They're getting craftier.  The lady that got snowed received letters from "President Bush", et al.  I would love to see these docs and see if they pass a cursory examination.  The heart of a good lie is a little bit of truth.

Of course, the linked story is over three years old...

There's got to be a catch somewhere - as CeeKay warned us the last time.

QUESTION: If you guys won the lottery, say $20,000,000 up front after taxes, would you randomly give away any of it? I'd probably donate a thousand to the top ten posters here or hit the "tip jar" of half a dozen bloggers whose work I've enjoyed over the years and I'd probably tip waitresses $50 regardless of the price of my sandwich and beer. But that's me: a modern day John Strange Rockefeller.

Must ... pad ... faster...

KD would be double-dipped as he's Top 10.  And I think Pete should be given special consideration for the density of his posts.

I think I'd set up a college scholarship program for strippers, but other than that and making sure my mom doesn't have to worry about a place to live ever again it's all mine! Well, all mine except for the half that my wife would demand.

We recently read of a woman who'd spent hundreds of thousands (allegedly) on, iirc, a Nigerian scam.  I really wonder if it's hope or desperation or cluelessness that motivates people to do such things.

In any case, I'd think thieves are probably making more money stealing identities than conning the occasional big money victim. I don't have any statistics but it seems likely that would be the "easier" way to steal because you don't need the vic's active cooperation.
