New York man wins lottery only to have ticket stolen

A man in New York State thought he had hit the jackpot. That is, until his winning lottery ticket is stolen by one of his own family members. Now, the accused woman faces up to 15 years in prison. All this lottery winner wanted to do was claim their prize and remain anonymous. Sadly, his trust in his cousin is what got him here in the first place.

The New York Post said the man purchased the $ 5 New York State Lottery Hold ‘Em poker ticket at a 7-Eleven in October 2020. Nassau County officials said that his scratch ticket revealed he was making $ 1 million (that’s where things start to go south). Prosecutors say he asked his cousin to claim the prize so he could remain anonymous. In return, he gave her $ 50,000. It all started to crumble late last year during the tighter COVID restrictions at the time. So prosecutors go on to say that the suspect drove to New York from several states to collect the ticket, which she then mailed.

The Post says she gave her cousin a fake New York Lottery ticket and over $ 13,000 in cash. When asked why the amount seemed so low, she told him that the state took the rest in taxes. Sounds believable, doesn’t it? But a press release on the winning ticket had already come out, and it was noted that she had received a payment of $ 537,440. Something was wrong.

The real winner confronted his scheming cousin about it. That’s when prosecutors say she threatened to sue. But police say the money was in his account from the start. Wow, if you can’t trust your own family then can you trust? No wonder he tried to remain anonymous?
