I was looking at old LP articles and stumbled upon an October 2007 story about a fake lottery ticket. The ticket was fake as you can see for yourself in the link below. Obviously the NY Lottery refused to pay.

 I became curious how it ended because at the time of the article, "the winner" Patricia Manzitto had just got herself a lawyer to help get her "her money."

So naturally I googled her name up and what I discovered was very interesting. It turns out that a little over 4 years later, November 2011, her husband won $3M from a scratch off and this time it was not a fake. http://www.27east.com/mobile/article.cfm//Westhampton-Beach-Surrounding-Areas/404745/Westhampton-Couple-Wins-3-Million-Lottery-Prize

There was no mention of what happened to the initial claim of $25,000.

That money's gone fo ever

    A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

      I thought so too.

      I wonder why the reporter never bothered to include the story from the fake lottery ticket. Reporters of small town newspapers don't go deep enough.
