About 3 or 4 years ago I found a $1 MM QP ticket on the sidewalk. LOL maybe it's a good thing it wasn't a winner!
Unfortunately this story leaves out alot of details.
I'm not really sure how I feel about this.....except what a mess for the Staceys.
When I filled out the claim form for for SuperLotto I DID NOT have to specify where the ticket was purchased nor was I asked.
My experience with finding things......
More than once I have found wallets with ID so I gave them to my supervisor to be mailed back to the rightful owners.
Once I found an unsigned credit card on the sidewalk. I called the number on the back and told the issuer I found the card so it could be canceled.
I found a watch in the gutter and it never occurred to me I had an obligation to find it's rightful owner.
Money......Once I was walking in a store and a man on his way out dropped some so I caught his attention and told him. I've also seen money hanging out of peoples pockets and I brought it to their attention. I have found money in the gutter, on the sidewalk and even in the middle of the street and no one around but me. I have also found money when other people are around and learned very quickly that if you ask someone if they just dropped some money they'll say yes (by asking you just let them know you have no idea who dropped it)
If I needed money and found a lottery ticket I would think it was luck too.(Well not after reading this) This story doesn't say the Staceys saw the McDonaghs drop the ticket....only that the ticket was found.
The next time I find something I'll remember this..... Finders Beware!
