so, i have a very good friend in a powerball playing state - he never plays the lottery, so i begged him to play for me - gave him our numbers and told him to just play before 11pm - we've been playing since it reached the $100mil mark - so, for the last several wed/saturdays it's been 'we didn't win, play again' - i owe him like $5 for buying the tickets but since he's buying and i'm supplying the numbers we agreed to go half if we win -  sounds cool, okay, fine ---

now GET THIS!! all of a sudden, he's threatening if we win to take OUR ticket and hide out in west Africa [where he's from] and I have to GO THERE and get an injection [yes, it's sex] and then ONLY after that will he fly back and we can claim the prize - mind you, the 'injection' was to be followed with a baby but after i convinced him that I DON'T WANT ANYONES BABY then he reduced it to just an injection -- you know, for fun ... at first I thought he was kidding, I would just say 'hell no' - now, he tells me after he buys that he already signed the back and he's 100% serious, and I know his serious tone and I'm scared! I told him I'd take him to judge judy because those were MY NUMBERS and unique to me - he said to 'bring it on' and 'judge judy isn't in nigeria'

I've since deleted the first email where I asked him to buy the ticket and gave my numbers and told him we will go half --

do I have a case in the event we should win anything? he's my friend but I have ZERO sexual attraction to this man - he makes me shudder to think to even kiss him let alone AN INJECTION!! [his words not mine]- any other male friends, no problem [don't judge] but him, specifically, YUCK - I couldn't do it even for that amount - I'll take it all the way to the supreme court just so NOT to get an injection!!

      I would find someone else to buy tickets for you.  Seems like less of a hastle.

        yeah, whew, just the THOUGHT of money brought out the nigerian crook in him!! it's going to have to be one of those 'oh well situations' i can't believe that he would even put that out as an option to claim when he didn't even know how to play in the beginning, oh well - i'm not playing with anyone so far again, not worth it

          I'm not sure I would be making the general statement "nigerian crook".  I'm sure there are Nigerian crooks, but I'm also sure that most Nigerians are not crooks.  I've made some very good friends over the years from Nigeria, and they have been good hard-working people.

          In general, it is a very bad idea to play the lottery with other people, unless you have a firm, detailed agreement in writing.

          I would not be so overly concerned about this particular situation though.  The chances are extremely high you won't win anything in the first place.  And even if you do, simply take the guy to court.  The lottery will never distribute a jackpot with a case pending.  If he's the dirtbag he sounds like, a well-worded threat from a good attorney may be enough.

          Last, check your Sent Items and Deleted Items folders in your e-mail.  Many times people do not even think to check these folders for e-mails they think are gone.

            Heck, if you are in NJ maybe you should hop on the PATH to 34th Street pick up your own tickets and be on your merry way. That way you don't have to get an injection from Dr. Love and your winning ticket is in your pocket no strings attached.

            I hope that you win. Yes Nod

              You don't own a lottery combination or a winning lottery ticket you didn't buy. 

              This was bought up in another thread.  The poster thought by sharing his picks with other LP members, if they play them and won big, he was due a potion of their winnings.  Mr. Slick figured coming to LP and posting thousands of combinations was almost as good as playing them himself but with none of the cost.  He found out most LP members didn't share his thoughts, they said if they bought a winning ticket the winnings belonged to them and not to anyone who only thought about the combination.

                  That's a very good point, but it sounds like Don Juan already agreed to split the winnings 50-50.

                    The best chance of you winning the jackpot is be an independent woman and  buy your won tickets.  You don't own any numbers..

                    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                    You never know when you will get another hit.

                      I believe Judge Judy only handles small claims cases.

                      Your other comments indicate "very good friend" is misapplied.

                      In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.

                        I don't understand what this is even about. You gave the numbers to a creep making unwelcome sexual advances and you are still dealing with him?

                        Judging from how often my numbers win I wouldn't give him the $5 and have no further contact short of a court order. If you think the numbers are somehow winners I'm sure the drawing will prove otherwise and you can get a new set of numbers to play with tickets you purchase yourself.

                          Judge Judy always say to the women who come to her court claiming they gave their money to man and got mistreated, "If you had watched my show, you would have known better"

                          Personally, I don't know why any woman would consider any man her friend that's not a co-worker, a neighbor or an associate of hers or of a family member that she's not sexually interested in.  Just because she wants him to do her a favor doesn't make him her friend.

                            cut your ties with this guy and buy your own tickets, also once a person knows what buttons to push they will continue to push them. Be smart let it go!

                              If she lucks out and the numbers fall as a 2+1 or 3+0, even the $5 is not an issue.
