Did "Greer" just set himself up to be audited by the IRS by saying he's never "participated" ?  What could he have been thinking?

Mr. Mike Greer is actually a very nice and very smart guy. He is a former Engineer and now has his own photography business. He was my photographer at my wedding just a few months ago. I am very happy for him, his wife and children. This could not have happened to a nicer guy. Also, our wedding pictures turned out great! Check out his site at www.mikegreer.com

    Sounds like Mike Greer is the business person in the family that a family member might turn to for advice on how to claim their prize without exposing their personal business.  I think filling out a 5754 form and claiming the jackpot as a group is a good ideas even if the group only has one person or members of one family, that way strangers are less likely to appoarch you asking for money.

        I agree and I've notice over and over again the quick pick ticket wins most offen. It is strange indeed as if they pick who wins with

        the quick pick option. I hope if this is trully the case a wistle blower needs to blow the wistle and revel what they know is going on.

        I take the lottery very seriously and many people do eventhough its a game of chance. Sopose to be a game of chance?

          it truly all is chance and luck (however you choose to phrase it). Quick Pick tickets win more often because more people buy them. Law of statistics, there.

           

          Oddly enough, I used to play all quick Picks except for one hand picked number, this week I have reversed that and played all wheeled numbers with one or two QP and have won more this week than i have all month. the winners were all wheeled numbers.

           

          so who knows... its all random.

            People are talking about this story in a funny way but I saw on the news and they show a clip of the store and the book store have a window where they sell lotto tickets. I am assuming the person bought it outside of the store and didn't enter the store. Who knowsBig Grin

            Yeah, the store has a window. And why does everyone assume it's a male? Hell, a female could've stopped and bought the ticket for everybody.

                  Mr. Mike Greer is actually a very nice and very smart guy. He is a former Engineer and now has his own photography business. He was my photographer at my wedding just a few months ago. I am very happy for him, his wife and children. This could not have happened to a nicer guy. Also, our wedding pictures turned out great! Check out his site at www.mikegreer.com

                  Congratulations on your wedding and thanks for posting the link.  It looks like Mr. Greer is a very talented photographer who knows how to handle his business.  Makes sense that he was chosen to represent the group - he probably already has the professional contacts (lawyers, financal advisor, accountants) this group will need to help sort out a very nice $windfall$.   I wish them nothing but the best.

                    "LIKE THEY SAY IT TAKES ONE SINGLE TICKET TO WIN BIG."

                    Unless there are multiple tickets sold with the winning numbers, only one ticket can win whether players buy tickets one at a time or by the thousands. Obviously it only takes one ticket to win but I don't see any significants or logic behind saying players have a better chance of winning by only buying one ticket. There is no difference between a player buying a QP and hoping those numbers are drawn than another player picking numbers and hoping they are drawn. The odds are exactly the same.

                    Many winners have said they only bought one ticket or it was the first ticket they every bought so there is nothing news worthy and nothing to say. However a story about a player buying their ticket at a porn shop is just begging for comments.

                      Reading this story, my gut keeps telling me this guy actually IS the ticket buyer & being a proper business man with a good rep, of course he wouldn't want to admit being in a porn shop.

                      It seems pretty easy to simply say, "No, it wasn't me who bought it - I'm just the one the winner (whom I won't name) picked to come & receive the check" 

                      Anyways, I didn't realize winning as a "club" only requires ONE person to be the public face- I thought ALL the members are required to be present & have their names published, cause now I know how I'm gonna collect if I ever win - and still remain anonymous !!! 

                      The guy stated he liked the home he already has & wants to stay there but, buddy.....I promise you will not be able to do that now !!!! move far away as you can !!!!

                      Also, it's amusing to imagine a "true Bible following Church" accepting ANY of this "porno -gambling -dirty money"Evil Uhh but i bet they'll be right there to gladly take anything they can get   !!--  Keep your money dude, or give some out directly to poor homeless folks -If God wanted the church to win He'd have sent the preacher to the adult bookstore (window, of course) Hahahaha

                        Yeah, the store has a window. And why does everyone assume it's a male? Hell, a female could've stopped and bought the ticket for everybody.

                        As the story originally ran here in Michigan. "It was a woman who who purchased the ticket at the window of the porn store. She worked as a security guard at GreekTown casino. She went into work and told her friends."

                        FOX2 NEWS was reporting about the woman and casino relationship. Then all went quiet until the press release last Friday.

                          A winner s a winner no matter where the ticket is bought. But, how much attention would this story have gotten if the owner is someone prominent in the church-  half paragraph and one days worth of attention?

                            Are you nuts?!

                            The left-wing liberal media was probably praying it was someone prominent in the church so they could attack Christianity as they love to do! If the buyer of the ticket was a Christian cleric this story would have been made into a major scandal and stretched out for weeks!

                            It would have been fodder for Jon Stewart and Bill Maher and there would have been skits about it on Saturday Night Live. Democrats are on a mission to marginalize Christianity. They mock and ridicule it at every opportunity. They're too cowardly to attack Islam though - might get their heads sawed off.
