Im not sure if anyone recalls the 500 million blockbuster scratch off from texas but a while back I was flagged down by an older gent who had just won the million dollar prize. He showed me the ticket and I confirmed it was a real million dollar winner and he let me hold it. It was unbelievable!  I thought my gosh he bought the ticket from the same place I do wish it wasme. Anyway I handed the ticket back to him and told him not to say a word to anyone and go straight to lotto hheadquarters.

If you wont stand behind our troops, then stand in front of them!

      You did the right thing. 

      I was stationed at Ft Sam the last six months of my  two years military career back in the late sixties and I never saw so many old men that had rolls of money and didn't know how to count it.  I must have looked trust worthy because every time I went down town one of them would come up and show me their money.  I always thought they would trying to pull a pigeon on me so I would tell them almost the same thing "Take care of that roll and don't be showing it around" and headed on my way.

        One can print fake winning ticket and try people's honesty by showing the ticket to people. Although, it can be dangerous, if some jerk will try to hit or even kill for a million dollar ticket. :(

          RJOH,

          When I read the OP the first thing I thought of was some kind of 'gypsy scam'...... "I can't cash this, could you help me out....."

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    It was definetely the real deal. I confirmed through the stores cashier and it was a big deal cuz they got like 10gs from selling it. This was no scam. The old folks actually lived in my subdivision.
