    If the woman who bought the ticket is convicted of any of the charges brought against her, she will forfeit the winnings.

    Talk about DUMB...

    That is odd. In Texas (the state nearest to my own that has a lottery) you have to pay cash for lottery tickets. I didn't realize you could actually buy lotto tickets with a credit card

    add it up

    With stolen card- illegal, dont get any winnings,(jail time)
    With your card- you pay BUT you keep you winnings(no jail time)


    AS long as you dont spend millions on tickets , it ok. Still better then use a stolen card

    The woman already picked up her first check for $33,000 and already spent it all.

    So, she'll have to pay that back (which she'll never be able to).

    P.S. Let's not give M$ anymore money by using MSNBC. CNN! :)

    Wow, some heavy duty irony going on here, between this article and the other one about the woman who hung herself and was mistaken as a halloween decorations.

    Ummm.... No.

    With your own money. You lose (almost guaranteed), and you pay.

    With someone else's money. You lose (almost guaranteed), and you don't pay.

    I like how the article included the oh-so-necessary, " “In the X years I've been with the XYZ Corporation/Organization/Group, this is the first time I’ve encountered something like this.”

    This is a definition of Justice. I hope she gets jail time and the money becomes a fine that will go to the local school system.

    Don't know about going to all fed reserves, but I might want to visit the worlds largest wod of flem!
