refunded prize grr - lsd sld sl
I just found out that they refunded my prize ($25 paypal), and when I tried to reapply for it, they now have a SMS verification. I have a feeling that they refunded my shipping because they just wanted me to give my phone number For you Americans and UK and canadians... please tell me: Do they ask you for a SMS too? Even if they changed the verification process, I think they don't have a right to refund the prize just to get me through the new system, but instead they should just wait until I get my next prize to try it out. And is there any way to get around it without using my phone? I don't want to link my found to a SwagBucks account. Thanks.
