I think the dim wit who handed over the ticket is to blame........

Maybe so.  But some of those clerks can be pretty rude and intimidating.  And quick and sneaky.

Now figure there is two of them in the same store??  Thats called TAG TEAM wrestling.  The old customer comes in with his or her walker and The Iron Sheik puts the old miser in the Camel Clutch, meanwhile the other brother the "Ayatollah" is doing the switch and those elderly people are just plain Dead, the never had a chance!  The were "Marked" from the getgo.

And I mean like off the top ropes piledriver dead!

They must have devised some nifty ways to confuse, and trick customers.  Especially elderly people.

Lets say the clerk took the ticket pretended to scan and then just threw it in the trash.

Or say they take the ticket, do a fast switch, scan a loser and then throw away the loser.

Perhaps the customer say hey!  I want my ticket back!  Perhaps not.  Or having the switch already been done they give the loser back to the customer instead of the winner.

Not for nothing ronnie, i dont buy scratch offs, because

1) they are a lot of work

2) they are messy as f*ck

3) often after I am done scratching i cant even tell if its a winner or not!

    Oh crap.....I have been buying that ticket trying to win big for over 6 years thinking that winner was still out there somewhere!

    I hope they enjoyed the past six years because karma is coming to kick them in the butt.

    I definately think they are up to no good.  The fact that they still kept that little grocery store open for business in a

    "tough area" is only so the Lottery officials could do the investigation and find nothing.

            Oh, now there is an idea I really like....... 

            It may not serve as an official signature, but it would sure prove who had possession first. Excellent Idea.

              Perhaps they have a black market where they sell off all the smaller winning tickets...  What?

                  Actually just out of a "gut" instinct, I picked up one last QP from a machine today.

                  Hot Lotto, which is now up to $3.9 million. If that comes through this evening, this may well be one of my last official posts. Type

                  Thank you for the sound advice Ronnie316.  May your financial independence be just a few draws away.

                      Unofficial would be the way to go.

                      I would be in fear for my life, with the high number of Patel's on this site.

                        Their type is lurking in the shadows all around my friend, and don't think for a moment that they are not...

                          You have just confirmed my worst fears.

                          Even as I'm typing this response, I can't help but feel that one of them is right behind me now, breathing down my back.

                          Because of my great phobia of Patel's however, I'm afraid to turn around and confront the Patel.

                              Fortunately I visit the gym regularly, should a physical altercation ensue.

                              I don't believe they excel in martial arts, but I should probably bone up on a few classic Bruce Lee moves, just in case.   Chair
