Woman recovers US $ 1 million lottery ticket she threw away without properly verifying – fr


SOUTHWICK, MASS. –A Massachusetts woman who accidentally threw away a million dollar lottery ticket finally got her winnings back thanks to the kindness and honesty of the owners of the store where she bought it.

Lea Rose Fiega bought the $ 30 Diamond Millions scratch ticket in March at Lucky Stop convenience store in Southwick, near her workplace.

“I was in a rush, during the lunch break, and I just scratched it real quick, and I looked at it, and it didn’t look like a winner, so I handed them the ball,” he said. she said Monday.

The ticket was behind the counter for 10 days.

“One evening, I was going through the tickets in the trash can and found that she hadn’t scratched the number,” Abhi Shah, the store owner’s son, told WWLP-TV. “I scratched the number and it was $ 1 million under the note. “

Fiega is a regular customer, so the family immediately knew who had dumped him.

Shah went to see Fiega at work.

“He came to my office and said ‘my mom and dad would like to see you,’ she said. “I said ‘I’m working’ and he said ‘no you have to come’. So I went there and that’s where they told me. I was totally in disbelief. I cried, I hugged them. “

Fiega said overcoming a near-fatal fight with COVID-19 in January was like “winning the lottery,” so she feels doubly lucky.

“I mean, who does that?” They are great people. I am more than blessed, ”she said.

The store receives a bonus of $ 10,000 from the state lottery commission for the sale of the winning ticket. Fiega said she gave the family an additional reward. She keeps the rest for retirement.
