Do you own a company? Then you probably had someone offer you an award without you doing anything special to deserve it.
There are numerous companies offering awards for a small fee. And there are scammers who claim to offer awards that they are not affiliated with.

So be careful and make sure that any award is legitimate. Do not to fall for any such scams!
