Ottawa Woman Wins $250,000 from Nigerian Prince

November 27th, 2016

OTTAWA, IL – In what can only be described as remarkable luck, a local Ottawa woman was informed via email Saturday that she had won $250,000 from a Nigerian Prince, named Al.

Ottawa native, Mary Johons contacted The Cob early Saturday morning after discovering she had an unread notification in her junk Gmail account.

“This is so exciting. Emailing Al back, he said that if I send him one thousand dollars I can claim my prize. He said his rich uncle Bob left him $2.5 million and he wants to share it with people.” Mary remarked.

“I’m heading to Western Union to send the money as soon as this interview is over.” Mary continued.

As for her winnings Mary stated, “I’ll probably just spend it all at Wal-Mart.”

The Cob wishes everyone good luck in the future, may we all be as lucky as Mary.
