lottery winner not handing out cash

HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania (WHTM) – In August 2017, Mavis Wanczyk won a jackpot of $ 758.7 million. After the Massachusetts woman won, several fake social media accounts with her name popped up
claimed she gave away money in exchange for personal information.

Four years later, new text messages are circulating claiming that Wanczyk is donating $ 5,000 to 200 random people chosen after a “spinball”. The message instructs the recipient to send a text message to a number to receive their money.

The abc27 investigators called the number in the SMS. The man who replied said we had to send our full name and email address and he would forward information so we could request a check or direct deposit.

When we identified ourselves as the abc27 investigators and asked if he could answer some questions, the man hung up. An hour later we tried to call again and the phone number was no longer working.

Security experts say you never open links in text messages from unknown numbers and never give out personal information to strangers.

Letter: The federal government is handing out cash to individuals who do not want it

L’absurdite ‘is French for “absurdity”.

The latest partisan absurdity to come out of Washington is putting the federal teat in the mouth of those who don’t need it. That is, checks for $ 1,400 each go to individuals earning up to $ 6,250 per month ($ 75,000 per year) or individual householders earning $ 9,333 per month ($ 112,000 per year). These numbers refer to the “Adjusted Gross Income” on your federal tax forms. These will only “expire” after $ 6,666 per month ($ 80,000 per year) or $ 10,000 per month ($ 120,000 per year) for individuals.

For those filing together, the full check amounts go to couples earning up to $ 12,500 per month ($ 150,000 per year). These “run out” at $ 13,333 per month ($ 160,000 per year).

At least the claim of our current POTUS to be bipartisan on issues of national importance has been exposed for what it was. I don’t have a problem with making decent payments to people who need it, but that’s absurd.
