I found two suspicious ads for raffles to win a camper/truck/class A motor-home in the January 2012 issue of Trailer Life. On pages 64 and 66 are ads for raffles-$100 each-for alleged charities; on page 63 the "Wyoming Paintbrush" , an alleged non profit that has no website other than a single ad for the same raffle as found in Trailer Life, and on page 66 is a similar raffle for "SLP charities."
It took me less than a minute, using on-line BBB, that SLP charities is a scam. Because I cannot find anything to support the legitimacy of "Wyoming Paintbrush", I suspect it is also a scam; I'm awaiting a callback from the Consumer Protection Unit of the Wyoming Attorney General's Office regarding this suspicion.
If their advertising department is unable to verify that these ads are legitimate, then how is anyone to know if any article or ad is legit? What's worse is that the BBB report on SLP dates back to 2008.
