Somehow I feel slighted by this poor attempt at criminality ... like being hit on at a party, but by the dumbest and ugliest girl in the room.

As stoopid as the crooks may be, there are people even stoopidder who will fall for such a transparent scam. They are, unfortunately, the same people who would be flattered to be hit on by "party going dumb and ugly chick", have a one night stand with her, breed with her, appear on Jerry Springer against her, and raise the next generation of lottery players who will continue to fall for the same scam.
