The credit card isn't the key. 

Huh??? Are you just being contrarian? I don't get it, it's the first line in the story:

Credit card purchase key to tracking down winner

Please explain why it isn't the key, and what's really the key.

But as far as your very valid link about not posting news stories to the forums, most long time members already know that. I've even told people not to do it before. I even hinted at it here with my wording but didn't say it outright: "...difference in this news story compared to what you posted in the forums"

Credit card instead of a video with timestamp and everything. Tell that to real cops and they will laugh your behind out of California. Even the woman said on the news, that she was identified from the video. This investigator must be smoking the same $hit that Mayor Rob Ford was smoking.Crazy

    Contrarian?
    He commented about his previous thread, your comment was the credit card was the key. 
    It appeared he didn't know about the rule, and why Todd started another thread.
    He's 7 months with under 400 post.  Silly me I got the impression he might not know about the rule.

        I'm glad she got her $50 million dollars.  And they are Canadian so it's tax free.  They get all of the money.  It's better than the stories of the unclaimed jackpots that have expired. 

        This has a happy endingBanana

              Very happy ending.

              The credit card was the key, along with video tape, time stamp, dollar amount($16).  But without the credit card they couldn't have traced the purchase back to her.

                  That is why Powerball, Mega Millions and other US state lotteries need to start allowing people to purchase tickets using credit cards so that those announcements about unclaimed prizes can become a thing of the past. Those that offer online purchases already allow use of credit cards in that instance but not when purchasing at a retailer like this lady did in Canada. The kicker is that she actually took home $50 million...not some after tax amount since Canada does not tax lottery winnings.

                  Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                  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!

                      Americans should also be able to pay for lotteries with credit cards. Its the Congress that's holding us back.

                        Although here in NJ, I have seen mom and pops let chasers (scratch ticket afficionados) run tabs and charge them on credit cards as store purchases. Same way the Casinos who hit their ATM max limits, withdraw money from their checking accounts. They charge it as POS Purchases.

                          Absolutely not.   Yeah, that's what I want my tax dollars going for to pay off some addicts credit card bill that was run up with lottery purchases.

                              The two places I buy lotto have cash only signs for lotto purchases in their stores.  But she was lucky that the lotto found her through their investigation.  January will be like a second christmas for that family when they get the lotto check from the lottery.  Congrats and spend it big time.-weshar75
