Man I'd love to be one of the winners. I'd be out claiming as soon as I can. With all this hoopla going on nodoby is going to care about one of the other winners claiming via a trust.

 

What's ridiculous though is that people actually call the office to say they know who the winner is. They probably don't, but even if they did... what help at all is that?

    The more I kept hearing this story, the more I kept thinking that the woman was full of bull puckey!  Why do people do this stuff.  Just to be on tv?  Ugh!  Sometimes our society makes me Puke

      What if she is not lying but instead is trying to find one of her "relatives" to cash in the ticket so she won't have to share.  Jester Laugh

      Littleoldlady, I never said she was lying I was agreeing with New York when he said it was wrong to mess with her co-worker emotions even if she does have a relative claim the ticket she also told one of the workers that she would share with the pool once again messing with there emotions.

      "I just feel bad that those pool of people actually thought they won. That lady is wrong with messing with people's emotions" I Agree! New York...

        Maybe the "alleged winner" skipped town until the heat dies down from the story. She can wait a month or so and slip back into town and claim the ticket anonimously

        Given the publicity she has received, I am sure that she has received multiple offers for legal representation. She might be keeping quiet while her legal team strategizes her approach to claiming the winnings.

        If in fact she holds the winning ticket, I am not sure what on earth pocessed her to speak with The Post

        Her legal "team"    Group Hug    Please...your not serious right?  LOL   Doubt she could afford a side order of McNuggets!

          will the real slim shady please stand up, that songs make me think of this,

          fact is april fools was same weekend it was won on friday

          don't think of rumor is real ever during this time.

          also  i have a feeling it be a week before we see a offical winner. 

          be it a trust with a laywer, or a public winner, these people are lawyering up

          thro we should know all 3 winners by end of 2 weeks

          as anyone past that point, is just delaying bank intrest off money, and is their for stupid winners, who does not know or care their losing money

          thro i guest people who win 100+ cash, could care less about earning more LOL.

          No bees, no honey.

            Can someone please explain to me WHY would someone make up a story like this?  What is the proper word/name/diagnosis/or whatever that explains why people make things like this up? Crazy just seems like too simple a word to use.

              I was making fun of the rumor.  Nothing personal.  No need to get upset.

              If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

              You never know when you will get another hit.

                  That seems to fit her perfectly!  If she is lying then I would personally look the other way if her lottery office pool gave her exactly what it is she is loudly asking for!

                    I might take some video footage of her receiving a good "dose". I would then sell the righteous flick on E-bay to the highest bidder, and

                    turn over all the proceeds to the lotto pool for a job well done!   Cheers    Green laugh    LOL

                            I read that in Maryland you can claim anonymously, so we should never know who the winner is right?, unless they are an idiot

                            That is a big ditto for me! I Agree!

                                    1 ticket with 1 winner is the only way to go!  In my eyes, only the childish people whine about 1 person winning BIG!

                              SmashI don't play raffles, I play MM and Powerball because of the chance to win very large amounts of money!

                              I have played the same way since 1986!Patriot
