i agree with tabtastic, if these lazy beeps don't even want to check to see if they won, and waste the clerk time Checking losers, they should get off their lazy beep and sign the back
the only time you don't sign the back when you hand your ticket to a owner human being and it leaves your view
, is when winning a major jackpot, to form a trust to stay out of public eye
only hand a ticket unsigned to a lawyer who claim it for you, and for god sakes get something like your iphone 4 out and record it, and make him admit he taking temp ownership of what he belives to be a winning ticket of said jackpot. for x trust as a truste, a lawyer being paid a ton of money has no issue with going on video for your own records .
besides that sign the ticket idea for major wins
, clerk can sure rip you off for small wins thro! so always check the ticket your self
, but if their so lazy as not to check winners, at lest no one , but someone named the Same as you "your evil clone" can claim it at a lottery office for major wins think 600+ bucks in must case's
. i guest the fact is, clerks ever day around this nation, sadly abuse these retarded people who play the lottery, not checking or putting any real effort to see if they won these people get robbed and their very little we can do to prevent stupid people form being robbed blind, stupid just can't be fixed its a curse stuck with majority of humanity in 1 form or the other LOL.
and i don't buy the " i don't understand how the game works crap", its on the ticket how, ever lottery website has online website with how to sometimes, Hell ,when their lost, their always lottery post, they can scan the ticket, post a scaned phote of it online, or link to game on lotter website, ask us for help even!
say they don't understand whatever X means, and am sure their be people to help them understand , or they could always ask help of humans next to them in real life, form people they trust how said game works
the fact is, this guy was a lazy idiot, and so is ever other player who gets robbed majority of the time,
want to be a lazy person, and a idiot not to sign your ticket, will you just got robbed blind thanks to it. he should of signed the ticket, and lottery should stop being so nice, i also think the legal court in this nation have a major flaw in lawsuits being allowed at all.
if anyone sues you, and they LOSE they should Have to pay for your defence, you did not wrong and had to pay for your defence! and wasted your personal time
its wrong in so many ways for this player who got robbed to sue the lottery office, it was hes mistake, hes idioticness that made him lose that money, the lottery should not have to pay a peny in legal costs defending them selfs in court vs this guy and hes greedy lawyer. wrongly taking it out on lottery office
at lest they discovered the fact Atfer it was claimed, and letted him know a crime taken place,and even got a little cash back thanks to law enforcement doing their job and frezzing whatever money they could find.
if anything hes a ungrateful son of a beep to that lottery, it was hes mistake and hes alone, if anyone walks in to lottery office with a unclaimed winning ticket for a major prize, and he signed it,or it was not signed, then ya he may of stealed it, but lottery must pay
if anything, the theft was a idiot, i know how clerks can get away with stealing a major pb.mm winner.
use the same trick people use to remain anonymous , lucky thefts don't have brains as big as their evil morals.
my fear,1 day some idiot see a major jackpot , ether does not check the ticket right and thro it away. lose's it" then all that jackpot prize pool the states claim for them selfs atfer x time runs out and we players just been robbed 100s of millions when a major pb/mm jackpot prize unclaimed should be put back first thing into next jackpot roll!
, or just blindly gives it to wrong clerk , sense hes a trusting person and knew to playing the lottery, hands the clerk hes ticket, he only buyed thanks to long lines, etc major amount marketed 300m + or something catched hes eyes to it for first time, and the clerk knows winner was sold near by or their , and omfg luck would have it, he gets hes hand on it form the real winner,
gets the winner, scans say a 2/3 buck winner , just 1 pb/mm match winner ticket, he didn't cash in yet, ,tricking the newb player with term going you Won , going congrats you won. something, and that player leaves thinking sweet i won something!, walks away being 100% clueless he just got robbed insane amount of money.
then said thef clark, gets a lawyer, hides behind many trust's being anonymously , and sense using many diff trust's tactic, a trust within a trust etc, not even lottery would know, the irs would , that's about it, who really getting all that money. and the beeps get away stock free
lottery sure asks when did you buy the ticket, and all the lawyer has to say is my cilent told me he buyed many diff tickets thro out the week, each time he seen the jackpot get upped" as major jackpots do" and is not sure when said ticket was buyed form all the others
sense they lowball high jackpots , and up it thro out a 300+ run thro out the week, this would be easy to do, and lottery has to go with it, and they can't have real names of even the winner, as their having to play by their own rules of talking to the lawyer who just handed them the legit winner , demending he and hes cilent get their jackpot, their not going to force the issue of proof, other then making sure the ticket legit. and not signed , so they have to give it to the lawyer, or their ass will be in court.
in short, a clerk really can get away with it, must do on small amounts, and the only thing really effectice on stopping it, is if ever lottery state puts in self scaner at ever outlet that sells tickets, , 1 it save everyone time, even the clerks checking LOSER tickets, and then they only have to brother with cashing winners majority of the time, and theft goes down, time saved etc, everyone wins
but to ever lottery seller has a self ticket scanner that's their in the open, easy as hell to use, just quick self scan term, with a you won sound and amount or tells you to go to HQ on it, you won big time, , we are going to have this issue of repeat clerk theft form dumb players happening
for god sakes i hope this madness ends, and a pb.mm winner never is a clerk who theft, as that would be right up their as all the state lottery's keeping the prize pool of say 100+ cash form a pb/mm jackpot that went unclaimed for them selfs, then rerolling the amount back INTO the next jackpot draw. sense the dumb player lost hes winning jackpot ticket/destoryed it whatever, dog ate IT rofl/
hell the only time someone has a right in my mind to go to Law court and sue the lottery
is if you say won PB/MM and their was 2 winning tickets , you claimed your share in time, , but the idiot with the other winning ticket Didn't claim at all, time ran out
and I think, regardless of what the lottery rules are and try to get away with, , as you are the Only claime of said major jackpot, that other 50% that was not claimed, Belongs rightful to you and not back to , and not the states, that's the only time i think you could legit go to a court, and the jury would Hand you the other 50% share,
hell i even bet the lottery would try to get away with it, but would settle must likly and give you the other half even, IF you was not going for it, Demanded your 100% share if no one claimed by you!
and taken them to court for other 50% share of whatever major jackpot, the greedy beeps are trying to keep them selfs, they know its bad press the sec the lottery winner takes them to court over it.
as the lottery knows , so do the people in the jury know bullcrap greed the sec they tryed to steal your rightful jackpot form you and They know rightful ownership when they see it
as the jury would see it as, will he was the only one that claimed it, he rightful won, he should get all the jackpot then,and they think to them selfs " if i was in hes shoes, i want full jackpot TOO" , if the other ticket winner never claimed,i should get that full jackpot
my point being, is in my head, i know the lottery people , and their ways are not perfact, like i listed above, they really think they have a Right to unclaimed major wins, would try to steal a unclaimed jackpot of pb/mm of 300+ if given the chance
if it went unlciamed by a major winner who never cashed it in time
but in this case, it was player being a idiot, and not the lottery idiotic ways of not having a ticket checker in ever ticket outlet in clear view, Check your tickets here, "save us all Time you lazy beeps" i like to add but never go on such signs, , the lottery should not never even have to pay for legal defence vs this bs lawsuit form this guy, and if their ever a jury on this issue, should 100% side with lottery as they did what they had to, the theft had winning ticket, as hes story did have odd/redish flags, that made them later review store video, and find out a major theft has taken place, they Had to pay the winning ticket that appeared at time of claiming to now belong to what we know as the theft in this case. and legal costs for this bs lawsuit should lay with lawsuite and hes lawyer paying for the lottery legal defence,
i sure think lawsuits are nonething but act's financial Terrorist agiant people and company's when everyone with a brain"i like to think" knows whatever lawsuit about just bs
its thanks to united states ways that we created a form of financial Terror anyone can do to a other human being who does not deserve it.
