Jeromie Williams Eats The Internet For Breakfast
A Facebook profile belonging to Nolan Daniels, with a photo claiming to have a winning Powerball ticket has fooled over 1.4 million people into thinking they might be selected as the “winner’s” one million dollar random recipient by sharing his photo.
The photo which was posted on November 29th, 2012 claims to show Nolan Daniels holding a winning Powerball lottery ticket and an offer that far too many people have fallen for:
Looks like I won’t be going to work EVER!!!! Share this photo and I will give a random person 1 million dollars!
The joke however is on everyone who fell victim to this internet hoax, because had any one of them cared to check, there is a huge and glaring discrepancy with the ticket that proves it is fake: Powerball tickets print the numbers in numerical order, and the ticket Nolan Daniels is holding does not follow that rule.
Take a good look at the photo at the top and you’ll see the numbers shown as 22, 29, 23, (something that could be 16 or 46), 5, and a bonus number of 6 – numerical order be damned. Following is a picture of a real Powerball lottery ticket with the numerical orders intact.
So there you have it folks. Nolan Daniels does not have a winning Powerball ticket, and you’re not going to win a million dollars for sharing his photo. You’ve all been trolled, by a troll, who is now the mayor of troll land in Trollandia.
