My thought is this - If I get a letter saying that I won a large amount of cash but need to send money to pay taxes or processing, I say if this is real, take the fees and taxes out of the winnings and send me the rest.  I don't have to pay anything.

Bagent, They have prepared answers for every reply you give them. Scammers, in general, are professionals at what they do. These conmen and conwomen are hungry and desperately need your cash for drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, gambling, etc.

 When you win the Lottery you will be contacted by these crooks. It will be difficult to tell the difference between a legitimate request and an illegitimate one. The simple two letter word NO will go far.

        "What a dumesh" , priceless. It's old time Russian m@f:@ tactics. Still happens. I wonder how many people he tried to do that do in the first place. And how he got informaton about those people. Iowa-Buffalo. What's the connection? 

        "Other people taking care of older peoples monies for them.."

        Nursing home facilities do this all the time for the elderly that they are supposed to be taking care of, and they "double dip" them all the time also. They steal from them for the same reasons that others do. Because they consider them old and weak and worthless. And I think it's a shame. That UPS driver should be commended. A smart and good person.

          Glad that a crime was prevented, but I was wondering the same thing cbr$. We'll probably never find out. Even though there are privacy concerns, UPS does have the right to inspect packages according to their internal security protocol, especially given all the illegal activity they unintentionally facilitate.

          Our 2nd class in Pick 3 Lore was Space-Timing The Next Draw and we found the Lottery LoreKeeper, Tatiana, staring through her telescope, while we covertly giggled about what does Planet X have to do with what my next draw is? The sleuthy sage quietly intoned, "It is known that when the light(information) from such a distant object reaches our eyes, we are seeing the object as it was in the past & not as it appears Now in the present. Isn't this true for all things, especially numbers, that were drawn years, months, weeks or even just a day in the past? To accurately find the next draw, use the Law of Now(Tatiana's Pillar)". We never giggled again.
