CHICAGO (CBS) — Eighty-five Illinois Lottery winners last week probably thought they were lucky — until they tried to cash in their winnings, that is.

Their checks, totaling $159,000 in lottery winnings, were no good.

I would be suing the state. Either pay up my money or I want some state park acreage.

What?

Translated: wait for the screams when federal income tax refund checks bounce.

As in, if you file your tax return and you overpaid, you get a refund.

Is there any legal recourse? What about after the state goes bankrupt?

Read the article.

Illinois said it would pay for any banking fees incurred due to a mistake in verifying some security codes.

And that right there is why I would take the lump sum

The State Said they were Not Bounced, rather they were Returned.
Hmmm Kind of Like Calling the Halfrican a Good President
