Sounds like of fishy to me too. But if its true that she has the winning ticket and cashes in and don't share. I am willing to bet , she will be a target for the rest of her life.  Also why not share it , its plenty to go around. If the shoe was on the other foot , she would be crying foul as well. Live up to the agreement , be woman about it and do that right thing. Remember the good man above is always watching!

    She may be lying because the lottery office said when they viewed the camera it was a male that purchased the tickets but you never know this is what happens with pools.

    You have the one person that will be greedy if she can prove that the boyfriend or husband purchase her tickets seperate then they get nothing it is hard for me to see 15

    mcdonald's employees couging up $5.00 a piece they only make $7.50 per hr they have to account for all their money.

    Right, unless you're a teenager living at home, you won't have any disposable income making only $7.50/hr.

    I can't understand how she'd be able to support seven children on that income, unless her fianc�e is paid very well or some of her children are adults.

        good point benThumbs Up, for her sake hopefully she has a $5 ticket that she bought right after work if not she is headed for a long leagal battle.

        What get's me is the 7-11 clerk said that the lottery officials reviewed the survelliance video and it shows a man buying the ticket. So let's say (I might be stretching here) that her 'fiance' bought the ticket whose to say the she didn't give him the lotter group money to play with. However she keeps saying 'she bought the ticket.

        drama, drama, drama, I need a drink after reading this...LOL...Cheers

        You never know she may look like a man on bad camera .lol

          On a much larger scale than normal. That would be the ultimate April Fool's Joke.  LOL

          Yeah, maybe the NY Post is getting one over on us...

          Or maybe she fooled her coworkers (a little cruel) and the NY Post, which I'd get a big kick out of. I read the NY Post sometimes, but it's kind of a rag lol.

            There is such an easy way to play a work lotto pool that would avoid all this potential lying and deceipt:

            1)  Each person who plays in that individual lotto pool must sign a group pool signup form every time they play the pool.  No signature, no pool entry, no exceptions.  The lotto pool form is to spell out all of the rules for playing in that pool.

            2)  All pool lottery tickets are to be bought the day before the drawing, no exceptions.  Tickets are to be bought at the same time each drawing, so players know they have a deadline they must meet.  If someone wants to join the pool after the tickets are bought or the day of the drawing, they have to wait until next drawing.

            3)  Make a copy of the pool tickets & distribute a set of them to all members of the pool well before the drawing. 

            4)  Keep a copy of the pool entry forms & tickets for at least 1 year.

            5)  Any tickets purchased outside the lotto pool are individual tickets & belong to the person who bought them; they're separate from the pool.  No exceptions.

            If pool players would just follow these simple rules, there would be none of this ridiculous winning ticket drama.  Handle this like a business & it'll never be a problem.

            I agree with you . The drama stops with rules in place & no exception.I Agree!

                Like I said another post Mil$, if he's the father of her 7 kids he needs to MARRY HER, how can a woman have 7 kids and not be married is just alarming too me.... well at least she's working though..

                  When I ran an office lotto pool. I collected $5.00/person. Had each person sign a sheet next to a number showing everyone that was in the pool for that drawing. Then I would go out & buy the tickets.  Everyone in the pool got copies of the tickets & the number of people who sign the sheet. If you spent $20.00, you had to sign the sheet 4 times.   Once/$5.00.  On the sheet they signed; it had the Grand Prize amount, the date of the drawing and numbers usually 1-100 for those that were in that pool.  Everyone knew that if your name wasn't on the sheet & you didn't have copies of the numbers, you were not in that Lotto drawing.  If we had 100 numbers with signatures, Everyone that signed the sheet  had copies of the $500 dollars worth of tickets prior to the actual drawings.  No questions, No problems, Everyone was happy.  Every number on the sheet received  received equal shares.  Our Big Pool didn't start until the jackpot got over 100 Mil.

                    Agreed! I don't say because I want to impose my values on other people [though I can't see myself having that many kids PERIOD, much less unmarried].

                    One person raising seven kids just isn't feasible logistically. People of every moral persuasion should be able to agree with that.

                      Her story sounds fishy.  My buddy said his family in MD said via Facebook that their neighbor won.

                      And he don't look like her...

                        Todd should really sell a downloadable form with instructions on how to run a proper lottery pool. This would probably help a lot of people.

                          Lottery pools can be good and sometimes they can be a bad thing  had to learn the hard way 8yrs ago pooling with 5 co-workers and i picked all the numbers.

                          We had no agreement nothing the 1 co-worker purchased 25 tickets because we put in $5 a piece we won $100,000.00 and this girl just act's a fool well i don't

                          blame the co-wrokers because my mom and my boyfriend was upset and my boyfriend threaten her and her husband needless to say i never got any money

                          the co-worker was treating 2 other girls out to eat, she quit the job and her and her husband was fighting over the money it is gone all $68,000.00 of it after taxes

                          I saw this girl at the karaoke bar she is broke and she had the nerve to speak i rolled my eyes so hard the dj was shocked and ask me what happen when i told him he said

                          I understand i would be mad to.

                            Or don't play at all! People should realize what they are getting themselves into if they don't understand the rules or group play. My co-workers ask me to play in their pool , but i always refuse. When it comes that type of money riding on the line , can me greedy . I just don't like sharing that type of amount of money. Just take it for what its worth

                              I think she mispoke out of excitement thinking that her personal numbers came. In response, the lottery pool members exploded in anger and now she's too embarressed to say she didn't win a crap. It probably was a combination that seemed similar to hers and before being smart and checking it 10 times she started making phone calls. To me it's the only thing that makes sense. The guy that bought winning ticket is the winner who probably doesn't know her from Eve!

                               

                              We'll all have to wait and see.
