Gullibility knows no bounds...national or otherwise.
There was a story in my local paper here in NJ a few weeks ago about a man (senior citizen) who was absolutely convinced that he had "won" one of those fake lotteries & kept sending in money to "certify" or "authenticate" or "process" his winnings.
He absolutely refuses to listen to his grown kids or wife that he's being scammed by these people. His wife has now taken his name off any bank accounts they co-own & gives him an "allowance" each month that he can spend as he pleases...even to paying these hucksters MORE money!!!
