        It is sad to think people actually believe this stuff and send money.  If I had a "lost relative" or something else promising me money, I would just tell them to deduct whatever expenses from my inheritance.  Whatever I receive is more than I initially had, haha!

            This story demonstrates a very good reason why we should have state lotteries. If all lotteries were banned, we would see more scams like this. Just like prohibition, which was a gift to the mob, if lotteries were banned, more "numbers games" such as New York had before it's lottery would flourish.

             

            Remind me, how is the "war on drugs" going?
