Say someone wins a huge jackpot!  Like over $100 million.

 

And you are a complete stranger to the winner.  You don't know them and they don't know you.

 

You find out their mailign address and send them a letter asking them to help you out with some money.

 

Is that ok to do??  Is it Legal??

 

 

perfectly legal - perfectly tacky.  Frown

love to nibble those micey feet.

    what if that winner was you? would you mind?

    If I won over 100 million, and someone found out my mailing address... the letter will be returned as undeliverable since I will have moved with NO forwarding address.

    Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

      The problem is usually those who do not experience such injustices personally, assume they must not happen.

        If you win the lottery and get letters asking for money, save them as they will be among the things you give to the police if anyone you don't know starts to give you trouble.  Wonder if lottery security helps out jackpot winners who feel threatened by bottom feeders begging for free cash.  The Lottery Winner Protection Program.

          i do security work.one night i bought mcdonalds and had a few extra minutes so i parked at the walgreens next door for a few minutes before i had to go inside and buy a couple of sodas for work that night.well i bit into a fry and i have a knock on my car window and next thing you know you know boom i am slammed to the pavement and told i am a suspect in a robbery that happened there last week just because i wore all black and had a black car.they manhandled me and roughed me up for a while enough to where i pissed all over myself and was told over and over that they already knew i did it and i'm gonna go to jail for 20 years.well finally when i told him i was a security officer he asks how i could afford the car i was driving and i told him lottery winnings and he says "bullsh*t".he dumped all my stuff onto the pavement and did not pick it up.finally he says to watch my step and drives off leaving me sitting there in the parking lot.i went straight downtown to lodge a complaint.i called a lawyer the next morning and was told that if i filed a lawsuit i would be watched closely and followed a lot by other police.i finally said to myself maybe that cop had a bad night but i lost a lot of trust in them.i know one thing i don't go to that location anymore.the thing is i didn't do anything and feel i was violated but i let it go.....

          Thats what im talking about.

          Cops have no right to do that.

          I know how you feel LottoMike. 

           One day I took my BMW to get serviced and on the way back I was passing a public housing area and a Metro police car stopped me and being on a busy street I had to pull into the housing area. Everybody and their mother came out to see if they knew who it was being stopped by the police. At the time I was in the military and had IL tags on my car. He ran my tags as TN and they came back to another car. He asked me to step out of my car. when I got out he slammed me into my car and handcuffed me, searched me, put all my belongings on top of my car. then he took me back to his car and put me in the back seat. another police car came to help him out. they stood behind the car I was in to talk. I'm guessing about what they were gonna do with me, meanwhile my wallet, cell, and everything I had in my pockets is sitting on top of my car in front of us. The 2 of them go up to my car and start searching it. I'm sitting back in the police car wondering if they're trying to plant something in my car since I can't see what they are doing in it. finally they come back and the cop that came to help left. The police officer then gets in and starts writing a ticket. I asked him what did I do? and he replies that he ran my tags and they came back to a Mercury Topaz. I asked him if he ran it through IL or TN. He said TN then he ran it again while I was there in the car. I colud have sworn I heard him say TN when he ran it but he said he told Dispatch it was IL. while all this was happening a big mercedes with gold wheels and dark tinted windows and a loud stereo pulled up and stopped to speak to the cop. when he pulled off I asked the cop who was that and just replied nonchalantly, " Oh that's just one of the biggest cocaine dealers in Nashville." I'm sitting here thinking I'm sitting here in the back of a police car for nothing and he could be out arresting that guy. anyway he gives me my ticket and tells me I where to go to pay the fine or if I wanted I could mail it in and if I wanted I could go to court. Of course I went to court. When the court date came I went in and the only thing that happened was the judge asked me if I was military. I told him yes and he told me don't worry about it he was throwing it out??? I don't like police now, atleast in Nashville. I think if I was thinking right I should have gotten a lawyer I probably had a case.

          I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

            I agree with those who say that people are convicted in the press, just for being accused of something.  People like Tom DeLay and Karl Rowe are prime examples.  If the Democrats want to get someone out of power, all they have to do is accuse them of something -- they never have to prove it.  In DeLay's case he was forced to quit his leadership position because some jerky political hack in Texas went on a fishing expedition and kept going back to a grand jury until they got him indicted of something.  Who cares if he's actually guilty?  All they have to do is accuse him.

            I've been visiting this site for a couple of months now and never found a reason to join and post thing...until i read this post.

            If you could turn off your drug addict god, Rush, for 5 seconds you would see what a ridiculous post you've made.  First off...as it pertains to the jerky politcal hack in texas...???  Come on...as has been report a billion times...he's prosecuted 19 politicians before....12 were democrats.  Yes...what a hack he is.  2nd...Tom Delay was not forced to quit his leadership position because of said jerky hack...he was forced to TEMPORARILY step down while under indictment via REPUBLICAN house rules.  Should he be aquitted he will still be the majority leader.  Of course limbaugh won't tell you that cause he wants you to send your 40 dollars to the RNC to defeat the baby killers right?

            secondly...no one accused karl rove of crap.  He's under investigation by a federal lawyer for TREASON...you people want to pull clinton out of office because, an office he was elected to by 48 million americans for lying about something that was NO ONE YOUR BUSINESS in the first place...but you have a damn fit when grand juries and whatnot supena people for committing TREASON????  i don't get it....
