Do Not Try Gluing Winning Numbers to Your Montana Lottery Ticket
Yes indeed, friends, while it wasn't in Montana, there were two stooges who actually thought this would work.
AP tells us that a couple guys in Mississippi tried to scam the state lottery commission by gluing the winning numbers onto a losing ticket. And they were planning to go big or go home. Or to jail. The altered ticket was an attempt to claim a $100,000 prize that was offered over the weekend. And Mississippi gets pretty cranky over any alterations, considered counterfeiting, in excess of $1,000.
So in that respect, sounds like the fellas did indeed hit the jackpot. I would have loved to have seen their gluing work.
