                  I think you might have hit the nail on the head.

                    yeah well he prob onlt turned up with the one winning ticket. when asked what else did you buy that day from lotto. maybe said nothing.

                     lotto would know exactly what scratchers where bought at the same time.  maybe once a week they see the same set of tickets bought . $10 worth, around 6pm.  maybe they still see thwe same set being bought today, yet this " winner " has no clue about it.

                    they're usually suspicious for a reason.

                    2014 winnings

                    JAN -$48.50;  FEB  -$77.5; MAR -$18.05;  APR -$96.05 MAY -$61.10; JUN $-85; JUL $-88.9;

                      Thats a very long time to wait for a payout, more to this story I'm sure.

                        My guess is, its a third party cashing the ticket.

                          I feel so sad about what happened with Mr. Osejo.  The fact that he won the $1 million is really amazing.  I guess, he had his personal reasons of why he didn't answer some of the questions directed to him.  Sometimes, we refused to answer questions for personal reason.  I congratulate you in advance Mr. Osejo, soon they will award you your money.  Just pray hard.

                            My guess is those guys working security need to look necessary if they want to keep their jobs.

                            * you don't need more tickets * 
                            * just the right ticket *

                              Federal Income Tax Brackets for 2012

                              Tax BracketMarried Filing JointlySingle
                              10% Bracket$0 – $17,400$0 – $8,700
                              15% Bracket$17,400 – $70,700$8,700 – $35,350
                              25% Bracket$70,700 – $142,700$35,350 – $85,650
                              28% Bracket$142,700 – $217,450$85,650 – $178,650
                              33% Bracket$217,450 – $388,350$178,650 – $388,350
                              35% BracketOver $388,350

                              Over $388,350


                              If you win a million dollars, you will obviously be in the 35% tax bracket. The entire 35% will not be due until April. Before you even get the check from the lottery office, 25% will be automatically taken out for tax withholding, so come April, you will most likely need to pay an additional 10% for federal income tax.

                              Keep in mind that chart above is for 2012. The Bush era tax cuts are set to expire at the end of 2012 and if they are not extended the highest tax bracket may go up from 35% all the way up to 39.6%.

                              Just be thankful you don't live in New Jersey. The state tax on lottery winnings is 10.75%. So lets say the Bush era tax cuts are not extended and you win a million dollars from the lottery in 2013 in New Jersey. You need to pay 39.6% for federal income tax and then pay 10.75% in state tax.

                              So you need to pay 50.35% tax on your winnings. The government will take more than half of the money!

                              A new 3.8% Medicare contribution tax will take effect in 2013. This new tax will be implemented even if the Bush tax cuts are extended and is based on a minimum AGI of 250k for married, 200k for single.

                              Those NJ resident lucky enough to win next year will be looking at a total tax obligation of 54.15% on their AGI. Those who live in states that don't have state income tax will be looking at Federal tax obligations of 43.4% an increase of 24% from 2012...if the Bush tax cuts are extended you would save 4.6% (39.6-35%) from these figures.
