    Does anyone know Raptor Power Garage, or familiar with the guy that runs that site? He is giving away another Raptor. This time he is not selling merch, but tickets at $200 a chance. Link below. No build sheer is given, and it looks like a 2017/2018 truck, but the rules says it’s a 2019.... something feels off.

    That smells like a scam. As soon as I logged on that site from your link, my "Fake Spot" app lit up with a warning.

    Potential Seller Issues
    Please research the seller because:
    Limited Internet presence
    Website is missing common professional website attributes

    That truck in the picture is NOT a 19. If it walks like a duck ................

    Fakespot, it works really well, especially on Amazon. Someone in here turned me onto it a few months ago. It will automatically give you warnings when it smells bullshit. https://www.fakespot.com/

    650 tickets at $200 each is 130k. At that ROI, I'll setup one of these right now!

    Half knowing that it’s probably BS, I did ask the guy some questions about the truck on a post to one of his Facebook posts and it took a while for him to respond, but the details were very limited. That was red flag number one. Red Flag 2 was in the rules link on the link above. Very limited details on the truck itself. He is basically doing a “Hey look at this cool truck you can win” deal when I wonder if it’s a salvaged titled truck that’s been repaired and he is flipping to make a buck.

    I really want a Raptor, but not that bad to throw away $200 on something that’s sketchy.

    Isn't considered gambling (since purchase is required) and therefore illegal? I know that raffles happen all the time, but aren't those an exception since the proceeds go to charity and the prizes are donated? Not sure.

    Besides it being a questionable/fake site, the Raptor pictured is clearly modded and likely to be used. Site is saying that the winner can choose Raptor +$10k or $50k. The Raptor is only worth $40k?
