    Greed

    Rears its ugly head:

    In Maryland, the winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Milford Mill, near Baltimore. Maryland does not require lottery winners to be publicly identified; the Mega Millions winner can claim the prize anonymously.

    But Mirlande Wilson, 37, came forward Sunday and told the New York Post she had bought the winning ticket in Maryland.

    Wilson and her co-workers at a Baltimore-area McDonald's restaurant pooled their cash to buy tickets, but, according to the Post, the woman claims she won with a ticket she bought for herself and has no intention of sharing.

    “We had a group plan, but I went and played by myself," Wilson, a single mother of seven, told the newspaper. "[The ‘winning’ ticket] wasn’t on the group plan."

    “She can’ t do this to us!” Suleiman Osman Husein, a shift manager and one of 15 members in the pool, told the Post. “We each paid $5. She took everybody’s money!”

    The woman refused to show the alleged winning ticket, saying she would present it to lottery officials Monday. But a clerk at the 7-Eleven where Wilson bought tickets said lottery officials who reviewed the store’s video believe a man bought the winning ticket, the Post reported.

    Not the first time this has been claimed after a group win.....

    Always get it in writing and always make sure everyone has a photocopy of every ticket the pool paid for.

    Really, what is she going to do with all that money all by herself.

    They just had a court case over this same thing,the guy that claimed he won on a ticket that wasn't part of the group buy lost,he had to pay the other people,but for some reason it wasn't an equal split.
    This lady id full of it,she will find out real quick when she claims the money and all her assets are frozen by a court until the lawsuit is heard

    I understand her greed, who would want to share 220 million with 15 other people, my goodness...who could live with just 14.6 million?
    I'm telling you...people expect too much these days.

    An extensive collection of highly sought after collectible happy meal toys, and she probably didn't buy very many happy meals.

    How is this greed? If the winning numbers are not on the photocopy in the safe and that as given to every participant, then the winning ticket is HERS

    I have a club at work and we all chip in for 'tickets'. We all understand that we may buy our own tickets as well as having 'club' tickets.
    Copies are made of the tickets purchased for the club, everyone gets a copy ahead of the draw date, and each individual signs for that week's ticket copies.
    Not everyone plays every week, but any tickets/winnings are clearly copied and signed for...we all understand why.

    Hopefully, this group did something similar.
    But if you had a club like this and won THAT much money, why not share...don't have to, but how much is enough?

    Is there a photocopy in a safe? We don't know.
    Was there a group plan? Even she admits there was.
    Were the participants in the group given a copy? Again we don't know.

    So, there was a group plan but she "played by herself."

    Conclusion? You decide.

    I was in a group plan and I played by myself as well. I wasn't aware this was against the law.
