Wow, now that was a burst of clarity. Another way of putting it would be, if you stole my vehicle out of my driveway, it does not belong to you.Approve..or does it? 

A thought has crossed my mind concerning theft and conspiracy to commit theft. This has to do with a major lottery winner and those who want some of it. We have heard the comments, "You did not earn it so what's yours is mine." "That could pay off a lot of debt". Anyone who conspires to steal my winnings is breaking the law. Conspiracy is illegal and can be prosecuted.

     In Louisiana if you make a purchase at a gas station counter, you can use your debit card tied to a bank account to pay for the purchase, then you're allowed to purchase at the same time up to $40.00 in lottery tickets if you tell the cashier you also want to buy lottery tickets with the purchase. Or, use the cash back option up to $100.00 when you're asked by the terminal if you want cash back. 

    All number sets are contenders until the drawing occurs.

      The most realistic outcome is that the lottery winnings will go back to the lottery, because it wasn't legally won. The woman who's credit cards were stolen had no intentions of buying that ticket. The only thing she is entitled to is to be made whole by either seeking prosecution or suing the the thief who stole her credit cards.

          Exactly. I'm surprised there's any question about it. Winnings from illegally obtained tickets aren't paid out to anyone; the lottery adds it to the uclaimed prize fund, or what have you, and doesn't give it a second thought.

          Sure are a lot of wacky suggestions here. Maybe the lottery should pick a random address and leave 25,000 toonies at the front door. Roll Eyes
