Just received 2 NXT from: NXT-8GBH-AGEN-C424-2XW86
with alias: RAFFLE and NewsStory.
and the note that I won a raffle.

I never entered one so this is a marketing campaign to get people to play the game, or at least visit the website: Raffle.pw.

Raffle Instructions
Send at least one NXT to the alias NXTRaffle
After the minimum # of participants has entered and the minimum amount of NXT required to start the Raffle are met, the 8 left most digits of the transaction id for each entry will be MOD'ed to determine the winner in a PROVABLY FAIR way. The winner will receive the entire jackpot minus 1 NXT for sending the winnings.

Asset
There is an asset to go along with this raffle:
Asset ID:1480975327548296356
Asset Name: RAFFLE

Their are 100 shares listed at a price of 200000.

It is not clear how a profit is made for the asset, perhaps the rules will change when there are enough players.

Why did you even bother to make a thread on this ? I really dont see why you would need to publicize this, unless you are the issuer.
This would be the only job the asset issuer has to do.

Perhaps, assets like this are clear attempt to part users from their coins.

If there is nothing in the forum about the asset then there is no way for you to say it is a scam. Unless of course you start your own thread :)

I do not know how you operate, but when I receive a strange asset or a unexpected payment I try and work out why. I search the forum. When there is nothing in the forum I start a thread to save others the time duplicating the same work. Instead we can move on to the 'is it a scam and why' conversation. So when others do their research they can make better decisions.

The only extra work is responding to you :)

There seem to be legit reasons why someone would not start their own thread, language/communication skills and a desire to avoid conflict being two. They do not make the asset a scam, they do make it more likely to be a scam however.

When some one has checked out the website registrations and watched the raffle account to see if it is paying out, then we may be able to say it is a scam.

Although I think it is quite clear I do not represent RAFFLE, to avoid any doubt, I state here that I have no connection to RAFFLE.

CasinoTool info: Starting the Testcase Weekly W1 lottery was easy as 1 2 3. You need really nothing, just an account, not even tools, not even a client. Everybody can start one and use the API. And this everywhere in the world, it's international, who can stop this. This is GREAT.

This means that betting using "NXT INSIDE" is probably unstoppable, even if the establishment is confronted now with a big loss of revenues.

Now, the real question will be, how do we rate them ?

Hey all, yeah, that was me, and yes, it is marketing.
I'll send some more entries your way to prove it was me.
Thanks for posting!
