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.

I Agree!It's greed.

    people  are  stupid,  because  they  are greedy.  they  deserve  to  get   scammed

    People do not  need to be stupid or greedy to be scammed... They just need to be human...See Ya!

      Holy, your comment can be taken out of context a little.

      chrissy16,

      Africa??? Need I say more

      //////////////////////////////

      LottoBoner,

      Perhaps those running the scam simply avoided saying 'Nigeria'.

      You're being way overly pc here.

      Too bad I don't make predictions but if I did I would predict this will trigger several non-pc replies from you.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        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.

        I agree, Drenick.

        Mediabratwurst likes to start political arguments by nitpicking any obscure comment to find something to complain about.

        It doesn't matter that Oblahblah was an integral part of the story. He doesn't want anything negative about him to be allowed to be mentioned anywhere, ever.

        But the good part is, after you give mediabratwurst a good, sound thrashing, he goes away for a few months and everybody is happy again.

        It's the same thing with KY "Jelly Man" Floyd. They're like gnats.

          A sucker is born every minute, and that's not gong to change anytime soonDupe AlertChairEven though she got taken, she should consider herself lucky that she didn't get suckered for much more. I watch American Greed on CNBC, it amazes me how people get scammed for tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

              CT,

               While you are probably correct, only those "with an agenda" would try to twist it into something that it isn't or was never intended to be. Neither you or I can fix the gormless but it is funny sometimes. Kudos to you, sir !!

                Amazing.  Reminds me of my ex mother-in-law.  I could sell that blond woman ice in the North Pole and the thing is that I have no doubt she would repeatedly thank me for it afterwards.  She couldn't chew gum and walk at the same time.  Dumb as a rock.  Funny thing is she is married to an off the charts IQ guy who is an executive of one US senator's food processing plants.  Opposites attract I guess.

                    Your thinking is exactly what crooks figure as to justify stealing from people like her. Sad that (some) people think it is Ok to steal from hopeful people and that they must deserve it. NOT ok in my book. I hope you don't always believe they "deserve" it? A victim is a victim, and a crook is a crook, two separate people, two separate beliefs.

                            Yesterday I got a call from someone with an Asian accent saying I had been entered in a sweepstakes and won.  When I replied "so" they asked if I wanted to know what I had won and I said "No I'm not interested, you sound like a scam" and hung up.  Afterward I wished I had said "No and tell your cheap ass boss to spend a little extra to hire someone who speak better English, he might attract more suckers".
