This is not the Facebook page of Mega millions’ winner Ira Curry. The telltale signs? Only two friends and the fact that she just joined seven hours ago. (There’s that perfect number 7 again!)
Who wins more than $100 million and refuses to talk to the press but then joins Facebook – the largest social network around? Nobody, that’s who. But that hasn’t stopped opportunists from posing as the newly rich woman and accepting friend requests.
This Cleveland Pop Culture reporter and her husband always talk about not going public after a big lottery win. Thankfully, in the state of Ohio, we wouldn’t have to go public. We could remain just as quiet in claiming our lottery winnings as church mice.
In the meantime, whilst people are setting up fake Facebook pages, posing as her and doing God knows what with the people who are her new friends, Ira Curry's sisters fear for their life, says this article about the Georgia lottery winner's family talking about their inner city conditions.
There are already other facts about her being disclosed that explain her lucky number's special meaning and the fact that she and her husband previously filed for bankruptcy.
Ah, the life of a lottery winner. Oh well, as soon as she satisfies any tithing, taxes and other debts, at least Ira can disappear with her family to a safe place and enjoy those funds.
Thank you, Jesus, indeed, as her “fake” Facebook poster wrote. Good on you.
