Hi, I'm not sure where to post this so please move it if need be.

I found this website (picture.com) a few month ago and thought i'd post one photo on it. Anyway they say that i've won some sort of award.
Quote:
Our Outstanding Achievement in Photography Crystal Award Trophy (a $300.00 value) & Your bronze Commemorative Award Medallion is a deeply etched bronze medal (a $40.00 value) & Full Basic Membership into the International Society of Photographers for 2007 (a $60.00 value)
Now they have sent me a few emals over the last few weeks and want me to pay $169.00 plus p+h to post me my winnings to England. I just want to know if this is some sort of scam ?

BTW i'm not going to reply or pay anyway because i thinks it's way too much to pay for something i'm not sure that i want. I didn't think my photo was that good anyway.

Most assuredly it's a scam.

Just looked at the past winners and they have hundreds of them. I think it's a scam. I would be paying over the odds for a rubbish award.

Sure looks like a scam. If you won something you should not have to pay for it. lol

It's a scam. They should send the award money free and just deduct the cost from the award. If you send them money they will A-Want more...Or B that will be the last you hear from them. Post that photo here so we can see it.

I recieved something in the mail (not email) over the weekend from the same company saying I won something or other but I had to pay...I tossed it out. If you win something, I don't see why you would have to pay for it. :-?
