Knew from the start that this was just a cry for attention.. And a bad attempt at it too..

The story is just too much and doesn't make sense. Nobody is giving away 600k as a proposal present to someone they met a few months ago, especially after that person starts claiming not to be too tech savvy.. "Wow, so romantic to receive 1000 bitcoin, but what is bitcoin?"

Regarding clicking the links, wouldn't you think the risk of being infected by a malicious ad is much bigger than clicking on a wrong link?

'Redditors and bitcoin experts alike guessed at numerous explanations for the lottery, which ranged from clumsy money laundering to pure trolling. Either way, many suspected that reckahxfb had simply sent the coins back to himself, using the alias TheTwistedTwo, or to someone he knew under that name (more on this later)'.

That wasn't considered legitimate by anyone on the forum. Even the site that you put on the thread say's that he sent the money back to himself. He probably just created another wallet and transferred it.
