        OK, I'll repeat the part that I wrote you, minus the guy's whois info.  Anyone can easily obtain that info anyway.  He's running a total scam outfit, and should be reported to the Ontario authorities.

        Here's my reply to your PM:


        Wow, I didn't realize the extent to which you got ripped off.

        No, that software will NOT give you access to a lottery's computers.  It only would give access to a computer which is specifically running the server-based component of that software, and I can guarantee that not a single lottery will be running it.

        Not to mention that the lotteries' computers that contain ticket information are not even connected to the internet, so there is no way for someone to access them over the Internet.

        Even if they plugged their systems into the internet, you would still have to gain access to several user names and passwords to get to the level of security necessary to affect database records.

          For those wondering, the software that the "cheat-at-lottery" web site points you to is the remote access terminal application found at http://tightvnc.com.  It is an open-source project sourced at SourceForge, a popular web site for open source projects.  No big shakes.

          The Ontario guy is charging people $60 to send them to that web site, where he says they should download the software and use it to hack into the lotteries' computers.  What an utterly shameless scam.

          No one should even pretend that they could hack into the lottery ticket databases with that software.

              No he's not, what are you talking about?  He's from Florida, and the guy selling it is from Ontario.

                Pacattack05 - I feel really bad now you wasted your money like that, what a scam! I wish I never mentioned it now, I suppose the only good thing to come out of this is that the guy and his scam has been exposed.

                  All those things are copies of the same system over and over.  They market this same stuf over and over to those who are looking for a silver bullet to win the lottery.

                  All those systems can be thrown in a heap of lost and broken lottery systems, as far as I'm concerned.

                  For a couple of bucks the person puts an Ad Sense ad on Google (which is where I'm sure the web site URL was found), and they haul a segment of people who buy these things.

                  The person who packaged it together probably never even played the lottery before, who can tell?

                  Who knows, maybe I should buy the thing, repackage it five different ways and resell it myself.  Anyone think I would make some money that way?

                  Let's do the banker's math...few people ever consider this, but after working in the banking industry for over 10 years, you oughta know about this side of it.

                  Joe Blow sells said system for 59.95...30 days 25,000 dollar guarantee.  Now, here's the deal, Joe Blow has your money for 30 days "guaranteed" and if his system fails, he's sure to pay you back (perhaps after a few banterings of "necessary proof" his system failed).  Now multiply this scenario hundreds of times a month over and over.  Man, I can't begin to tell you what kind of money you're talking in interest whether or not people even BOTHER with the refund.  My bank would invest money OVERNIGHT with the FEDERAL RESERVE and make interest on tenths of a cent!!! 

                  So the other problem I have with this, is by his own admission, "I have more money than I'll need for a lifetime"...people who are "satisfied" with what they have don't typically charge for the information thats got them there. 

                  We can all be wrong (it would be cool to see Pacattack giving us all a good lesson in eating crow by posting win after win), but my gut feeling is, the real winner here is a slick businessman selling snake oil to the lottery enthused.

                  C.K.

                  One way to squelch this is to ask him for the interest on your money he had for 30 days as well.  People don't like it when you ask them to give you what you really lost.

                   

                   

                  If the eyes are the windows to the soul, let me see you without the shades drawn

                   

                  What's a Hades Bunny?  Well let's just say you don't wanna be jumpin' over MY back fence.  But hey, you ain't afraid a lil white rabbit now are ya?

                    Live and learn Wink

                    Smitty left Newfoundland and moved to Toronto and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

                    The following day, the farmer drove up and said, "I'm sorry, but
                    I have some bad news... the donkey died last night."

                    "Well, den" said Smitty, "Jus' give my money back, yeah."

                    "I can't do that sir, I went and spent it already."

                    "OK, den. Jus' unload dat donkey."

                    "What are you gonna do with him?"

                    "I'm gon' to raffle him off."

                    "You can't raffle a dead donkey, you dumb Newfie!"

                    "Well dats where you wrong. You wait an' you learn how smart we
                    Newfie's are!"

                    A month later the farmer ran into the Newfie and asked, "What
                    happened with that dead donkey?"

                    "I raffled dat donkey off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars
                    apiece and made $998."

                    "Didn't anyone complain?"

                    "Just dat guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

                    if at first you don't succeed ... destroy all evidence you ever tried  Cool
