If the money was gotten illegally, it was gotten illegally from the Lottery and should be given back to them and added to prizes won by the people who provided that money in the first place - the lottery players.

    The stupidest thing ever allowed was when they gave Police Departments the right to confiscate money and property for their own use.

    Officer Krupke: "Hey, I really like your car! Mind if I search it?"

          No retailer is allowed to accept anything but cash for lotto purchases. Must have been an uniformed or careless clerk.   Troll

            I thought that was strange too when I first read it because in my state you have to buy tickets with cash. I just assumed that maybe in that state you could do it. If indeed you can't then that would be a good defense against the loss of the winnings.

              Probably used the card at an ATM machine.

               

              This whole paragraph doesn't seem right..

              Oregon allows police to keep money seized in criminal activity. The winnings were awarded to the police when Christina Elizabeth Goodenow, 45, pleaded no contest to using the card that belonged to her boyfriend's mother said.

                You aren't suppose to be able to buy lottery tix with cc'ds in RI... but there are some clerks that let you.  I have no idea how that works out but I suppose that they balance out when they close out their drawers at the end of their shifts maybe?

                    I have purchased tickets using a credit card,  I fill up with gas grab a few items plus a scratcher and pay with a

                    credit or debit card, no problems.   The woman was a thief and should have to repay all the money back to the

                    lottery and the credit card company should get back the dollar or however much the ticket cost and the police

                    should get a pat on the back for catching the thief even though it took them quite a while.  The police should

                    not get to keep anything because they are being paid through our taxes.   We got to start electing people who

                    care about this country before it's too late.
