golem222: so he purchased the ticket from his parents store and then waited years to cash it, i wonder if maybe that has something to do with not cashing it. What i am saying is either the ticket was stolen from one of there customers and they waited a long time so it would blow over or they found some way to figure out which tickets are winners.
Diarrhea Anne Frank: ozarkmatt: KrispyKritter: when i was a young man my goal was to hit the Lottery, buy a huge liquor warehouse and have the windows boarded up so I could drink in peace.Hell, I want to do that now in a Lowe's or a Home Depot. Just walk around and buy all the cool toys you want. I know most will never be used, but I would have a home workshop that makes Norm Abram look like a pussy.I'm 33, and if growing "older" has brought me any wisdom at all, they have been in the form of strategies for getting locked into a Toy'r'Us overnight.
leadmetal: puffy999:I smell some sort of fraudulent activity.There's only two ways that seem possible.1) They found a way to read the tickets without scratching them off.2) A customer won and brought it back to the store, they stole it from the customer, and the customer never complained about it.I find both of these highly unlikely.

reported: ....I agree... they don't seem like the type to blow the money on customized double-wides with gold fixtures and Lamborghinis with rebel flag paint jobs.

FirstNationalBastard: So, he just postponed the inevitable divorce and her trying to take all his money for six years.
"Congratulations, you're she's the first to survive the audition."
ThatDarkFellow: So you can claim a ticket after 6 years and have a relative sell you the winning ticket?/that makes a lot of sense//in texas if you are related to anyone involved in the lottery you are barred from playing. if you don't claim your prize within the allotted amount of time then you're SOL.

TheMysteriousStranger: I am pretty damn sure that every multi-million dollar winner is investigated and that if the circumstances are unusual they really get investigated.
