stops you as you're walking into the supermarket and politely asks you if you would purchase her five Mega Millions tickets,aand she hand you a $5 bill

feeling like a Good Samaritan you agree.

when you return back outside the lady is gone' you look around some but she is nowhere to be found

that evening one of the five tickets turns out to be a jackpot winner.

my question is do you search for vera to share? Or say fuk that blind old lady this is my money?

    You sing the Pink Floyd song "Vera" from "The Wall" and go, "Vera, Vera, what has become of you?"

    Then if that doesn't work, you break right into "Money" from "Dark Side of the Moon" while singing (and laughing) all the way to the bank.

          I would have to try to find her, but if i couldn't, i would claim it before the time expired.

            Technically it is your money since she could never prove she gave you the $5 and....tickets are bearer documents

                Since the love of Money is quoted in scripture as being being a root of evil..l doubt an Angel would be involved in this kind of love act unless they were acting independently of Divine Orders..

                  I don't mind a contrary view. Thats why we have these forums. 

                  The alternative to the OPs question would be to go to the lottery and have them issue a press alert for the old lady. That is when the circus would begin. And then the state would most likely end up with that money.

                    Or...just claim the money yourself since if she did pop up she couldnt prove she had a right to it anyway

                          The love of money is the root of all evil

                          Money is not evil

                          I don't think an Angel showing up to give you $5 to buy lottery ticket's is evil or independent of Divine Orders.
