The mother has an older daughter and didn't ask that daughter to solely claim the ticket, or co-claim it with the 21 year old? That makes no sense. 

Her reason for having her daughter claim it is ridiculous. She's only 48 or 49 at the time of the win. Assuming she doesn't die of an ill-timed accident, she has decades of life ahead of her. Certainly a life filled with medical expenses, but a long life nonetheless. Am I to believe her biggest worry was inheritance issues when she's living on disability? 

You'd think she'd take care of her health and get a life insurance policy to cover the kids after she's gone, or set up a good trust fund.

She waited over 2 years to try to stake her claim. Why? 

Sorry but both her story and her reasoning is full of holes. The daughter claimed it and paid taxes on it. Unless mommy dearest has witnesses or corroborating evidence, it's not hers. 

Either she tried to pull a scam and got scammed in return, which I'm okay with, or she's full of it and wants to claim something that isn't hers to claim.

    My aunt had lupus, but she was an avid lottery player. Highly doubt she would've let it get in the way of claiming a big win!

    Sorry, but I have no sympathy for the mom. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree so I have a feeling there is more to this story.

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

        I Agree!

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

        The odds are about the same.

          If someone wants someone else to represent them as a claimant for a lottery prize there is paper work to be filled out even if they are your children.  She should have spent the extra time and money seeking the advice of a lawyer.

            Regardless of who you believe, the mother or the daughter...one thing sticks out to me.  The daughter was living at home during the win and her comment that the ticket was hers, always was and the mom "is not entitled" to a bit of it....  Maybe your mom is not "entitled" but she is your mom who fed and housed you all your life...You mom "deserves" some help (physically or mentally ill) and this daughter is a "LOSER" even if it was her ticket.

            Exactly right, this is nothing but greed. How in the world could you turn your back on family, especially a sick mother. Even if the ticket was the daughter's I'd still take care of my family. One thing is for sure she'll pay one day. Money comes and goes as young as she is my bet is that money will be gone one day because it won't be managed right and she'll regret some things. Unless her mother was an abusive alcoholic non caring mother as a child that may be a different circumstance that no one would know for sure maybe that's why but I would still probably helped in some way. IDK. Money changes some people and greed is all too real in this day and time.

               Oh puh-lease. CPS was created because not every person who brings a child into this world should be a parent. Don't just assume the mother is a saint just because she's sickly. And chances are what the daughter was doing living at home was caring for the mother and her little sister. People with all of her issues need assistance and no way could she afford a private healthcare worker. She has a 29 year old daughter who doesn't appear anywhere in this picture, why? You'd think she'd have something to say if her sickly caring mother got bilked. People hear of a child leaving the mother high and dry and just assume the child is an ungrateful rat. Two sides to this story and the mother's tale of woe makes no sense.

                It's very unlikely that she'll die with an estate that will be taxed, but she could easily die with a millions dollars of debt. Whatever her estate has, including any lottery winnings, will be used towards paying off the debt and there probably won't be anything left for any of the kids to inherit.

                Not that that means her story is any more plausible.

                  Barbara Quiles is suing her daughter Linza Ford for allegedly stealing her New York Lottery Jackpot winnings that her daughter claimed on her behalf in 2012.

                  A woman who identified herself over the phone as Quiles’ sister said, “This is causing her a lot of stress, This whole situation is making her very nervous, she's not doing well."

                  Asked if she still plays the lottery, Quiles said, “I still pick up a ticket or two, but now I go in with a dream but no dollar.”

                      Remember the women in Detroit who was arrested for fraud because she didn't report her million dollars lottery winnings for fear of losing her food stamps and public assistance.  Even her family didn't think she did anything wrong as they said she still need the public assistance inspite of her lottery winnings.  People have funny ideas about money.

                        Not related to this story, but this fits the dumb thieves category.  Thieves stole sunglasses from a car in Seattle, and underneath was a Powerball ticket..turns out it was a million dollar ticket.  Saw that on GMA this morning.

                          Thief steals cheap sunglasses, unknowingly leaves behind $1 million

                          SEATTLE — Among a list of things you shouldn’t leave in your car, a winning lottery ticket tops the charts.

                          Thankfully, for one Seattle couple, luck does strike twice.

                          According to the Washington Lottery, the couple left a $1 million winning Powerball ticket in their car for three months before realizing it was a winner. The ticket, purchased from Iman’s in the 2000 block of NW Market Street in February, sat idle in the car because the couple didn’t realize one could win something other than the jackpot.

                          “We didn’t even think about a second chance prize,” the couple told the Washington Lottery.

                          Over the course of three months, someone even broke into the vehicle. However, all the thief stole was a pair of sunglasses.

                          Sunglasses, the couple said, that were sitting directly atop the winning lotto ticket.

                          “What a close call!” the couple said.

                          When they finally got around to checking the winning ticket on May 14, the couple realized their double-luck. Champagne was popped and Plans were quickly made.

                          “We’re planning a trip to Paris and Iceland for this year,” the couple said.

                          It just goes to show… some people are just lucky.

                            Crazy lady. All that medication screwed her head up and now's she's worried about the money. Don't see how they can sue if the NYL already did their investigation.

                              Wouldnt be surprised if the thief sues, saying it was their ticket that they lost in that car they were breaking into...
