Stack- Key word...... " her ticket"

I don't know and can only go by what I read.

"Last year's Mega Millions statement about the winning ticket said, "It was actually Orender's mother, Etta Urquhart, who took his $2 and bought two Mega Millions tickets at Stuarts Oak Street Mobil in Bakersfield."

Whomever really owned that ticket should make anyone stop and think before "allowing a trusted family member to sign".

    i didn't read that whole story but i just wondering how someone could do that to their mom, shoot that mom would probably gave her boy anything he wanted very sad.

    Apparently she didn't like how he was spending his, hers, or their (pick one) money and sued him.

    They settled out of court and probably one of those strange stories we'll never hear what really happened.

      Stack- l did not post this question with this case in mind.l just thought that there is a possibility that this could happen to any lottery winner. For instance- what if one won the Lottery and had a " major stroke"- heaven forbid.Sure you have an entire year to collect, but the money could come in handy right now,Think of the Hospital bills, Convalescence- the works. You know that its gonna add up, problem is: One cannot sign- so who does? Obviously someone whom you can trust or does one say " back off family- l am going to ride this baby out- no one touch my ticket".Angry

        Answer: you injured your hand & fingers on the job.You asking a "trusted" family member Not unless you feel there is no such thing as a trusted family member.
        Its been said " Money reveals the true nature of a person".if you can't trust family whose left?-answer that.

            No  I would not trust a family member or anybody else for that matter with a winning ticket. I know better. I am adopted and wouldn't trust my adoptive nephew who lives with me, as far as I can throw him.. He is too <snip> greedy..

             

            That is why I am looking for another place to live.

            I would  sign the ticket first, which I do as soon as I buy one, and cash in the ticket, not right away though, and finally get my life moving in the right direction..

              Answer money changes the most trusted person in your life....even if I couldnt use one hand I'd use the other...I'd stick a pen between my toes if Id had to....You cant trust people in situations that they'd never been in before...You dont know how they will act

                  It comes down to "who can you really trust" and her husband was there when she apparently asked her son to sign the ticket.

                  Your scenario does create a different dilemma because if the winner can't sign the ticket, they couldn't sign legal trust forms either and have a lawyer validate the ticket.

                    If it came down to me needing a family member to collect the money out of necessity, I would 100% trust them(siblings and parent). Aside from the trust that we have in each other, we're all religious people. Never in a million years would any of them betray me like that.
