Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd RED FLAGS... Warning, warning! I do believe it is a scam! Highly unlikely that this is legit. If Kia was giving away free cars they would be doing a huge marketing campaign along with it. Plus, why would this special contest be taking place in England.
