    I wish that I could log on to my FB account so I could debunk this nonsense.

      A $750 lesson. I really really really want to feel bad for her, but COME ON. There were about a million red flags here. At this point I can't even blame the scammers. They don't even have to try all that hard. I'm beginning to think scam artists will need to put THIS IS A SCAM in big block letters for people to stop sending their hard earned money in to these fake lotteries.

              She's lucky she only lost $750.  Others have lost thousands of dollars to these scams.

              As for the idiot a few posts up trying to bring politics into it, that wasn't the point of this story and it has no place here.

                Anyone who read the story should have the context.

                "Facebook Powerball" lottery? Endorsed by Obama, but he has to send the taxes to Africa? Oh. Well, maybe she's one of those idiots.

                  This story is proof that "what you sometimes read on the Internet is not always true." 

                  Why would  anyone believe that the President, who has more important duties and pressing issues, even endorse this kind of message, which should have been a "red flag" .

                  Sorry to read that she sent the crooks $750.00.     

                  Facebook is a marketing tool. MZ's concept of a "Friends" social media network  is a clever endeavor, that has made him millions to his credit but we should use some  common sense.

                      I say the same about mainstream media on tv.  "what you sometimes see on the tv news is not always true, or accurate"

                          Why would anyone not believe Obama didn't take time off from golfing, vacationing and fundraising for crooks to put his stamp of approval on this "phony" scandal?

                            Politics was an important factor in her decision as the alledged endorsement of Obama appeals to his base. Anyone who doesn't agree with the president's idiology would have quickly ignored the solicitation. The victim was probably aware of Barrack Obama's African heritage which is why she fell for the scam.

                            You're the clueless idiot who couldn't make the relevant connection in this story.

                              Those who oppose Obama would have known better. It's his supporters who feel he is looking out for them and is the main reason other than greed to fall prey to such a comical scam.
