My wife and I stopped in to see an elderly widow friend the other day, She had just gotten off the phone and was SOOO excited , She said "Publishes Clearing House just called her and told her she had won 80 million dollars and a new car. All she had to do was to bring him $500 cash and meet him at Rite Aid parking lot and he would start the paperwork to give her the money and car. She probably would have gone for it if we did not convince her it was a SCAM. Beware of strangers bearing gifts !

Greed is powerful.........

When you appeal to the Greed in people, you can get them to do crazy things..........things they would not ordinarily do.....
