A Novel Way to Start a Stamp Collection

Britain's Daily Mirror reports a German pensioner has started collecting stamps after getting hundreds of fake letters from all over the world claiming she had won the lottery.

Ruth Niedermayer, 85, of Cologne, has received envelopes from Hungary, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Russia and China, to name a few according to the article.

She said, “My name must be on some list sold around the world. I toyed with the idea of replying but then decided to just collect the stamps.”
