If you have a dollar in your pocket there is someone out there who wants it and will go to great lengths to convince you to give it to them.

The Pursuit of the Almighty Dollar

Money is a major motivational goal for most people; we all strive to have a comfortable life without worrying where the next meal is going to come from. We all want to own a nice house and drive a nice car and have the finances to put the kids through college, early retirement and a foreign vacation or 2 every year.

Life's little luxuries come at a price and to be able to afford the good things in life is a dream come true for most people.

Wouldn't it be great if we didn't have to worry about those monthly bills, the overwrought, the rent, the electricity, gas or phone bills wouldn't it be wonderful if we could walk into that store and buy that item we have pined for since we first saw it in the window, wouldn't it be fantastic if we didn't have to scrimp and save to afford clothes for the kids or to get through Christmas and not keep paying for it until next Christmas.

Having enough money to lead a comfortable life is a dream most of us share and with today's rapid rising of the cost of living that dream is becoming more and more difficult to attain.

Get Rich Quick

The internet is a breeding ground for get rich quick schemes, with blatant promises of riches and quick success "I made over a Million Dollars While I was sleeping and it only took 5 minutes of my time" or " My Ebook will show you how to make a million dollars in 30 days" scammers are everywhere and they are always so kind to offer you product re-sale rights for a few extra Dollars, if their promise was truthful in the first place and you could make all of the money that they were promising, then Why on earth would you need to sell the product to other people?.

Email Scams every day I go into my email and every day there is at least one claim that I have won a lottery, that I have never heard of never-mind entered, or I have won a prize draw that I never entered, or someones rich uncle has died and they want to transfer money into my bank account before the Government of the country they live in gets their hands on it.

All of these schemes work on the belief that people are blinded by the lure of big money and if only one person in every million emails they send out responds they will have succeeded in their quest, the poor person who responds to these scam emails ends up losing their life savings because they gave the scammers just what the wanted, their personal banking details.

Riches Beyond Your Wildest Dreams

It isn't only the internet that offers pyramid scams or false lottery winnings, it also happens in real life, the mailman delivers innocent looking letters that could end up costing you your entire life savings.

One of the most recent scam snail mail letters is from a supposed Phsycic lady in Sweden who claims to be able to give you luck and fortune for a rather large fee she claims that famous celebrities are her regular clients and that she was solely responsible for their climb to fame.

If you have a dollar in your pocket there is someone out there who wants it and will go to great lengths to convince you to give it to them.

Stay away from the get rich quick schemes, beware those innocent looking emails and letters through your door, it will save you a lot of money in the long run.

by all means purchase your dream lottery ticket from an approved outlet the odds are low but there is a slim chance that you will win and it is fun to take part.

Friday, October 26th 2018 started out like most other days, only it was kind of special for me because I had bought my first home, I bought a home in Redfield, Iowa, and I was moving that day. Around noon-ish, the movers had left, my son-in-law had left and my sister was coming up to help me pack. I and my sister took a break for lunch. Since my car was full with moving supplies, the pair traveled in my sister's truck to Casey's General Store, where they bought coffee, pizza and some lottery tickets. "I got my lottery tickets and we went back out to her truck, I kind of just set those down at the foot in my purse — or so I thought — and didn't think of them again until Sunday morning.

On Sunday, a friend informed me that the winning tickets had been sold in Iowa and New York. When i went to look for the tickets in my purse, they weren't there. I called my sister, who found the tickets in her truck and sent me a picture of the numbers. I entered the numbers into the Power ball website, where winning numbers show up in red, and got a response of "red, red, red, red, red, red — jackpot." I won Three Hundred And Forty Three Million, Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars ($323,900,000)

I told my sister, Get that ticket, get in your truck and get up here now — and drive slow.

I want you to know that as I stand here today, marvelspelltemple@gmail. com is my source of winning. I met with Dr. Muna a strong Spiritualist whatsapp number +2348071660388. I was able to won the IOWA Power ball with his Trusted winning numbers I know the responsibility that I have to do good with this money, My life is changed forever.
