Did you hear about sports betting in America won a major change came today and Supreme Court. The US Supreme Court today struck down a federal law that bars gambling on football basketball. Baseball and other sports in most states. Giving the states. Doesn't legalize. But he gives the states the go ahead to legalized betting. On sports well and senator Orrin hatch from Utah said look we're gonna put to Vator federal regulations on the so it's not a mission match. Patchwork of different laws across which it's going to be what you just let every statement for the ultimately you can bet on the tournament like let's say in Texas if you're down there for the weekend but that if you come back here on the lasted attorney you can. Right right now that makes perfect sense. I'm off work hodgepodge loss across. Mistakes. Orrin hatch is not it's amazing these republic of which I'm a member. These Republican states rights people looked straight to salt and pushed it still want to specialist. The very people say what are for all salute and applaud Paula jewels are also on Shana. Shut up let the states decide okay the Supreme Court ruled today six to three to strike down the professional and amateur sports protection act. The 1992 law barred state authorized sports gambling. With some exceptions are made Nevada in this weird in May Nevada the only state where a person could wager on the results of a single game. So you basically singled out one state and said you can do it and error. But she can't do it over here. Any candidate up there are down there. And one research firm estimated before the ruling that in the Supreme Court were to strike down the law 32 states. Would likely offer sports betting within five years how all fifty.

Vivian Murphy fought back to that heart stopping moment when the voice on the phone for claimed her the winner of a one point five million dollar sweepstakes prize. For decades Murphy who's 85. Big huge fan of the publisher's clearing house. The peddler of magazine subscriptions and household items widely known for TV commercials of winners dissolving and a happy tears. When presented with a gargantuan check. She entered nearly every drawing in the company's fifty year history during which lucky numbers or received more than 380. Million dollars. Murphy ship. And finally. Kind comments. Were so it's thing. She imagine paying off the mortgages of her children or grandchildren and setting up bank accounts for too little great grandchildren instead. She was scam. Cargo ability cost her 28000. Dollars. Says Vivian Murphy Palkot I've been sold to home. The woman who called Murphy is a professional scam artist. Merv recession like to see her in jail many of them call from outside the United States. When I dialed back one of the numbers used to call Murphy. Came up as originating in Kingston Jamaica. Murphy is a lifelong. Were Chester resident or words or less that questioner president. And retired nursing supervisor's among the thousands of people many of them elderly. We're preyed upon every year by silver tongue scant hours. Murphy. With the support of her daughter said she was willing to share her story because she wants to born. Others the caller. Introduced herself as Debra Holland. Which is a name that Murphy recognized because it appears on lots of letters that she gets. From the real publisher's clearing house. She said matter of factly in that first call there were taxes and fees. That need to be paid before Murphy can collector winnings Murphy would have to send the check for 890 dollars to begin the process of releasing. The one point five million dollar sweepstakes prize. Holland spoke in a pleasant comfortable as soon Murphy was sweetie and theory. Murphy wrote the check. Once the caller hatter looks and should in my go the next day it was 3000. To keep the process moving in the day after that 3800. Entries does. Week after the first call Hong called back first mourn for 5000. Men in the afternoon for another five. When Murphy center checking account was depleted the caller suggested she tap into her retirement. Now I want you to listen to this next part because this is worse gotten I disagree. Murphy called her financial advisor to make the transfer. The advisors have what do you need for money for myrtle mercy Vivian Murphy and responded I can't tell you right now but I'll tell you short I can't tell you right now he released the money from him. This is my proposal. It happens all the time so many of these cases are never reported Scott because believe it or not. These are educated older Americans. They know better. They are if you asked her do you know better she would've told you yes I know better even her own daughter said to her. Wait you need to go where your she said I I've got it I've got to canceled doctor appointment and her daughter said. Why are you canceling your doctor appointment she is I can't tell you. And the doc a little red flag went off with a daughter and the daughter said. What what is going on with you you never would miss a doctor appointment and at one point this week Vivian said to her daughter. Well like I think I've command to some money. And a daughter says to her almighty god to please tell me you did not send money. To someone calling. And that's how it unraveled she finally said while. He sent a little cent you know. 2000 and then they needed another three for taxes and and I sent five share of sending a total 47000. Dollars her daughter was able to stop a check for twenty fast the eleventh our. Did daughter. Understood now what was going on stopped to 20000. Dollar check. But here is why I wanna talk about this we've talked about these scams before. Chances are you know someone has gone down this road or almost gone down this road. This woman did not sound like she was calling from a foreign country she is the name what holly. Hollins started calling her. This is what I'm going to propose to you. When it. An elderly person and we can argue about the age Slater. Has elderly means different things to different people. When they call a financial advisor and say I need to cast that account out. The financial advisor Hass to legally be able. To insure. They are not a crime victim. Mascot you would save their money it's not their business I disagree if you're crying victim and you are being scanned. Into withdrawing the only money you have and that account. I think a financial advisors should legally be able to say what they say. Well I'm not supposed to tell you them they should legally be able to say two things. Can you just share with me does this involve a sweepstakes. Or. A lottery. Winning. And if so how much money have you already sent to which they can simply lie it. Could there is terrorist we have to have. Some line of protection because it happens and it happens again and it's happening right now somewhere in Kansas City while readiness converse. It this happens every single day. You have to be able as a financial person or bank to be able to say. I have to ask you these two questions. Does this involve a sweepstakes. And lottery. And we can talk about the man jury and for gas the wording is this a prince in Africa that that loves you now. And if so how much money have you Marty sent and then at the point times got that that sweet person says the party sent. 26000 dollars and I need twenty more no. No no no we are now protecting you from someone out what. Also it really protecting them from themselves but here here's the problem. And I understand exactly what you're saying and you bring up a very valid and good point however. I think it is within the purview of a financial advisor. To say that. Is this for Nigerian prince who says he loves you wants to make you happy. Is this for a publisher's clearinghouse woman named Holland. Who has called you Geary and sweetie. Com well I can't get into them but maybe yes a little bit. Vivian as you were financial advisor you are being scammed I am strongly. Advising you. To stop sending these people any more money is if you truly what is sweepstakes you do not have to pay any money to get money that's right that's fatality on the back and of course. That their idea that the scam is to get you to pay money up front. On the idea that these are taxes or paying for an advance which is not how the system works however. Wept. If Vivian has been informed that she is being scammed. And insists on taking the money out anyway. I would make the argument as unfortunate and as sad as this story is. Vivian has the right to withdraw. Absolutely. A full of their money is easily easily part it. All I'm saying is we create a very thin buffer lay here in between that and allow a financial advisor. To ask two very simple questions it will unravel like Zach but it shouldn't be wall. Well I think if these old eyes of saudis are not allowed to fry these. Funny these should be the policies a stab list up front but are these financial institutions. Where if we think. You were taking money out and it's scammer related. We have a fiduciary responsibility of forty animal form you 48 hour no you don't have the right. To hold my money for 48 hours against my will that is my money. I am allowed to be awful. You do not have the right to hold my money. Can you imagine if you. You are save their money you're not holding it. You're saving it for them what's the age where we put that pol out well we can talk about that because my mother's 73 years old she is. Vera right back. If my mother wants to withdraw money. She should have the right to withdraw money now if it's for a scam and it's coming out of my inheritance yeah she should not. I'm gonna throw a number out and it's gonna make people matters is 75 and I think you're wrong I was sitting seventy home. Is that why you're retirement home in Phoenix. Drawn out baby goes spinning your retirement money Anaconda so which Vivian Murphy would say. What if it involves a third party individual. I think these guys and women they should have the right to and I don't think I am a RE go ahead. I'm vivienne Murphy yes Europe my financial advisor. I want this money because I'm gonna get guests will be what I liked what I do for you I need to withdraw 20000. Dollars from my retirement I don't think you gonna customer 48 you've never took account right. Yeah I just some come up majesty to take out 20000 dollar okay. I do just by law I have a couple questions I need to ask you quickly to get this out of the way and I'm sure that there's nothing untoward going on you wrote the law abiding citizen Vivian. Has someone asked you has a third party asked do you two wires in this money for any reason not okay. Is this money being used for upfront costs for a sweepstakes. And lottery. I just wanna take and look at some of the put a down payment on they are. Reynolds that I like what I just don't understand Vivian I'm glad you asked us as a scam going around. Where someone very nice calls I don't know maybe she says her name is Holland and she calls and she says. I need this tax money but I just wanted you to know Vivian that is a scam. In case that ever happened a year ago after I appreciate vacuums in the 20000 Elkins absolutely Vivian boom. There's a reason vivienne didn't feel comfortable telling anybody what it was in the end she knew she was being played Vivian is going to know. And have a relationship. At age seventy was your financial advisor. And if vivienne. Is gullible enough to hand 48000 dollars over complete stranger named whatever Holland. The financial advisor will be able to talk some sense into Vivian I'm telling you right. But even her daughter said mom what's going on and even Vivian said to her daughter. I can't tell you right now. Vivian knew the issues being scam Vivian was told don't tell anyone or it jeopardizes your prize. That's what they do don't tell your daughter. Don't tell your son to what the first question is they asked when they called her at the scammer the very first time that called her own now are you alone. The event let go back and read it the very first question I ask is are you alone. Because they know it's a daughter or his son or husband sitting there they're think oh yeah and I don't some swampland in Florida mom. 76779.
