JonB~~~:<~ Does any owner or Region know David Schaffer? Any news on his lucky raffle car? Anyone know if its still at Woodhouse Dodge?

Rule states "Winner must take delivery within 90 days of when the vehicle is complete.'' I bet the car has been built for more than 90 days.....

Tire winner DID get his tires......

1. David Greenleaf Ticket #527

2. David Schaffer Ticket # 1508

3. Mark Edwards Ticket # 1858

4. Keith Sitton Ticket # 2309

Unfortunately, after the tickets were drawn, the VCA learned that Mr. Greenleaf was ineligible to participate in this raffle. He has been contacted about the reasons for his ineligibility, has acknowledged that the VCA’s position is correct, and has graciously agreed to not claim entitlement to the car under the circumstances. We applaud Mr. Greenleaf for his professionalism in this regard.

Accordingly, and although there is no rule or precedent for how to proceed under such circumstances, the VCA BOD has unanimously agreed that the second place winner, David Schaffer , should be moved into first position and receive the 2013 SRT Viper. Congratulations to Mr. Schaffer !!

Correspondingly, Mr. Edwards , will receive the second place prize, and Mr. Sitton , will be awarded the third place prize.
Finally, with only three winners for four prizes, the VCA BOD also unanimously decided to draw another name for the fourth place prize. That name was drawn, and the winner of the fourth place prize is Mr Steve Loudin Ticket # 465 .

Congratulations to all the winners!

Lee Stubberfield, VCA President




WHY IS LEE STILL MAKING PRESIDENTIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS???

My intention was not to be dismissive. There was some humorous intent involved. Perhaps because I am not one of the "in" crowd here, that was unwelcome. I can understand that. I know the rules.

And that is why there are very strict rules for raffles - such as, tickets must be delivered before the drawing, and rules that regulate where and how the drawing can take place, etc. All of that is designed to prevent exactly this type of thing.

You can dismiss Tony as paranoid and biased, however the fact is the raffle was illegal, and the VCA were told what they were doing (by the Michigan authorities) that was unacceptable, and rather than stop that behavior, they chose instead to continue that behavior and ditch the legality of the raffle.

It's also quite coincidental that a few years back the wife of the guy who is getting $5k a month to store the Viper parts won the raffle. What are the chances that one of the thousands of tickets sold, one of the good ol' boys wins? Pretty amazing coincidence, I'd say.

I think Tony has every reason to be skeptical. And the burden is and should be on the VCA to address the concerns of it's members, not the other way around.

If you don't actually get the tickets, you are taking them at their word that your tickets were in the barrel and "winnable".

This is what they just sent me.. It's ok ... I won't ever enter a raffle again .. Lost 300 but I learned my lesson ...all I have proof is Viper Tony.. Prior to drawings I sent him an email saying I never received raffle tickets as of yet . It was a few weeks before raffle was being drawn. Tony told me two batches will be released. One was the earlier batch I never received and one batch of tickets coming out in Aug18 if I'm correct on the date. I was thinking Aug18 I would receive . We nothing in my hands but the VCA membership .. Thanks for trying Tony appreciate the help . Tony has been trying to get me the mail date . Unfortunately with the BS that's going on there I doubt he will get it

I thnk YoT won't have any problem getting his $$$ back. He has it in writing that he was not entered into the raffle.

In all cases during the investigative phase cardholders will be credited the amount from the card issuer. If the merchant has some level of proof the charge was valid. Then the cardholder may see their account debited in the future.

If there is no proof of sale from the merchant, the card issuing bank will attempt to collect funds from the merchant.

The credit card companies do about 1 millionth of the investigations people expect them to

Amex will put a hold on VCA's merchant account for the $300, then they will send them a notice of chargeback and some forms to fill out, which don't really ask their side of the story, they really just want proof that the merchandise was delivered or the service was rendered.

Since they probably have no tracking number, I bet you get your refund. It might be different for a raffle where there was technically a product (tickets) and a service (entry into the raffle).

If Amex comes back and tells you that they can't refund you, then I would get something from the Maryland gaming commission (if they have one?) or something that proves it wasn't legal. Then as said above it's not just "I didn't get what I paid for" but a more serious "I was scammed". I'd also contact law enforcement and, hell, file a mail fraud complaint too since the illegal raffle was prosecuted by mail.

I used the word prosecuted on purpose - a little double entendre

I would be curious to see what is in writing between national and the regions? JonB said in another thread that the regions should send demand notices to national. I think he is right about that. National seems to treat it as money they will give to the regions whenever they feel like it. But it seems that the regions are entitled to that $$$, and National is being extremely unethical in withholding it.

If that's true, then national still owes the money regardless of what happens with chargebacks. If they robbed peter to pay paul - i.e. took member dues and spent them wholly without remitting the regions' portion, then I wonder if the law needs to get involved.

If there where they would have had the numbers posted up for everyone to see and I would have had them in my hands. It's not about the 300 dollars it's about the fact that I had a chance Like everyone else to win the car. Unfortunately this bullshit drama happened to the VCA and everyone got fucked over for the clowns that run the place
I think you should definitely get a refund... You have proof that you weren't included in the raffle and didn't get tix...

the rest of my text is about whether the raffle was legal and asking the card companies to make a determination of said raffle.
