    Oklahoma Professor GETS SH0T In The Foot After Winning The BIG Lotto Prize!

    This is hilarious!



    You should visit this dude's web site and listen to his story for a high one! TheLottoBlackBook.com.

    As one observer points out, "... all those pictures of fancy cars and people with their faces blacked out as they accept big checks with their names blacked out are real convincing!"

    ScamBuster over on The Scam & Spam Report decided to look a little more closely at this story...

    "This is one I decided to take a little closer look at. Usually, I’ll just post these spam messages up, make a few comments and leave it at that, hoping to tip others off to be careful about any kind of e-mail “offers” they receive.

    This one, like all the rest, reeks of scam in my opinion. I decided to visit the website promoting this product, and a lot of it is pretty typical, except for one interesting fact I noted that further suggests the story is bogus.

    The guy claims he was accosted in a shopping mall parking lot by two armed men who demanded that he reveal his “secret” to winning the lottery. Just reading that should have red flags popping up and alarm bells ringing! Yes, yet another “secret” system that will make you rich! Yawn. What else is new?

    Anyway, the story goes on to claim that he was eventually forced into a car by the gunmen who then fled when the they were alarmed by an approaching ambulance. As our hero makes a run for it, he is shot in the foot by the evil gunmen!

    Here’s the problem: Anyone who knows anything about firearms will easily identify the bullet that this joker was supposedly shot with as a rifle bullet. Are we to believe these bad guys were walking around the mall parking lot wielding a rifle? As most people know, they are rather hard to conceal.

    Furthermore, he claims he was forced into the car at gunpoint. I know from personal experience that getting a rifle in and out of an automobile is a bit awkward, and is certainly not the weapon of choice for holding someone captive in close quarters. Way too easy to grab onto.

    The gunman must have also been very agile in order to maneuver that rifle out the window of the car and fire a shot at the fleeing lottery genius as he sprinted away. It must have been a very quiet day at the mall if he was not able to run behind other vehicles in the parking lot rather quickly!

    I suspect someone screwed up, and used a handy picture of a rifle bullet that they managed to find on the internet somewhere or something.

    And all those pictures of fancy cars and people with their faces blacked out as they accept big checks with their names blacked out are real convincing, too! Never saw anything like that on the internet before!

    Bottom line. Just another crock of crap for a get-rich-quick “system” that will do nothing except extract $34.95 from your wallet. Oh but do hurry! He’s only making 1,000 copies available for sale! Yeah, and I walked on the moon with Neil Armstrong!"

    Kinda ranks right up there with multiple, alleged, unverifiable 'death threats'

    Lenny's life on the run from the mafia while hiding in the really tacky tract house with a public addresss is a hilarious tale! He should sell an internet book too. That might be his key to riches!

    I have just checked today Sunday, December 12, 2010 and there are 134 copies available. I think this will vanish in a day or two. If you’re committed to give it a try, why don’t you purchase a copy right now?

    I find it to be a bit too simplistic when they go thru so much trouble to make this all up on a website, and then use code that is able to be viewed by simply clicking on VIEW and selecting SOURCE...

    Reading down the page (or search for things like "134" (the number of books still available) The following is a portion of the source, it reveals that there are two variables, you're right, there would be a couple of variables... but one of those variables should have the count remaining... but below you will see the text that follows the end script (</script>) which includes:

    and there are 134 copies available.
    var mydate=new Date()
    var year=mydate.getYear()
    if (year < 1000)
    year+=1900
    var day=mydate.getDay()
    var month=mydate.getMonth()
    var daym=mydate.getDate()
    if (daym<10)
    daym="0"+daym
    var dayarray=new Array("Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thu rsday","Friday","Saturday")
    var montharray=new Array("January","February","March","April","May"," June","July","August","September","October","Novem ber","December")
    document.write("<small><font color='000000' face='Arial'><b>"+dayarray[day]+", "+montharray[month]+" "+daym+", "+year+"</b></font></small>")

    </script>

    and there are 134 copies available. I think this will vanish in a day or two. If you're committed to give it a try, why don't you purchase a copy right now? </p>

    There's one way to put a stop to scams like this. Buy a copy and spread it around everywhere. When people use Google to find more information, the first thing they'll see is "Why pay this creep $x.xx when you can get it HERE for free?"

    Normally, I don't condone piracy, but this seems justifiable.

    This is so obviously a scam it doesn't deserve much time, but I'll bet OK police don't have a gunshot report from this guy, or if they do it was self inflicted...! Can't tell caliber from the pic, but it is obviously an FMJ rifle slug of some kind. Notice he said "masked men" but the sketch is without a mask., he blots out his name but clearly states it's "Larry Blair". He also said he kept running after getting shot in the foot, but I'm having a hard time with that also. A 223 or a 308 FMJ would have destroyed the foot and likely not remained in the foot, too much penetration. That slug looks like it was pulled out of a sand bank or end grain log, almost no damage.

    I don't know if anyone pointed this out either, but there is another problem with the bullet besides being a rifle round. It has such a good shape, because it has a full metal jacket which cannot be sold to civilians. You will not find full jacket rounds available at any gun store or show, because they are military rounds only. Now, that does not mean criminals won't or cannot get them, but they are known as "cop killers" and are pretty expensive stuff for a couple of street thugs.

    Welcome to the forum, hellas.

    Perhaps he was mistaken.

    Perhaps the bad guys didn't shoot at him with the rifle.

    They might have just thrown the bullet at him and it hit him in the foot.

    Otherwise, how could a full metal jacket round from a rifle at relatively close range remain lodged in his foot and, what's more, remain undamaged.

    I'd just LOVE to know how many books the "professor" claims to have sold.

    You gotta give it to him, though.

    The story is at least original.
