I've seen a "broken" scanner.

At least I was told it was broken, but it could have just as easily have been unplugged.

I scan everyone of my winners, even though I already know how much I won.   I make it a point to let the clerk see me do it, and if they dont, I tell them "I just scanned this ticket and I won XX.00 dollars."

If the scanner is "broken", because I already know how much I won, I say to the clerk when I hand them the ticket;  "Here' a XX dollar winner."   A snotty clerk once said to me "Well, I'll let the terminal decide that."  I said nothing, except when she handed me my money.  I simply said "Told ya" and walked out of the store.

I Agree!  I simply said "Told ya" and walked out of the store Thumbs Up

 

all the time it don't work i just unplug it and plug it back in,

sometimes the cashier says i can check them for you back here and i'm like No Thanks

          Perhaps the clerk put a piece of tape on the reader so it wont work and players will bring the tickets to her?

                Sometimes when I read stories such as these I get upset at the victims. What is so hard in signing your tickets if you gonna hand them over to the store clerk? or checking the results on the newspaper/website/lottery results hotline? If people just worked a little harder, conmen would be extinct, I think.

                That money's gone fo ever

                  And you forgot to mention asking the clerk for a print-out of the winning numbers! This why I don't always believe a crackhead when he comes along and says... "just give me $5 million, please"

                        the clerks ignored his request for a receipt.

                        Should have known something was up right there!!

                        If a clerk won't hand you over a receipt, call the cops!!

                        The same state that wouldn't allow Chris Hansen from Dateline NBC

                        to do their report on lottery crooks.

                          Immigration status is certainly a legitimate concern.  Glad to see where the authorities prosecuted this criminal act; hoping they'll prosecute the widespread immigration fraud with the same zeal.

                              I thought the same thing.

                              For a lead role in a cage?
