I just saw a news story about a local woman who lost $162,000 to a sweepstakes scam. Do you feel sorry for her, or is it just over-the-top stupidity? (Link in comments)

Naw... It's just the whiskey talking. Don't change in my account! I was out of line.

Hey no worries! I tend to drink and SOH sometimes, too... :) I think it's funny, Shemple/Shemale! I can see the similarity!

I just have a hard time imagining how anyone could send someone that much money before thinking maybe it's a scam. For that reason, I just can't feel sorry for them. It's sad that this happened, of course- but wow.

That's so sad. It sucks that we live in a world where one person is ok with doing that to another.

Seriously.. Regardless of whether it was her fault for not realizing it, there is still that other person stringing her along/taking advantage.

Both. She was stupid but I still feel sorry for her.
