Are we sure this is on the up and up? Or is it as P.T. Barnum said ...

I'd be quicker to donate my C note to the Forums before...... At least I'd know it was going to a good cause.

Did you notice the question marks?

I did my fun days with an Airstream trailer, in 47 states.

I don't want another one nor do I need one.

No, I didn't buy any tickets, nor do I intend to.

Perhaps Airstream can clarify this raffle, or perhaps shed some light on it.

Maybe it's legit and maybe not, I have no idea nor am I interested in it.

Andy

If they collect $100,000.00 they could afford to give away a Bambi and more especially if prizes were donated or discounted.

Looks like they have been working to improve the Ohio parks for some time now. I found this. http://www.ohiodnr.com/news/aug05/0816natureworks.htm

Wouldn't Shelby county parks be close to the factory? Perhaps Airstream as a manufacturing and corporation leader in the area is helping communities???

Is this the park?

Before we all get scammed , I have contacted the Mayor of the village of Botkins, which the raffle claims to benefit and will post his response ASAP.

Buyer or "investor" beware. I would think if this was legitimate the people running the raffle would check the spelling in "their" ad before posting it. The mis-use of pronouns is a common tip to an overseas scam.

Michael that is terrific. You really did delve right in. I am anxious to see the results. Something like that with the vast readership here needs to have a definitive scam/legit endorsement.

I was curious so I checked with the CPA firm

I was curious about this and went to the web site and read the misspellings in the "About" area. I then clicked on the "Rules" part and went to the bottom and saw the name of a firm (CPA) that is overseeing this raffle. I googled their website and sent an inquiry to them at their website email address. It came back undeliverable so I called the CPA firm and spoke with someone by the name of Liz. Liz assured me that it is legitimate. I told her that some of us on a forum were questioning the authenticity of the raffle due to some of the grammar and also that her own firm's website email has a problem. She thanked me and said that that may be a factor in the response so far.


Please do not take this as proof that this is legitimate.......I will not be purchasing a ticket --I work too hard for my money......but this is the information I found out in case anyone wants to pursue it further. pj

That is a pretty neat idea, i have seen similar raffles for vehicles, It will be good to know if this is legit or not. I might have to buy a ticket if it is.

I helped build the site, the mis-spelling was simply a careless mistake on my part. If anyone has any questions about the legitmacy of this raffle I will be happy to field any questions on the matter. I am a resident of Botkins, Ohio and the site is a fund raising campaign to help the community pool make some much needed renovation improvements. We hope the raffle is such a success that we can afford to do it on an annual basis. I thank you for your support!
