Eurydike, Paris and Gloria up for raffle now, only 2TE per entry.

Tempting, isn't it?

I also saw that.
I think that is 100% a scam.
The player wouldn't even get back the price of the units even if 300 players joined.

I hate raffles. I hate the concept of raffles because only one person ends up winning... and that's the one doing the raffle xD
As many have said, an alternate account can always win the raffle and no one would know about it.
There's a better chance at getting the unit in a box instead of the raffle.

Auctions can have a similar problem, but they are a lot safer: Someone can start an auction and have an alt raise the bid until he gets a fair price. Of course, if the last person bidding is the alt, no one is losing anything... well, except the person auctioning if he's discovered Razz

So: Auctions? YAY. Raffles? NAY!

What I am guessing is, the list there is likely at least half faked(like players didn't join at all) if not all of them.

None of them joined the raffle on this forum(none of them is from an open reply, I hardly doubt newbies will use PM at all)

Nothing showed on their walls(I randomly checked a few of them)
And the scammer is probably also betting no one will even care to read that list, and of course no one will go to those participant's wall and ask if they joined a raffle or not.
