No luck for me again today on the Western Union contest. I tried a new email today and that didn't work either. I wonder what is blocking me from receiving a PIN?

I've sent an email request every day since the contest was posted, but haven't received a PIN back yet. I don't have a junk file with my email (Sympatico), so I'll have to think of another way to try to get them. Hmmmmm.

Thanks for the responses.
Sympatico does have a junk email. I had a sympatico account quite a few years back and was missing emails from people. My husband showed me a different way to log into my mail and see if I had any missing emails. I did. Not sure why the emails went there and didn't show up in my regular check. Found out I am having a similar issue with my outlook mail and I will regularly check through the web site for missing emails. I'm not sure what the web page is that you go to to check as it's been quite a few years since I had a sympatico account but it might be this: https://webmail.bell.net/loginr/wmwrap.jsp

Hope it helps.

Sympatico did have a junk mail file, that I wasn't aware of until someone on this board pointed it out a few years ago (maybe you?), but they dropped it when they moved from the hotmail portal last year. I was so grateful to have learned about the junk file, because I did find several wins there, but now there is no option to monitor your own junk at all. I even called them up about this last year when we were forced to move to their new and improved (as if!) portal. Thanks for the suggestion though!

That's too bad. I know with outlook you have to pay for the full version to get all the features and that still doesn't guarantee that I won't miss any emails and I am too cheap to pay for it. Luckily I don't use it for contests. I am in the midst of changing my contest email from yahoo to a gmail account. Perhaps you should think about getting a new account for contests.

Funnily enough, I have that on my to-do list. I have been hating all of the spam I get on my personal account, so will be getting a hotmail account soon.

Yeah, they said that last year too but I got my prize quickly then. I was wondering if they had started shipping.

Yes, but they don't seem to like me, lol!
So weird. Maybe send them a message via social media asking for help? I don't understand why it's not getting through.

For some strange reason, my new hotmail account did the trick! Thanks for following up with another suggestion though.
