Congratulations on your windfall my friend.

My name is General Winston Nobango and i have recently been appointed to a position of Director of Redevelopment for the National Bank here in Nigeria. Due to a loophole, i would like your assistance in processing $37,000,000 through your bank account. If you will only supply your bank details, i will be able to reward you with a $10,000,000 payment for your assistance.

I await your kind response.

The most I've won is £150 on one of those late night quiz shows.... that take over tv stations after midnight, was about 6-7 years ago.

The question was films staring Nicolas Cage and I called up and answered "The Weather Man" as the "man" bit was already there.

We phoned about 20 times at a cost of £1 per call before getting through so was expensive but won £150 so was well worth it.

Was very late at night and was pretty drunk and have never even watched those things since.

I won $10,000 on a $2.00 scratch ticket. But, I've put ten times that back in to try and win more.

WOW!! No way! Amazing! What was your reaction when you saw the $10,000 and how long did i take to sink in you won? Did you get a lump sum & how much after taxes? These scratchers I'm playing here are a new Monopoly game scratcher with a $20,000 dollar jackpot. They are really cool.

I remember - a couple years back - there was this "lottery" on eBay where you could scrape Santa Claus Nutbag

Even though that does sound wrong, I did win 50 Bucks !

The ticket showed five dollar signs, which is an automatic win, with $2,000 under each $. Of course my reaction was NO BLEEPING WAY! I didn't even have a job at the time, so it was really a good feeling. I don't know how much the taxes were because I gave it to my sister to cash in, so I split it with her. She owned a house and was able to write off the taxes on the ticket somehow.

This was about 15 years ago, so I'm not exaggerating when I say I've put ten times that amount back in to try to do it again. I have won $2,000 and a couple $1,000's. But, all in all I have to say that it's really not worth it. No matter how much you win (unless it's millions) you will always come out a loser in the long run.

I won't say how much I won, but everytime I won I had car problems or medical problems that sucked up any profit.


Gotta say I'm leary of scratch 'ems nowadays.

I still consider myself lucky though. Without those winnings, I would be in serious debt.

I've heard that the lottery and scratch-offs were a tax on people who can't do math.


Congrats on your Tax Rebate, however.
