Abraham Shakespeare (Part 1 of 2)
Quick note: the first 5 minutes of this episode is a correction and update on the Jack Family episode. Feel free to skip ahead if you skipped that episode.
In November 2006, a man named Abraham Shakespeare hit the jackpot in the Florida lotto. His good-heart led him to give and loan away a large amount of his winnings in short order. When a woman named Dee Dee Moore convinced him to sign his assets over to her to protect them from vultures, things went from bad to worse.
