A Houston woman accused of trying to swindle the Texas Lottery Commission out of millions of dollars will head to court Tuesday.

Eva Medina Peralta was charged with presenting a forged lottery ticket in an attempt to cash in on a $17 million prize.

Investigators with the lottery commission and the Harris County District Attorney's Officer said Medina presented the ticket last December.

Peralta now faces two felony counts of lottery violation.

I would like to know how she thought she could forge a ticket.

I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

    Doc,

    Maybe she scammed someone else and thought it was real.  I've read there is a scam going around in Texas where a couple of dumb acting scammers with a fake winning lottery ticket will let anyone scam them out of it for a few dollars.  The scammers get their money and leave and the other persons don't know the ticket is a fake until they try to cash it.
