    Florida lottery winner hoax.

    The 20-year-old Mega Millions Florida lotto winner Shane Missler isn't giving away his money.

    An online hoax is circulating claiming Shane Missler is willing to give away $5,000 to the first 50,000 Twitter followers who retweet and like his post.

    However, the fake account didn't belong to Shane Missler.

    Apparently, this is one of many fake accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and other media outlets.

    Thanks for the heads up. I can't believe anyone would be stupid enough to fall for this. Come on, 5000 just for liking/retweeting? Red flag! Red flag! If anything, if this were legitimate, he'd give checks hand to hand in person at a press conference or something.

    Why would anyone give such money for just liking or retweeting?

    Why does someone create a fake account and posting a fake news?

    It's hard to believe that you can get $5,000 just for liking and retweeting his post. Definitely a SCAM!
    Poor those people who believe this kind of tactics.
