Stupid or what?

An elderly lottery addict called Chang, who lives in the southern Taiwan city of Kaohsiung has fallen prey to fraudulent lottery scams 11 times in two years, reports Earth Times.

The 66-year-old man, believed it was true every time he received notification that he had won a big lottery prize, police said.

"He has been cheated 11 times and swindled out of 3.45 million Taiwan dollars ($100 000) in the past two years," a police spokeswoman for the police anti-fraud hotline revealed.

She said despite his record of being cheated, the man actually believed he could get all the money back if just one of the prizes would actually pay off.

"He kept coming back to report yet another fraud, despite our repeated persuasion that he must seek our help for clarification before wiring out the so-called 10 percent of the prize claiming tax," she said.
