Synopsis: Man named Abraham Shakespeare (cool name,  right?)  gave fellow employee his money to buy lotto tickets for him one of the tickets won $30 million in the Florida Lotto. Now the man who bought them for Mr. S says that he wants $1 million and has said that Mr. S stole the ticket from his wallet calling him a liar and thief.  Mr. S had responded by slapping him with a $100 million slander suit. I don't think it will go far but mabey this might stop future crazy lawsuits against lotto winners. Anyways here's a link:

You can google Abraham Shakespeare if you want to read further just found the story amusing.

    More fuel to the fire to say why folks should never do this.

    Just about anything involving 'friends/family' and the word 'money' AND the word 'lottery' usually does not come out good.

      Greed has the power to change a good person into a bad person.

        That is so true Jackpot the word Money will change the mind and heart of some people.

        This is one reason why I would never buy a ticket of any sort for anyone.
