Never heard of that show.

 

I assume he received a federal sentence, so he will not get any good time off or parole.  So he was an outstanding police officer too?  He'll get his own special area(s) because prisoners do not like police inmates.  I bet he'll get sent to the same place Martha Stewart did...a federal clubhouse prison.

    LO L    I personally believe he should do no Jail time. Any greedy idiot that is willing to fall for such a scam deserves to be parted from his/her money. If you did not enter a lottery then you  know you haven't won, especially if you have to send money which is a huge red flag. The so-called victims should go to jail for being a part of a scheme.

    Well. Just send the victims to jail.
    That's a new one. That should really cut down on crime.
    If there's no "victims" left, the criminals won't be able to commit any crimes.

    CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

    A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

      Oh please, these people are NOT victims. I don't buy into it for one second. They were well aware of what they were doing when they handed their hard earned money over to these scammers. Nobody put a gun to their heads and demanded the money, they did it willingly because they were  a bunch of greedy fools. 
       
      These so-called ''lottery victims''  had full control and knowledge of what they were doing and I'm sure a lot of them thought to themselves that it may be a scam, but took the chance on ''what-if''?. They want sympathy and want to be looked at as victims so bad that they refuse to consider that they might be the reason they are responsible for their own behavior and are now pennyless or have loss A LOT in saving.
       
      I've seen something on TV before similar to this where people sent hundreds of thousands of dollars and multiple transactions till they depleted their retirement accounts for the hope of receiving millions. Doctors, lawyers, teachers..educated people..falling for these scams. lol 
       
      They do not get to have a victim status. Real victims are victims of stolen identity, rape, murder, police brutality...etc, something beyond their control.
       
      You don't get SOMETHING for NOTHING.
       
      No sympathy on this end.
       
      Free the scammers, lock up the so-called lottery victim!
      If there were no greedy fools, the scammer would have no one to scam! :)

        so, because you are a victim, you should go to jail?  Really?  Why? Senior citizens have worked hard all their lives.  They have aged and as a part of that. Process, their brains dont work that well.  Brain fog on simple terms.  These people prey on them because of this.  That is why most scams are against the elderly.  Hope you dont have to experience this but then ahain sometimes it takes experiencing it to understand.

        Being a Senior Citizen doesn't excuse one from being a  fool or able to think clearly... UNLESS, you have dementia or some other cognitive problems going on otherwise there's absolutely no excuse. I should know, I'm an RN and I'm around seniors daily and a lot of seniors I'm around are very witty and very alert just like the rest of us.

        The only excusable people who would truly be victims are  elderly people with dementia or the mentally impaired. But if they are at that stage then they shouldn't be handling their own finances.

        A little jail time for the so-called lotto victims wouldn't hurt. I believe those that were scammed are just as guilty as the scammers and should be locked up in the same cell.

        How on earth do you expect to receive millions if you've never played the lottery? And who has heard of the lottery asking you to send money to them in order to win your prize? I would have told them to take it out of my lottery share...LO L  A lot of these people, not just seniors, sent multiple transactions to the scammers.

        I would think after the first transaction  you would stop after you haven't received anything, but the scammers sweet talk you and paint a pretty picture and have you suckered till you have nothing left to send them.

        Then the SCAMMERS number is all of a sudden disconnected and you come back to reality and call yourself a victim and want justice. LOL

            Oh yeah, I almost forgot I was a victim once....almost.  I was a unemployed teen looking for work in early 2000s when I saw a job on MONSTER....it was work from home and all I had to do was cash checks from customers and send it back to this art gallery company and keep 10% for myself. I would have supposedly made $4000 per month working part time cashing checks. I deposited the checks and it cleared...I let the scammer know it cleared, he kept pressuring me to send him the $ via western union and he would send a batch of more checks out for me from his clients all over the world.  I waited 8 days when I got a call from the bank telling me the check had bounced. I would have been pissed had I sent/spent the money..lol but instead I deposited the $ back into the account. closed it. and opened another one and became very due diligent and stayed away from things that sound too good to be true. 

            When I learned it was a scam I played with the scammer for a few days and told him his money was waiting for him.... till he left a nasty message and blocked me. I just wanted to waste his time like  he did mine..lol

                This guy will do it again. That's why they should tattoo "American" on his forehead and dump him in Syria.

                NICE!!!

                    Sully, I thought the lyrics were "Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?"?

                      I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!
