You may have seen this already, but it’s just too good not to share:
The link above goes to digg.com, mainly because I like their headline. But here’s a summary from the original article from the local news station in Oregon that apparently carried the story:
Prosecutors said Christina Goodenow, of White City, used a credit card that belonged to her then-boyfriend’s dead mother to buy a winning $1 million Scratch-It ticket in Oct. 2005.
Goodenow asked lottery officials to keep her win quiet, claiming to be a victim of domestic violence. But police learned of the crime about two weeks later, as Goodenow continued to use the stolen credit card.
How dumb is that? You win a million dollar lottery, and you keep using a stolen credit card? Wow. The worst part is the ticket was – according to the story – purchased in 2005, and they’re just now getting to the court case.
