ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — We all know that James Comey, much in the news of late, is very busy running the FBI.
But he was apparently not too busy to notify a Cloudcroft woman that she had won $1.5 million in a lottery.
In fact, the alleged Mr. Comey said in the recent email that his very busy FBI had taken time to investigate the prize and had verified it was legitimate. The lucky winner would get the money – as long as she wired $398 in advance, he told her. It was signed James Comey, with his photo.
The woman, who describes herself as a “75-year-young widow woman,” says during her 17 years in the banking industry she “had a lot of dealings with the FBI and (I) kinda remember how they work.” She didn’t recall the agency sending out lottery notices.
