Looks like a questionable organization. They are a "determination
pending" charitable organization which means they only recently
organized as a charity. And when they talk about how much of the
money goes to charity they never say, just that the NET proceeds will
go to charity. Well the NET can be $1.00 if they spend money
foolishly or criminally. The charity they say they will send the
money to may well be a fine organization but there isn't anything that
actually suggests there is a formal tie between these people selling
the tickets and the charity. Any damn fool can apply to get
non-profit status and form one of these raffles with a stated goal of
giving the NET to charity. I'd want to know a lot more before I'd
send them money and they aren't providing any useful info on their web
Also, most raffles of this sort only sell a few thousand tickets so
your odds of wining in these typically are like one in 4000. This
"charity" will potentially sell over 60,000 tickets so your chances of
wining are only 1 in 60,000.
If you look at their contact>affiliate page you will also find they will
pay you $1 for each customer that makes a purchase if you referred them
to the site. That is why this SPAMMER is posting to a Ford group.
Address fake until the SPAM goes away ;-}
i did not look at anything but the title. i come here for Ford info. when i
see anything about other brands, i automatically figure it for spam, or the
poster is just an idiot that does not know the difference between a Blue
Oval and the thing they are driving.
your description of their practices makes allot more sense now.
