As we had know, lottery scams do not just stop after the victim bite the first bait. After losing the money to the first scammer, the scams would multiply on the same victim subsequently. Owen is smart to have stopped dealing with the scammers, but earlier cases indicated others continued to be scammed repeatedly hoping to see their “winnings”.
We like this part (after getting scammed once and receiving floods of scams hoping to rip him dry):
“Mr. Owen, you’ve just won $750,000,” the man said. “Do you know what that means?”
“Yes,” Owen replied. “It means it’s over $10 million I’ve won since January.” Click. The caller hung up.
