Description

Lotteries have become a major source of revenue for cash-strapped governments. They have also become a major target for con-artists, telesharks and boiler-room operators who offer elderly Americans access to lottery markets they wouldn't normally have, and then take them for every cent they can. The Vancouver Sun set out to peel back the layers of World Project Management Ltd. and to put a face to the man who runs the operaton. (Oct. 31, Nov. 1 - 3, Dec. 22 - 23, 1995)
