        Part of the trouble is these scammers use the names of legitimate lottery games and companies to lure their victims.  Don't be surprised if one day you get an email you won 2nd prize in the Lotterypost lottery.  It is very possible a free lottery game sold this person's name on a mailing list of lottery players to the scammers only to be used in the swindle.  It is also possible the scammers start their own free lottery game and everyone "wins" . . .  BobP

                She probably was a little old lady.

                  You don't have to be smart to save a potion of your pay check every month.  I think it would be dumb to work all you life and not have saved anything.  A lot of old people have some savings and are gullible and a lot of crooks know that.

                    Recently read an article that Nigerians are sitting in internet cafés dreaming up schemes to send us "rich Americans" because they perceive us as greedy, gullible and that our government will give us back the money they manage to bilk us for. 

                    Stats probably prove any impoverished nationality will try same, however we know Nigerian scams the best because of of those emails..... at least most of us do.

                    Good luck to everyone!

                      Really how many times did she need.  I guess her eyes were on the non existing prize and didn't care about anything else.  But give me a break.  Give that much money to that many people.  The scammers were probably having a hayday with her.  "She is actually doing it again!" they were probably telling themselves and just kept handing her information on to other people.  FREE LOTTERIES ARE ALWAYS FREE.  Why would you ever give someone that kind of money for a prize you didn't enter to win and for a prize in general.

                              Maybe she should get a cat! Then there would be someone smart in the house.
