Fox News- An illegal immigrant allegedly swindled out of his $3 million lottery jackpot win will finally collect his prize, the Daily Mail reports. The man won the jackpot after purchasing a lottery scratch card at N&K Quick Pick in Spring Valley, N.Y., on Feb. 3. Three of the store's workers had allegedly tricked the man by telling him he'd be deported if he tried to collect his winnings. "When he presented the ticket, they scared the hell out of him," Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe told the Daily Mail. Atif Ali, 22, Riaz Khan, 45, and Mubeen Ashraf, 22, tried to convince the man that he should name them all as co-purchasers, according to prosecutors. The three then allegedly claimed the money and cut the man out of the deal, the website reports. Zugibe told the website that the man is entitled to cash in on the prize even though he is an undocumented immigrant.
Question, is he getting deported along with those winnings? Should be right, I mean he's still an illegal immigrant, a newly rich one, but an illegal one at that. Like hey, here's $3 million dollars, now have fun finding a way to spend that in rural Mexico while fending off drug lords.
And since when did lying for profit become such a looked down upon skill? Like these 3 entrepeneuring convenience store employees found a loophole and took advantage of it...is that so wrong? I mean people have been doing that for centuries in America, we used to name buildings, schools, and libraries after the likes of the Carnegies, Kennedys, and Rockefellers, you're trying to tell me these guys didn't cut a corner, or sneak through a loophole or two on their way to the top? Please. If our economy is ever going to recover we need to get back to the cutthroat, every man for himself, profit chasing of yesteryear, and we can start by making sure these three convenience store clerks get all the money that is rightfully theirs.
