An Oregon woman went to the state's lottery HQ earlier this month to claim the first installment of a $1 million prize she'd won with a ticket. She took the $33,500 and ran -- the only problem being she'd bought the winning ticket with a stolen credit card. Apparently the woman used her mother-in-law's card -- her mother-in-law that died over a year ago. So a lesson for stupid criminals everywhere: stick to cash. And to whoever stole all those numbers from CardSystems: don't buy lotto tickets.
