A hoaxer that posted faked up winning Powerball tickets offering to share the winnings had over 2Million people try and get a piece of the action.
Nolan Daniels created a fake winning ticket for the famously high Powerball said he had won $239 million and if people posted a reply to him he would share the winnings with them.
Nolan promised one million dollars to a random person picked out of the list and I am sure even he was surprised that over 2million people posted begging for money with random stories about their hardship or some very thinly veiled congratulations just as an excuse to post a reply and be in the list.
The actual numbers were pretty obviously faked if you know what a real Powerball ticket looks like and he probably made it to look like that so it didn’t look like a real scam but more of an easy to spot prank. See image here
Users were still replying on Facebook trying to get in on the action and a share of the riches even while hundreds of internet sites debunked the fake win and said that it was fake.
