There are a few people here who are actually happy when somebody gets ripped off. It's always the same ones rushing out to defend the crooks or defend the State Lottery. It must be jealousy or something or the "If I can't have it nobody can" syndrome.

 

"Well he shouldn't get his money cuz he didn't do x, y or z perfectly."

"Willis Willis shouldn't get his money cuz he was stupid."

"The clerk shouldn't be charged cuz he didn't actually get on the plane for Katmandu yet."

 

Whatever happened to "benefit of the doubt" for the little guy when he's the victim occasionally?

Why the mad rush to defend the thieves and crooks all the time?

Why do they and the authorities always get the benefit of the doubt?

Why are you people (and you know who you are) so giddy when someone gets screwed out of money?

    The evidence is strong against this clerk, so the case should be a simple matter of presenting the jury or judge with the circumstances. You can't hang someone before they have their day in court. I believe a conviction of this clerk, followed with a stiff jail sentence, will serve as a warning to other clerks to deal with winning lottery players honestly.

      NYSlugger777, a very good policy! I never hand the clerks a ticket unless I've personally verified the winning amount. Our lottery machines in California are able to scan tickets and display the prize amounts (If the prize is below $600.00) without the clerk's help. Before these machines were modified to scan tickets, you had to have them verified by store clerks. On many occasions, I asked the clerk to hand me the ticket back because I thought the prize amount was incorrect. Nine times out of nine, my request was denied, or I simply had to take the clerk's word for it.

              I always print my name where you put your name and sign my tickets when I get home from purchasing them.

              I also double check the numbers after the drawings.

              Not rocket science!

              Cool

Give him a fair trial and hang him in the morning.

                      face palm close the store,sue the store owner & off with the employee thief's hands with a good sized meat cleaver and on public tv

                      problem solved !!!!

                      I will second that.   If that was my ticket I would of never left the store in the first place without the ticket.  I might of been thrown in the pokey but I would of recovered tht ticket.

                        That's why you should A. Check online but since not everyone has online access (I mean you could use the library but thats a bit of hassle. or B. Sign your tickets no MATTER WHAT.

                        I will tell a story about a winning that I wasn't given the opportunity to sign first .There was this store near my home. I  would call my numbers in every day.On this particular day I won $791.00 on the number 731. I had call my numbers in as usual, but this worker who knew me and the store owner definly knew me.He decide that he was going to take my $500.00 winning ticket.When I collected my tickets the 731 ticket 50/50 was there but not my $500.00 ticket .He "said that he didn't have it" .I made the mistake by calling in to tell him I won on the numbers.He then check the ticket and try to steal the $1.00 straight bet ticket .I call the owner only after calling the state lottery to tell them what happen. They inform me that each ticket had a tracking number and that they would take the number of the ticket before and the ticket after the missing ticket and if  they  tried to cash that ticket it will red flag it. I told the owner and he came in to the store and the clerk all of a sudden found the ticket between the counter and he was the one that took the numbers over the phone. So I know there are crooks out there everywhere.Rant

                            I don't any more,but will call a friend to have them to put one in if I can't make it to the store in time. Thanks for the advise anyway.Thumbs Up
