I just won a charity raffle, and I know that businesses often unload stuff they couldn't sell as prizes.
I won 2 watches with a supposed value of over $1000. The men's watch (although ugly and 2 years out of date) still seems to have a retail value of $300-400 (close enough) and is loaded with features and a good warranty. The women's watch (also...uh...unique) is seemingly 8 years old and retails at Macy's and on Amazon for about $125. There's a warning to not even let water near it. It's junk.
Obviously I'm going to take them and say thank you, but is there such thing as raffle fraud? Would I be an awful person if I made a snide remark or asked for an extra watch strap or two?
(EDIT: I sent a thank you email to the charity. They gave me the certificate. I get the items at the store. In no way will I be asking the charity for anything.)
I know. Gift horse. Mouth. (Extra bitter because I'm getting the women's watch. And I like watches.)
