    Hi! So i got my hopes up to high when I was announced I won one of the prizes for the Instagram Giveaway, but I've read in previous threads that ends up being a scam, is that true? Has anyone experienced something similar?
    Should I just wait or...?

    Well if you got the message from Oneplus that you've won, I think it'll be all OK. However and now I'm not sure, I think in the past there have been fake messages of people winning something bit again, I'm not sure.

    @BeingIncog, can I pick you mind here, do you remember fake winner announcements?

    There have been delays in the past, yes. Where no messages or replies were sent after the first one.

    Just to be sure, did you receive the DM from the official verified OnePlus account?

    I can attest that if you won something from OnePlus USA, you will receive it. I've won a backpack and, more recently, a Buds Pro. They will DM you for your contact info. Be on the lookout for a DM from OnePlus_USA. Oh, and congrats!

    I've won both on twitter and on the forums. In both cases received my thermos bottle and Buds Z so if you're messaged from an official account it should be good. Congrats :)

    I won on Twitter and received a OP9. For me, they contacted me and I gave them my info a d a few weeks later had my phone. For a friend here on the forums that won a OP9 Pro, it took a lot longer for him to receive his phone.
