2013. A new year. A new Facebook scam (of sorts).

Not that long ago a chap by the name of Nolan Daniels posted a doctored Powerball ticket on Facebook. In his original post, Daniels said he would give $1 million dollars to a single winner, chosen at random from those who were willing to share his original post.

More than 100,000 people fell for his prank, despite the fact the ticket was clearly doctored. So, what would happen if someone were to put up a convincing photo of a winning ticket? Enter Sokhavy Hilton.

Sokhavy Hilton: the new Nolan Daniels

Sokhavy Hilton claims he is a winner of a recent Powerball lottery and wants to share his new found wealth in a way that Nolan Daniels could only dream of. Rather than giving away a puny $1 million dollars, he has upped the ante: offering to give a cool million to each of ten lucky winners.

Sadly it doesn’t look as though people have learned anything from the Nolan Daniels affair and this image is appearing on my timeline at least once an hour.

  1. you should have checked the ticket number is that ticket is winner.
    The ticket’s date was in Nov 2012… .so he knows that he was not a winner.
