97: Abraham Shakespeare: Heart of Gold

In 2006, a man named Abraham Shakespeare won Florida’s $31 Million Dollar Lottery. Poor and illiterate, Abraham took the lump sum pay out without any financial advisors helping him. First he took care of his family and friends. Then he started helping strangers. Soon, he was so harassed by his community asking him for money, he isolated himself. And was he no match for a grifter named Dee Dee Moore who quickly manipulated him and took over his life.
