i must say i have never heard of this before i would check her out a little 1st before even thinking of anything like this, i would ask to see proof of her daughters disability etc what organisation the raffle will be for whom to send the raffle item and what charity and check the charity out as well hope this helps melissa, if its legit then ok but most certainly i would not depart with anything unless legit maybe there has been a newspaper editiing about her daughter or raffle etc
Yes, I had it..and I deleted it...my instinct tells me it's a scam..and, if it isn't as scam it's a shame because it looks like one. There is no proof of anything ..nothing you could verify..it wasn't even signed by anyone.
I won't get involved in this kind of thing...it looks decidedly dodgy to me. I think that this kind of thing doesn't help anyone in the long run.
Isn't there some police site you can send the email to?
I had a fake paypal the other week. It was very professionally done. But was missing one piece of detail, so I looked on my paypal site to see if it was from them but couldn't find anything resembling so I sent the email to Paypal and a few days later they said thankyou that is was not a legitimate email. I gather they give the email to the federal police and they take it from there.
What this 'raffle' person is doing is fraud and I gather that is a federal offence?
So don't just delete/ignore it. Send it to the police.
as ex police i would firstly never send a reply to these awful emails and maybe phone the police not on there emergency number obviously... and ask to report it they will then give you an incident crime ref number and look into it i dont think there is a department that you can send these through as they woulkd be totally bogged down with this sort of email but it is definately worth repoting in this case as fraud regards melissa
I did not get that one, but another one. My reply is always that I do all my charity donations thru Mission Fish on Ebay.
In order to be registered with Mission Fish they must be a registered 503c Charity organization registered with the government.
If it's a scam, that will most likely scare them off
