A word of advice. Check your own lottery ticket results. Below is an article about how a store clerk told a “customer” (really a police officer) that his ticket was a loser when in fact it was worth $1000. The clerk kept it for himself and then cashed it in the next day. This practice has also been reported on NBC and ABC investigative news. The results for lotteries can be found on-line, in newspapers and in the stores selling lottery tickets. Beware of scams.
