I received that a few hours ago via e-mail and I am THRILLED! I have instructed Mr Andrew Woolley to leave the cash (small denomination unmarked bills) in front of the Museum of Natural History in New York City in a big plastic bag (I'm thinking ahead, because the money will get heavy if it rains).

Almost exactly the same thing happened to me.

In my case, I bought one of those $1 Powerball lottery tickets one day. The next day, after they'd drawn all the numbers, I found that my ticket matched all six of them.

Well, like any twenty-first century, internet savy person... ...I know a scam when I see one. I tore up my ticket.

It's just like your mother always told you. "When something seems too good to be true, it probably is."

close call though.

I actually did have the winning six Lottery Numbers - 5 numbers + the supplementary. I called my family delirious with glee - all those paid mortgages and college tuitions. Went to the store where I bought the ticket and told Mr. Kim of my luck.

He was almost in tears when he had to tell me that they had changed the rules two weeks earlier. Five numbers plus the supplementary no longer won first prize. I ended up with a couple of thousand but not the multi-millions the day started out with.

On the other hand, the ex-king of some small African country is transferring millions into my bank account AS WE SPEAK. Poor guy needed a reliable friend to handle the transaction and I was recommended.

We got something similar the other day. Apparently, they kindly bought us a ticket and once we've given them our bank account (and every other) details they will take a small percentage before they pay in the money.

It's sad really because some people do fall for it.

A few years ago a friend of mine came back from holiday to find she'd won a couple of thousand pounds on the Pools. The cheque was in an envelope that looked like junk mail and she said that she very nearly tore it up without opening it.

The first time I spent a buck on a Washington State lottery ticket (which I've done maybe three times in the past umpteen years), I won!

Not the multi-megabuck main prize, but my ticket matched a couple of numbers in the right sequence and I won $10.00. Okay, I'll take it.

P. S. Ed McMahon still owes me ten million dollars at least! He kept sending me these letters saying that I had won, but he never has sent me the money. . . .

Atlantic Lotto has a game called PRO.LINE. You pick the outcomes of three to five sports events at the odds listed and your bet is multiplied by the odds of each if all your picks are correct.

A group of Albertans put a big sum of money together, flew to Halifax, and bought a whack of tickets... it was a lock. they had winning tickets for millions. Unfortunately, for them, they didn't read the rules regarding pool size, number of winners, and payout restrictions. Long walk home.

My brother was sitting at work one day when he got a call from "Guns" magazine (which he never reads) telling him that he'd won their monthly contest and he was the proud owner of a pair of Ruger Mk II pistols.

Okay........turns out he enters contests and mailed in an entry form from a magazine he'd found in a doctor or dentist's waiting room.

He arranged for the pistols to be shipped to a licensed dealer, had the requisite pictures tooken, and sold the pistols to help pay off the concrete bill for his new garage floor. Working, as he was at the time, for the State Police, he felt no need for more guns.

I love it when groups win & share. About a year ago a work crew from a meat packing plant won many, many millions. Think there were about 11 or 12 involved. All level headed, nice and with a work ethic. They kept mum & first went to a _good_ lawyer for instructions on how to proceed.

They kept their jobs until the company could retrain others to take their place. Some even stayed on the job permanently.

On the other hand, a homeless man won & spent it all giving & being taken. Now living in his brand new truck! Broke!

We got one really odd mailing from a catalog company several years ago. It guaranteed we were "winners". I skimmed the list of at least 5 prize levels. Even the 5th prize was at least something like a big
TV. I was about stumped for a while; this was an actual established business, and I couldn't figure out how they thought they could get away with what looked like such blatant fraud.
Finally I looked at the prize list again, more carefully. Almost everyone was to receive the third prize; it was a chip of polished rock, worth maybe as much as the mini-ziplock-bag it came in.
