Never received certificates  Time owned: more than 12 months
I applied for two CQ WPX awards two years ago and 18 months ago and have not received either certificate yet. I've sent several emails to the
award manager until he started ignoring them (when I started asking for a refund). I've sent emails to the editor and now he is ignoring them, too. When I did get replies, it was always the same old story - we're a little behind, the certificates will be sent soon. Still no certificates and it looks like they will never be sent. Although the endorsement stamps always arrived quickly, they are no good without the certificates.
I will not renew my subscription and not apply for any other CQ awards.

Never received certificate  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I got a letter in January stating that I've been approved for the WPX certificate, but I'll have to wait 16 to 20 weeks. It's been 21 weeks, and still no certificate.

I asked the award manager for the status, and those e-mails have gone unanswered.

In fact, I have yet to receive any of the CQ awards.

I spent hundreds of dollars confirming my QSOs for this award. I hope this isn't some scam by CQ magazine to steal $12 from me.
