    Ya they run raffles like this all the time but the tickets usually cost around $100 - $200 depending on the number of tickets available. You would need a pretty good lawyer if you were going to try and run a scam like that

    Many times the company that built the home raffles it. That way their costs are lower and it is easier to make your money back. A lot of times the money will go to a charity so they can get donations and sponsors to help pay for everything etc. It takes a lot of work but the tickets sell because it is worth a shot at a new house. Sometimes there is an agreement that you have to own the house for one year before you sell it.

    ***edit...sorry dating101...i was writing at the same time you were ;)

    You could make money off of this if you write in the TOS that you will only start the raffle after x amount of people join. Make it a number that would be hard to reach, I mean most average people wouldn't even read the TOS.

    Hmm yeah you could make a TOS or just don't accept money for the tickets. You get the VISIT! who knows they could click another add.

    Hahha or you could include a page that says SORRY OUR PAYMENT SYSTEM IS DOWN PLEASE TRY ONE another (aka any advertisement)
