I never buy tickets in stores, I only play by subscription. This story supports ny position.

Which state lottery sells scratch-off subscriptions?

    The store owner is being GREEDY, but on the other hand she should NOT have signed a single thing.  He knew what he was doing when he had her sign that paper. 

    So basically she may have to suck it up and hand over those funds.

      When someone asks me for money for doing nothing even relatives I tell them to "go to hell", this is just another story that supports my position.  It may be rude but rude people need to be treated rudely.

        Rereading this story it seems that not only should this case be immediately thrown out, I think the Feds need to get involved and arrest this man. He made this woman sign that paper under the pretenses that she needed to do so to get the prize, he clearly had this ready to go and has probably done this before. They need to shut his store down and if applicable, deport him.

          Before they deport this guy V let him serve some time in General Population. . Far too many of these lowlifes think that having a Green Card entitled them to pull all sorts of crap & get away with it.l am surprised that the Judge did what he did,makes no sense . Maybe it was on a Friday and he wanted to get out of the city ASAP to Tahoe on a blind date. It's a 3-4 hour drive..

            If a cashier asked me how much he would get.  I would say All the losers i've purchased here.  You're up about 500+  so NOTHING

              Should be a law for some of these store owners, always trying to steal from

              people.  We play year round sometimes we win nothing, and when we do get a good win they

              want half.  He already go his 1% take that and  be happy.

                When the jackpots get high, I try to stay away from the people who want to form pools because I don't want them to think I'm rude when I say "no".

                  Simply saying "no" isn't rude, it's telling them where to go that's rude but it make the point clear enough that you're not likely to be asked again.

                    I think that neither him nor her are telling the whole truth.

                    But I do think that she owes him nothing, not a penny.

                      There's no reason for this to go to court. First you put the clerk in a lobster trap because he'll do it again to someone else, then they should put the money in a trust for the kids so no other low life can try to scam her later.

                        similar story happened to me when i bought a $10 dollar scratch and win ticket and gave the clerk a $20 dollar bill,immediately the clerk said if you win half is mine and then he gave me $10 dollar change back to me. i refused to take ten dollars back and i said you have short changed me,clerk said the cost of ticket is 10 dollars and you gave me 20 dollars and i give you back 10 dollars,then i said NO,you owe me 15 dollars he said WHY, i explained him if you want to have half of my winning then you pay half of the ticket, so give me 15 dollars back not 10 dollars,he understood the mistake of asking me 50% of my share of winning , but not contributing any thing .then i told him if i win i will keep all the winning and YOU get NOTHING as you did not pay a single cent then he did not say nothing and kept quite.

                          Red, I will respectfully disagree with you on the going to court. The whole thing is a cluster f**k from the get-go...this one said, this one heard, this one promised, this one signed.....while we can't fix stupid...let the courts address it, both will be losers of some sort, both are paying Atty fees & court costs....and after this mess is all said and done???
                          Guess what ?? We will have the same thing happen again in another state/location because people don't take the time to educate themselves or think before they open their mouths/make promises/enter into verbal agreements or read documents before signing or even get a copy after.

                              We are talking California Law,  there is that lunacy to contend with.

                              The Judge freezing the assets, says it will move forward to trial.

                              Anyone know if both persons were given exact executed copies of the contract?

                              Not a fan of the lady going public with comments. She should have been warned to neither admit or comment during trial time.

                              As a lawyer said once, you can't get in trouble for what you do not say.
