Recently the Stamford Connecticut Narcotics and Organized Crime unit spent a month investigating Soloman Muson and some of his friends. It seems they were running an illegal numbers game. He must have been a real Tony Soprano. After all, they spent a month doing an investigation. They seized his Mercedes and a bunch of cash. Oh ya, it was a 1997 Mercedes. And the cash? They found less than 3,000 dollars.
Small potatoes compared to the Big Boys who run scams like this one:
In 2008 Connecticut sold $998,147,892.00 worth of lottery tickets.
This is an actual ticket sold in Connecticut.
Here is another one. This ticket will set you back $30.00. For ONE ticket.
