That may work if they care about such things, but it's the GIVER that pays the gift tax, so the recipient doesn't have much reason to care about that.

If that doesn't works as a polite way of saying no then you just say "HEL.....NO" in a way they understand.

    So far I have been asked 2 times at different gas stations by a clerk "If you win, are you going to give me a million dollars?".

    Sometimes I think the only reasons some clerks get jobs at gas stations that sell lots of lottery tickets is so they can get gratuities from lottery winners and maybe even get a share a jackpot if one of their customers get lucky.  On many occasions I've had a friendly clerk say "You're going to remember me if you win, aren't you?" and I answered a friendly "No, sorry I don't really know you".   Even had some of them look like a deer starking into a car head lights when I've cashed a ticket worth a hundred dollars or more as I thanked them and left.  I usually shop at different places for my tickets since I don't consider any of the clerks my friend.

    On many occasions I've had a friendly clerk say "You're going to remember me if you win, aren't you?"

    Reading some of these stories makes me wonder, how many of these people we encounter everyday would go so far as to fabricate a story like Sis did? Supposing RJoh wins, and when this clerk learns who it was, he fabricates a story that RJoh promised him a share of the winnings? Then he finds an unscrupulous, greedy lawyer (I know that was redundant) who is willing to take it to court?

    I truly hope Sis gets nothing, nada, zero, zilch. The court has to send a message and set a precedent that if anyone plans on getting a share of someone elses future winnings, they'd ed sure as hell better have something clearly written out and signed by both parties with copies of tickets, etc. The court should not issue an award based on 'he said she said'.

    Otherwise it could pave the way for anyone to make up any kind of lie and win a portion of your winnings.

    I'd like to hear where this case goes and hope sometime we get a followup to this story.

    Give someone a fish and feed them for a day. Teach them to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

        My opinion is she is completely lying about the dollar or even talking to her brother about sharing the ticket she has no proof. With people like ths i don't know nothing you can do. Some people say this why they don't enter pools but lol seems you can enter one without even knowing :/

          I Agree!

          100% in agreement Sully,

          Again, it's not the money, but love of money above all else.....

          Really too bad but the golden calf will rule in absence of love this  punishing the entire family clan

          There's always a Price to be paid......
