she fumbled in her purse for the money — trying not to show how much she was carrying with her — she pulled out the hundred dollar bill and a lottery ticket together.

  She's NOT using her Common Sense !!!!!!!!!    you don't carry huge cash in your purse or none at all .

What is she Ft Knox ????

Common sense would have been to claim the 1 million anonymously.

No one that down on their luck should be buying beer.

Yet she still was handing out money and tickets.

    While the ticket is a "bearer instrument" if an indivudual or group can prove it is rightfully theirs, guess who collects the windfall?

    What I want to know is, how will they from watching this video recording determine if she gave the ticket along with hundred dollars willingly or unwillingly?

    I Agree!, rad242, this 'beer man' thought this previous $1M, pre-tax, lottery jackpot winner meant to give him: kindness, $100 bill, and the $1 lottery ticket.  Why else would he be so happy to go back to the store (where he received multiple joys) and make an effort to tell the store clerk specifically who he received all four of his joys from)? 

    Why doesn't this 3 month ago lottery jackpot winner woman understand that this 'beer man,' she engaged with, thought she meant to give him all three joys? 

    Now that everyone has read/heard that this lottery jackpot winner of three months ago, only meant to give this 'beer man' the two joys rather than three joys that day.  [Essentially indicating that she would appreciate his returning to the liquor store, or meeting her at lottery headquarters; since he may not know her address) so she may meet him there to give her the, hopefully, still unsigned ticket.]  Maybe he will be able to return the winning lottery ticket to her, or gift her $13K/annually for a few years).

    Regardless, if I was this 'beer man,' my heart would be plummeting upon reading/hearing her confession of mistake and desire for winning lottery ticket to be returned!  I wouldn't know if she was thinking about giving me the joy of claiming half of the ticket under each of our names or if she'd think that giving me $100 would give me the same joy that it did the first time!  I wonder if he'll ever read/hear of her mistake, or innocently, unawares fill out the claim form at lottery headquarters?

    What?

      I am anxious to read how the lottery commission rules on this saga

        I agree with the majority of you guys. First, the guy was buying beer and she decides to  hand him a $100 to help him out? This is a fast way to go broke real quick. Second, the way she lost that ticket is by being too careless and doling out money and I consider myself a caring person but not enough to be giving awayt hundred dollar bills. And last, it is her fault for accidently giving away the winning ticket and not his, so I believe the only fair thing to do is to have them split the money. If she purchased the ticket and accidently gave  it away due to be careless and they can prove it then splitting would be the most fair thing to do for eveyone involved.

        Who say's I'm broke? Are you kidding me, I am just waiting on my millions!Dance

            I honestly would let him keep the winning ticket, i know if i was
            Even lucky enough to win 1 million dollars that would be MORE than enough for me, i want a basic life with college paid off, a house, car & to help others..

            That 260k can really do alot for the guy if he is in neeed of the $$.

            The Guy was buying beer.... if he's that broke.... DON'T be wasting it on the beer. If he's an alcoholic, then that $100 just went to buy more alcohol and maybe some gas.

            If he's broke, it's because he's too dumb with any money he receives as buying beer is a clear indication of what many who don't have a pot to piss in do with the money they receive, usually off the backs of Government forcing people to give to the "less fortunate"! 

            There's probably a WHOLE story behind this guys life. 

            On the other hand, this lady is clearly not in her right mind. You don't just go handing money out, that's asking for trouble. So, if she's buying tons of scratch tickets, you can see where she's headed financially.

              "Leach offered $100 to one of the men waiting in line behind her"

               

              If she keeps this up she will be back where she started. It is clear she has no understanding of money. It is good to be generous, but should be done in an organized way, not willy-nilly. She should invest her winnings and give a percentage of the profits to charity.

              We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                I Agree!  You have to pay attention when your buy tickets ..A guy just tryed to pull a fast one on me yesterday

                with the mega million 363 ticket....I asked for 5 dollars on mega, he took my 5 bucks and then give me a ticket ..I almost just put it in my wallet but I looked at it first ...It was for one dollar on mega  and he wasn't trying to give me four dollars back...I said something to him which he replyed back opps.   I'm sorry ,I didn't notice ...Well he gave me another four dollars on tonights mega millions...

                     I see so many people NOT paying attention when they by or check tickets...i never let the casher check your tickets ...if you can't check them yourself maybe you shouldn't be paying...I dont want to sound mean but I get mad when i read about alot of the cashers duking someone out of money..And it happens alot in New York State...

                      New York State refuses to test any of the cashers ..I don't know why...I'll have to ask gov. Commo next time he's in town..PartyUS FlagPartyP.S. .....good luck to everyone on tonights mega millions

                That exact scenario happened to a friend of mine buying a $5 Florida Lotto ticket. Most people including her never check their ticket and unfortunately she made it home before realizing what transpired.

                    I just bought the winning number in tonight's Mega Millions drawing online!  I love this online playing!  As for this subject, first I think she was not smart in giving out money to a stranger since that could have marked her for a mugging later on.  I too would put my lottery tickets with my money in my wallet when I USED to have to go to the convenience store to buy my tickets so I understand the possibility of something like this happening.   But maybe if she just wrote it off, she would gain some good karma and perhaps win the jackpot tonight.  But now that she is grousing about $256K, she surely will not win tonight's jackpot.  It is all positive for me to win this jackpot tonight!  Now time to go eat and workout.

                     

                    I rich Byatch!!!

                    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                      If she's a free spirit giving money and tickets to strangers, it is going to be very hard for her to claim she gave that ticket out by mistake only after she learned it was a winner. If she had made her claim before the winner stepped forward, it might be a different story.

                      Now what would be funny in this situation is if the lottery commission agreed she bought the winning ticket, gave it to someone as a gift, and the IRS and her state Treasurer came after her for income taxes on the money she won. Wink

                           There has to be some law against news organizations lieing, I go in this store alot after hearing her on the radio in January. From what I have heard, the guy was rambling and talking fast, what I would imagine made her confused and uncomfortable. This woman has helped alot of people and no one should fault her for doing that. The video shows she was helping him and another man and she didnt just buy one ticket. And the clerk should have helped her when the guy was asking her for money, a week ago he was telling people she was his friend and I know the clerk asked her for money too. This woman obviously has god on her side, some amazing blessing to hit the lottery twice. No one can deny she bought the winning ticket, it is her blessing. Also, that store should have kept her privacy, the Lottery too, they didn't say the mans name with the ticket? That store was dead everyday a few months ago, this lady has single handedly made that place famous, by winning there twice and promoting the store in every interview she did when she hit in January. Good things happen to good people, anyone that says she is wrong or calls her names  for helping people, needs to take a look in the mirror and ask for some forgivness. Maybe all the other people she has helped should start coming forward, I am sure you would ALL take money from her too.

                            I saw this video on the t.v. only once and if my memory serves me correctly, the lady bought a couple of tickets and gave two tickets away to two men really fast as she turned to her left side after buying the tickets. Maybe it wasn't intentional. I'd like to see this video again. Ms. Leach has a golden hand. Ms. Leach won on a scratcher ticket in January for $1 million.

                              This lady will achieve two things that she didn't set to achieve. #1 she will be revealed through all the media coverage that she recently won $1M so more begging hands will be shoved on her face. #2 She will not get her money because the cameras will show her handing over the money and ticket  and maybe even smiling while doing it. The guys lawyers will say there was a genuine offer and acceptance and thats the end of it.

                              That money's gone fo ever
