It's getting ridiculous. First of all these players who are becoming victims should learn the game and how to tell a winning ticket from a losing ticket. Also if you're going to hand over a winning ticket to another person it makes sense to write your name and sign at the back of it in ink.

That money's gone fo ever

        There are many ways to check and verify your tickets long before going to the store. Newspaper, online,poster boards in stores where they write the results.

          I actually never sign my winning scratch off tickets. I just use my smart phone and take a picture of it with the winning numbers scratched off and the amounts revealed. For draw type games, I always sign the back of the winning tickets before handing them over.

              Thumbs Up Yessir. It makes no sense to play for years without winning and when you finally do, you just let some guy cheat you off your winnings.

                  These merchants of deception, need to have their licenses, to sell lottery tickets revoked.  Selling lottery tickets, is a privilege not a right. What a bunch of ignoramuses.

                    Many merchants are decent hardworking people. BUT many are crooks and thieves just like so many other entities in the public sector...The ticket scanners can be manipulated also .. Many shops have scanners that work one day and are broken (disconnected) the next... Sadly, You must be on your guard at all times...

                      Of course - but after you play you don't need a clerk to tell you how much you've won.  Learn.

                       I Agree! Also if your going be here learn to speak English.

                        a sure cure for such people and to prevent any more problems , is to bbq the crooks in full site of the public

                            Deporting them does not solve the problem. Deport them today, and in one week they are back in the States again, grinning and sinning as usual, like it is Xmas timeBig Grin Santa.
