By admitting that you realize you just made yourself inelligable for that prize and anyone that knows you will now be commiting a crime if they claim it for you...

If the contest says you have to be a legal resident, were you just going to have a friend claim it for you?

ajajj, yes actually I write his info when I enter the prize and he knew.

Er... I don't think you'll be eligible. The rules state that the owner of the email is the official winner, but you also have to live in the US.
