Winning isn't everything.
It's more likely you'll get struck by lightning than win the Powerball — but if you do win, there is an even better chance that you'll go broke.
Ms. D, aged 70
Ms. D, aged 70 when she won her big jackpots costing up to $200,000. Everyone congratulated her for such good luck. But due to her blind trust in her 5th daughter, she gave her all of the money to help her rebuild the house she is living in and dividing the money for other siblings.
However, the daughter didn't do what they've decided. She took most of the money and leaving little to fix the old house. And after just 1 year, all of the money has gone and she even had a huge debt that can't be paid by her own.
Now Ms. D living in poverty and anger of the other children who didn't receive any money from her.
Winning is not everything
But Ms.D was lucky. The man named T, who won 13 prices of lottery is a truly tragedy. He gave a little money for parents and spent most of the rest on marrying a pretty girl, buying fancy cars and houses.
Due to his behavior, the money gone quickly, leaving a man now is nothing but a alcoholic and a.buser. His wife left him and their son, and T beat his parents on a daily basis.
Many went to jail for the sudden big money
Can't bear his crazy, alcoholic brother anymore, T's brother stabbed him to end all of their grieveness.
Ad the price for 13 winning lotteries is their parents losing both of their son, one did.ed, one going to jail.
In 3 cases, Mr. V can't be considered the luckiest even though he's not in debt. He was 50 years old when he won his $200,000 lottery. Trusting his wife and children, he gave them all of the money.
And the rest, you can guess. They spent all of that "god-sent" money without giving the original owner a penny.
Mr.V, who couldn't bear begging for his money from the ones he used to trust anymore, filled the file and sued them.
