Is the CashQuizz game a scam?


I have been playing various trivia games for over a year now and particularly enjoy them. I especially enjoy ad supported trivia games that have the possibility of winning various gift cards. My enjoyment mainly comes from the fact that I win every so often.

For a little while, I was into playing CashQuizz and have won multiple gift cards. Its been a few weeks and I haven't received any of the cards yet. After a few complaint emails I received the following email...


The CashQuizz team congratulates you on your win of 50$ Amazon!

So... I have no gift cards, and after complaining they need a copy of my passport or photo ID. Is this a scam? Where can I complain about this?

Seems legit to me. Asking for proof of ID is to make sure you are of valid age. Since there are various laws in each country.

Thus maybe do as they suggest.
