Confusedthere shouldn't be any skepticism if this had just sign the back of the ticket , once it sign even if it lost no one can claim it but the person who sign on the back.

    cbs$, sign it sure, onless they plan to go trust, but if they planned to do a trust and hide who they are, i guest they would of kept the ticket in  safe place to begin with......

     

    and to TheGameGrl

    i don't know how you can question the  winners whoever they are, not getting bank interest, and losing money ever day they wait past 2 weeks.

     

    i was just pointing out,  as of right now, its all 1 in account, the Connecticut lottery is getting the interest off the money, they Keep whatever interest they earn. winner losing out, BIG time.

    soon as winners show up, with lawyer paperwork, it be a matter of days before its all wired to winner. sense lottery has it all 1 account. waiting for someone to show up with ticket.

     

    feel free to google how long does it take lottery to wire winners their money, you find 2 weeks statement is very True.

    its all about time, lottery's of each state collect, the money, send it to state lottery's with winners, to hold for winners,

     

    saying my information needs to be taken with a grain of salt, can be said of you, having balls to question facts.

     

    hell i just wish ever winner would do their own homework, and look into these things them self's,  , they should not blindly trust other people"even lawyers" money  experts    etc ,  my point stands, atfer 2 weeks, winners are costing their self money by not claiming Now.    . and anyone that says other wise, should never be trusted, Ever!   with then   winners money, as their dumb experts  if they cost their cilent money.

      Why doesnt that man who says it was him, tell the store what time he bought the ticket and try to look at the Store's Security camera...

      "Look, right there, thats me buying the ticket!"

      Atleast thats what I'd be trying to do if I was certain it was me who stands to lose out on $254 million.

          Doesn't he have until about May 2 to find it, though?

          Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

          In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

            I believe this store should be obligated to immediately release footage at the exact moment the ticket was purchased so that some random person doesn't get awarded $245 million for a ticket they "stole."  I believe the person who purchased the ticket should get this $, unless they gave it as a gift to someone, which is unlikely for a powerball ticket.

              "I believe this store should be obligated to immediately release footage at the exact moment the ticket was purchased so that some random person doesn't get awarded $245 million for a ticket they "stole.""

              But somebody mentioned the "real winner" might be forming a trust so they can remain anonymous. Ironic that the more time they take, the better the chance their identity will be revealed. Most stores have surveillance cams but who knows if they had tape in the cameras so unless the store is in a higher crime area, it's possible there is no tape.

              The ticket is a worthless piece of paper until it signed and validated by CT Lottery. Personally, I would be in the Lottery office the next day it was open and maybe lay low until the money was in my account. Federal taxes of 25% will be withheld along with any state tax and another 8% or 9% will have to be paid when the winner fills out their taxes.

              There is lots of speculation as to which year the winnings are declared income; some say if you wait until the first of the year it goes on the year 2012 taxes while others say it's determined by the date of the drawing. Hopefully one of these days a tax expert will give us the real answer.

                If a person can't produce the ticket, then he or she,or they won't win. Guard your tickets....Bash

                  I live in a high crime area with a lot of gang activity.   If I am the lucky winner and my photo was released in this manner, my safety would be compromised and my home broken into.   And here I am trying to protect my identity..... and my family.

                   

                  As to the people who claim they lost the ticket, they are setting themselves up to sue for a portion of the pot from the true winner or to place a claim if no one has claimed it in 5 months.  That is if they truely didn't have the ticket.   At least one of them doesn't....

                    I'm pretty sure Zinniagirl that the lottery headquarters,terminal, can tell how many tickets were actually sold with those numbers.

                      I Agree! Connecticut is doing exactly the right thing, letting the real winner get themselves together, first.

                      My guess is some thoughtful people around there still remember the Petit incident.

                        I heard a rumor that Dick Cheney and the CEO of Halliburton each chipped in 50 cents to buy one ticket together and it turned out to be the winning ticket.

                        And it was the first time they ever played.
