You Haven't Really Got Prizes

from the oops dept

AOL accidentally told a bunch of people they had won $10,000 and are now saying it was just a computer glitch. They may be in legal problems for doing so. Also, knowing previous outrages about mistaken prices online, I wouldn’t be surprised if AOL is forced to pay out quite a bit more than the $200 gift certificate to Target they’re offering the non-winners.
