On this episode we'll be discussing "McMillions" the six-part HBO documentary series that details the FBI investigation into the McDonald's Monopoly fraud case.
Between 1989 and 2001 there were no legitimate winners of the grand prizes in the McDonald's Monopoly game promotion. One man set out to steal the instant winner game pieces that paid out up to $1 million dollars each that paid out a total of $24 million dollars. "McMillions" traces the FBIs investigation to find out who the elusive "Uncle Jerry" was and how he was able to pull off this scam for over a decade.

Thanks for the plagiarism episode I had NO IDEA, I have now unsubscribed and given them a one star honest review! I have now subscribed to yours and am loving what I’m hearing! Thank you xx
