Clerk charged in Tennessee lottery scam

Tennessee LotteryTennessee Lottery: Clerk charged in Tennessee lottery scam

A Madisonville, Tennessee lottery scam could be the biggest since the state started selling tickets in January.

A Madisonville clerk who worked at the Checkered Flag Market on Highway 411 could serve prison time for ripping off a store and the state lottery.

A detective in Madisonville arrested Lisa Moses at work Wednesday. She's charged with stealing more than $18,000. It breaks down as $10,000 from the store and $8,000 from the lottery.

Investigators think Moses would steal tickets and cash the winning ones in at other stores. She's also accused of scratching off tickets and activating them if they won.

The arrest warrant says she stole $10,000 from her manager's office at the Checkered Flag. Her arrest came after the store owners became suspicious about missing money and lottery tickets.

It wasn't hard to catch Moses after they checked the store's security cameras. One detective said Moses dventually admitted her scheme.

The Tennessee Lottery office has been notified.

Moses is out of jail on bond.

                if she were smart, she would have sold them at a cheaper rate on the street.

                I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                  A lot of people are looking for a lucky short cut to winning big playing the lotteries.  While most buy tickets with numbers from their lucky systems, lucky dreams and birthdays or the luck of some quick picks, a few prefer the shorter route of just steeling some tickets.  The facts are, it hard to come out ahead of the game whether you're buying or steeling your tickets, but when you buy your tickets you don't have to go to jail when you lose.

                    What about those who buy Mega Millions/Powerball for a big jackpot and then resell them?
