This is why it's probably a good idea for lotto winners to try to stay anonymous as possible.
We were one of hundreds (thousands?) of folks to write about the big lotto win for KNBC-TV staffer Jacki Wells Cisneros (read our post here). But the vultures are even finding their way here.
Check out an email I received yesterday from a French Yahoo! account:
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to ask you if i can get coordinates of Jackie Cisneros from you.Grateful if you can revert with her email address or phone number
Uh, yeah. Sure guy. It's that easy. (By the way, it probably *is* pretty easy to figure out Jacki's email address, by using NBC Universal email protocol. I'm sure she's already been forced to change addresses.)
Just, ahem, looking out for you, Jacki. Pal. Best of luck with those millions.
