This one comes from the ‘what goes around comes around’ files… An Oregon woman who allegedly used a stolen credit card to buy a lottery ticket that turned out to be worth $1M will wind up with nothing if she’s convicted. Apparently she lifted the credit card from her mother-in-law, who died over a year ago, and is now up on a variety of charges including theft, forgery, and methamphetamine possession. Aside from being amused by this story, I was also quite surprised to learn that you can charge lottery tickets in Oregon. Many (most?) other state-run lotteries have the good sense to restrict sales via credit cards.
