How many people fall for emails about winning lotteries??

I'm watching Lottery Changed My Life and can't believe how many fall for the emails. These people send out emails for out of the country lotteries and expect you to send them money to cover taxes. Once you send them money they keep calling and asking for more. Then you finally figure out that it's a scam they start to threaten you. This one woman on the show pretty much emptied out the bank account and was pawning family jewelry to send money. Even after her DH tried telling her it was a scam.

  • Geez, I can't believe people still do that. Hell, if I won the real lottery, it would take several people to convince me I wasn't dreaming!

  • The woman gave them like $750,000. She ended up getting a nasty divorce from her DH. For what some jerk living in Florida with ties in Jamaica. Not worth it. I send all of those email to spam folder and delete them. If you have to send money to get money that should be the clue that it's a scam.
