more likely scenario is the boyfriend hit it and gave it to her to cash since he owes back child support or taxes. her family and or friends knew she never plays the lottery so she had to make up this fable that this was her first purchase to protect the no good boyfriend from being dunned.

You're probably right faber! LOL

      Usually when you win $1,000,000 on a scratch ticket it means you have won $50,000 over 20 years. So if you want it lump sum then you immediately lose $350,000 (this is true in MA). Don't forget that IRS and State Tax collector are waiting to pounce on that $650,000 check (25% Federal taxes + 5% State taxes) leaving you with about $455,000.

      Hello fellow Massahole (lol)

       

      well in that case then her net should be even lower since federal tax is at 40% plus additional state taxes. All of that from a $650,000 check which ends up being half of that. That's just insane.

        That sounds more believable than somebody who never plays buying a $20 ticket their first time.

          Congratulations to her, but man, only keeping 41 percent. That's pretty bogus. I was in Australia a few years ago and noticed that all gambling winnings down there are tax-free, since gambling is not considered income. You could win $2,000 on a video slot machine (or "pokies") and they'd cut you a check on the spot. Then again, they only have 1/12th of the population the U.S. has.

            story hard to believe. no one buys a 20.00 ticket the first time they play. they start with 1.00 or 2.00 tickets 99.5% of the time one would think and graduate upward when they get greedy. probably been a closet scratch player for years and just made the story up for attention, which is foolish on her part if she did. boyfriend probably plotting some scheme to get a chunk into his pocket asap. disney world is for children. no sane person over 21 would go to that sinkhole of a place.

            I Agree!

             

            Go to Universal. Better yet, she could go to Carowinds.

                thanks ridge, this story smelled as soon as i read it. todd didn't check his sources on this one. (he's good but can't check everything) legitmate lottery stories are needed to keep this site going, but a 10 year old could see through this one as phony as a 3 dollar bill.

                    Everybody reads a story oneway but i read a story more accurately from a different point of view. This lady comes here to claim she only scratched once and won $1m yes she is a very very lucky lady indeed. But OMG she does not even know how to count her scratches.She claims her boyfriend does all the scratches before while she sits on her butt watching him and thinks that she is not liable or responsible for all his scratches.Her boyfriend has scratched like 5000 and i find you lady guilty of half of that like 2500 scratches. And even if you don't have a boyfriend i find you guilty of the full 5000 scratches anyway because you don't know how to count your scratches. The lottery department will love you because they know the first scratch is always sweet and free and yours being so sweet and nice the first scratch they know you will come back alot for more scratches one is never enough. if am your boy friend i will take fifty percent of your winning and walk away and find a new girlfriend that hasn't used up all her lucky scratch charm in one hot shot. Right now you are like a blackhole that will start to consume everything arround you plus thoes things you need and don't need and never produce good fortune anymore. So learn to count your scratches lady this is my opinion. lol  No Pity!Hippy

                              I agree. I only bought a scratcher one time and it was for a dollar or two (and regretted it).
