This story really gets me wondering.I go to a store every morning before work and get my numbers and almost every morning a winning scratch-off payout printslip is mingled in there.I noticed 2 on the counter this morning and asked if he was the one who wins all the time and he gestured at this other guy(who's in there daily every morning to hang out).His gesture was reluctant however

The part that struck me odd was his startled reaction when I asked that question.hmmmm

    I hope the THIEF gets more than a slap on the wrist!Deportation would be an appropiate punishment after he does some serious prison time.

    How about some torture in between? Where on Earth do you see that he is not a US citizen?  He could be as much as a citizen as you are.

          Sure,he could be as American as me but I'm betting that he's not.

              I've always thought such things but thought I was just being skeptical. Thanx for the reassurance. However I know there may be few good apples in the bunch but not many.

                  OOPS.  That's right up there with the clerk in a California 7-11 who checked a person's ticket (which had won $500,000) but told him he only won $3, and tried to cash in the ticket himself...

                    I think people who don't know what they are doing should not even play the lottery. The scratch offs explain how to determine if your ticket is a winner. If you can't read, please don't play. You can go on line and check lotto and other number games or you can get the 1-800 number to call. I believe you should be able to trust the store clerk but let's face it, everyone cannot be trusted and people can also make mistakes.

                    Also, please write your lotto numbers on play slips. There are some really slow clerks. A friend of mind always has a clerk punch in her numbers. Well, last week she called out 163 and the clerk asked is that cash 3, or cash 4? So, my friend repeated 1   6   3. The clerk still couldn't figure it out.   I rest my case.

                        Must be more to the story. Why bring the ticket to the state fair. I'm guessing he was denied the 15$ at the store. The clerk should of tossed the ticket instead of reselling it.

                        He likely wanted 100% profit from the ticket, so that greedy motivation is perhaps the reason he pocketed the winnings and left the ticket in circulation to be purchased by a customer. He probably said the ticket was defective and therefore not valid. This enabled him to balance his books and still make a decent profit from his scam. Enjoy jail and deportation to Pakistan (just my assumption).

                        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!

                              hey,this is a good story. I will from now on watch out for them in the stores here in NC. Why is it that them kind of people come over here and buy up all the business here in AMERICA. Who is selling America out to them. It piss'es me off that they can come over here and buy up motels,hotels,stores ect. Before long America won't have any American own business here. If we don't stand up to them,we as an American will never be safe here in the USA. Think about how many different ethnic groups of people living here in America right now. We the AMERICAN people have no rights anymore,aclu is making sure of that.

                              One day we will be fighting a different kind of CIVIL WAR,here in America!
