    FAN CLAIMS FRAUD IN CHRISTMAS CARD CONTEST

    Megadeth and Megadeth.com hold an annual Christmas Card contest where the top ten winners all win a prize, and the first place winner receives a phone call on Christmas Day from Dave Mustaine, along with other prizes. This year, our winner Jim Chadoulas allegedly submitted the artwork of another artist. Although we were notified of the possible plagiarism by an anonymous fan in Brazil after the Christmas Day call was already placed, we are investigating this matter further. We stand by the fact that Jim is innocent until proven guilty, and if our winner did indeed use someone else's artwork, we will be notifying the second place winner to award him the first place prize and he will receive a phone call from Dave Mustaine. We hope to clear this up as quick as possible.
