No ticket, no payout. What do people think? How can you collect on assumptions and no winning ticket to show?

People are crazy and will try anything. What does ticket order have to do with anything?

246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

    Nice try guys but if you did not check the winning tickets with another retailer or at a latter time and threw out the winning ticket, you lose.

      Yikes, they have the losing tickets?

        Onyango owes Cambria a half million but Cambria doesn't deserve it, he should have checked the tix. himself.

        Jersey can tell these guys to go jam it !

         

        It's true that Jersey can be slow to update their site, everyone that uses the site knows that,

         but the dates are there and plain to see.

         

        In any case I hope the c-store  gets their prize for selling the winner, don't try and weasel outta that JERSEY !

            I find it funny that they only tossed one ticket not all three and it just happens to be the "winning ticket". Roll Eyes Hey you never know though, they might win their case. lol

            But let's say hypothetically they do win. How much money are they going to get after attorney fees, taxes and splitting the win amongst the both of them? Probably not a lot. So this should probably be a lesson to them to not toss their tickets in the garbage before they actually take the time to check them.

              On March 23, 2013, Onyango bought three tickets, keeping two for himself and turning over a third to Cambria. The friends say they can prove the ticket that went to Cambria is the winning one because it was the middle ticket of three they purchased that day. Onyango kept the other two tickets, which include their serial numbers.

              The story doesn't mention a 5 + 0 winning ticket that wasn't validated, but if there is one, the lottery knows exactly when and where it was bought. Without one, the two men are wasting their time, but if an unclaimed ticket was sold in the same store at the same time Onyango bought three tickets, they have the beginnings of a case.

                No Ticket, No Money: Remember willis willis. I hold on to tickets,until the next day. To make sure if they are winners or not.

                  They still don't have the beginnings of a case because the clinchers are:

                  1. They didn't have the sense to check the date of the numbers on the website. Unless they can prove there's a law that the lottery websites are required to update the numbers within a certain timeframe they have no case. And as long as the date of the draw of the numbers posted is there, they can't blame anyone but themselves.

                  2. It's their responsibility to keep, and present, a signed ticket to the lottery commission. They weren't scammed. They weren't robbed at gunpoint. A fire didn't break out and incinerate the ticket. They opted to throw the ticket away.

                  3. They also had the option to double check the numbers directly on the MM website. They didn't.

                  Pretty soon you're going to have people suing for money on tickets they lost or allowed to expired if this is ever allowed to go forward.

                        You know this story is probably true my mom threw away a pb ticket last year and she won $1 million dollars on the ticket.

                        The lottery office can look at video and clearly see you on the video, however if you don't produce the ticket you don't get the money.

                        We tore up the house looking for the ticket but she knew she threw it away some people just don't check their tickets

                          These two guys from New York claim New Jersey had such a ticket that went unclaimed and they want NJ to prove they didn't.  Since they are both from NY I wonder why they didn't check the NY website too since both states sell PB.  Their problem isn't for NJ to prove no such ticket exits but to prove they brought it.  Tickets go unclaimed all the time but states have no obligation to give the prize to any one with a good story.

                            They may have a beginnings of a case Stack- which l may add is going nowhere fast.

                            Unless there has been an incident in the past where a lottery Commission paid out a large sum of money " without a ticket"- these guys are chasing smoke. If they did win, it opens up a can of worms.

                              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                              The odds are about the same.
