  • Nov 20, 2018
  • Monetary Loss: $1,000
I was led to believe the scratch off lottery game flyer I received in the mail today, november20. I scratch it and win 1000 dollars. I call the number and find its only valid till the 19th. I walk around and talk to my neighbors and find out they all got these worthless scratchers. I am certain that this is intentionally sent out late so that not a single person wins.
