The January edition of “The Snitch” is out and the feature scam tip involves a twist on the lottery scam. Instead of the scam beginning with you winning the lottery, it’s based on someone else having won and now wanting to give away their newfound millions.
This very email was received by a friend of mine recently, someone who classifies himself as an “eternal optimist.” I, on the other hand, am always looking for ulterior motives. So, when someone sends out an email claiming to be from the man who won $338 million in a Powerball drawing, I get really suspicious. The email my friend received described a detailed process by which several worth recipients had been selected. The amount my friend was supposed to receive? $750,000.
Check out the full post in the January edition of “The Snitch.” You’ll get the details, including my offer of conducting a New Year’s Resolution hostage exchange. Sorry, but you’ll have to check out the newsletter to find out how I got to that one. Click here to open “The Snitch.”
