    Guy wins $10,000,000 in California lottery, thinks it's only $10k, tells roommate, gets ticket stolen

    https://torontosun.com/news/world/ca...ou-win-lottery

    The thief:




    I still don't understand how you win $10 million and only think it's $10,000.

    Maybe the same type of person who would tell their roommate about a $10k winning lottery ticket and leave it where it can be stolen.

    When faced with a difficult decision, ask yourself "What would Micon do?", then do the opposite.

    Hence the old PT Barnum Saying "A fool and his money are soon parted" Idiot never shouldve said crap about the ticket.. hell your stupid sometimes to even mention it to family let alone some random dude who shares your kitchen space

    If the video footage from the store that sold that ticket shows the guy claiming it was stolen buying it, the idiot who stole it will never be able to collect the winnings.

    I know, this thread had a lot going for it before Druff
    put his idiot logic behind it

    No, you don't cash a 10 million dollar ticket without some
    proof of ownership

    hey, I feel bad four you
    you just put out more money
    on a site with maybe 30 phaticapnts
    this is Skatzpoker.org minus the intellect

    Nothing is more obvious today than the single inability of capital and private enterprise to take care of themselves unaided by the state; they are all the while besieging legislatures for relief from their own incompetency, and "pleading the baby act" through a trained body of lawyers and lobbyists.

    In the case of a large winning ticket, the lottery does an investigation to make sure the ticket wasn't stolen, including asking the seller for video footage of the purchase.

    They did this and realized that the owner of the ticket wasn't the guy attempting to cash it.

    The actual owner also reported it stolen.

    They let the dumbass thief think everything was okay, and when he showed up to collect his $10 million after a supposedly clean investigation, the police were waiting and arrested him.

    It appears that the actual owner of the ticket will likely get paid.

    Maybe he really hated his roommate so he played some 4D chess in year 3019 and told him so he'd steal it, knowing he wouldn't be able to cash it, guy get arrested or some shit, then yeah.
