    Thanks for answering me.  The live video broadcast on WNBC on March 30 reports

    "Lottery officials said a third man, not the clerk, arrived at lottery headquarters in Van Nuys with the ticket and tried to claim the prize money. Officials became suspicious when the man could not tell them where he bought the ticket and whether it was a "quick pick" of randomly chosen numbers, simple questions officials said a prizewinner should be able to answer."
    Is this correct? What crimes, if any, will he be charged with for trying collect the prize?

      No that was the original story the lottery people put out..they knew it was the same guy who sold it.  and stole it who was trying to claim it.... but didn't put that out to the press at first....I don't know why..but that was the story they ran with....they asked me not to say anything so I didn't

          Well, the press often makes mistakes.  Hey, one paper took 10 years off your age too!  LOL  Wish someone would do that for me.

           

          Edit:  What I meant is the paper said it was your 40th birthday.  A misprint.

                  Wow, I didn't realize a person would have to make a choice between pompous/showy and cheap/reserved.  I always thought a person could own a nice house in a good neighborhood, drive a new model car and still be a decent human being.  But I am sure that is not what you meant.

                    Who are you referring to ?    I don't see any examples of that here.
