  1. I know your an enthusiastic reader but did you know the scam is based upon a real author (http://www.amazon.com/Lottery-Patricia-Wood/dp/0399154493)? Found where she became aware of the scam and posted on her blog back in 2010 (http://pkwood.blogspot.com/2010/08/you-cant-get-something-for.html). These things just never die!

  2. LOL, Ken, no, no, I had no idea she was a real person. Isn’t that what makes a scam work? Put in something that is true, that can be checked? Then the target bites? Thanks for the update, that is really fascinating.
