've just followed the payment link posted on page 3 of this thread. It's now asking me to pay £28. To pay or not to pay? Is it kosher?
Holymoly i paid last night and soon after got my conformation E mail
Thanks MM. Just paid, confirmation email received instantly with ref no etc. OMG!
Oh well, 4 entries from the Wood household and not one who gets to the payment screen, such is life. Congrats to all who make it, will be there to give you a cheer, make sure you enjoy the day
I just rang VLM to check the credibility of the link as there has been alot of talk on facebook that its a scam, she was saying its not them until i actually gave her the link she then asked me have i got my pack yet i said no and she said dont panic just wait for the pack....so i am taking that as a good sign and also I am in as it asks me for payment!
I paid upfront !! so the link doesnt ask for payment would it say that ??? confused.com
It would be a very odd scam if:
a) It rejects 90% + of people who trya nd enter and only accepts credit card details from teh select few - perhaps the scammers don't want everybodies card details
b) it clearly is already populated with the email addresses of people who entered the ballot - just try and enter a random address and you get an entirely different response.
c) the site checks out as OK with McAfee and other protection agencies
d) If it were a scam do you think it would still be around after 4 days?
If you paid upfront you cant use the link and will have to wait till you get the mag
thanks Keith for that
does the london marathon website immediately destroy your details if you are not successful in the ballot? It doesn't seem to have any record of me. Even when I enter my email address and click "forgot my password" link I just get a message telling me they have no record of me. But I have a screenshot of the entry reference from April. Pah!
agentginger I think if you bequeathed (whatever its called) when you clicked the donate entry fee if not successful then its a different matter -apparently if you did that then you just have to wait for mag as obviously thats a payment link and not applicable to you if youve already paid
I'm in at the 5th attempt on the guaranteed entry scheme. However I'm already booked in for Brighton with a lot of work colleagues. So I'll probably defer by which time I should have my GFA. Doh!
well, i'll wait patiently by the letterbox and hope for the best
Rejection mag arrived so the 'Sorry not got your details' message is a pretty good indication of rejection if you've not bequeathed. Ah well see you lucky ones at mile 17...
My rejection mag has just arrived. Was going to leave it at that but my mate has just called to say he's been accepted so maybe I'll have to do a charity place instead.
