Thread: Watch Your Lottery Tickets! Scam!

    Watch Your Lottery Tickets! Scam!

    Best to find a machine where you can verify your own 649, Super 7 etc. The latest scam is for counter clerks to switch your ticket when they go to their machine behind the counter. They verify a non-winner and after you have left the store, scan yours. The story broke on the Fifth Estate tonight but apparently this has happened in the states also.

    Two obvious counter-measures

    1 Check your own tickets on or, if in a store, ask for a printout.

    2 Mark the ticket and ask for it back even if if not declared a winner.

    The best to do

    To make sure:

    1- Check your ticket (mark it as said before) or if you always take the same number then you know it's your ticket;

    2- After validation, take it back with the validation paper and verify your ticket registration number and compare it to the validation number. Have to be the same!

    Good luck!

    When you buy your ticket, write your personal info on the back of it in the space provided. This way no one else can cash it.
