    Million-dollar scratch-it bought with stolen credit card

    LOL- once a loser, always a loser

    the whole story: loser linkage

    By CHRIS CONRAD
    Mail Tribune
    A White City woman who won $1 million on a state lottery scratch-it ticket earlier this month won’t collect the money after police discovered that she bought the ticket with a stolen credit card that had belonged to her dead mother-in-law.

    Christina Elizabeth Goodenow, 38, purchased the winning Million Dollar Jackpot scratch-it ticket Oct. 9 at Fair City Market in Central Point using a credit card that belonged to Inez Cornett, who died in Sept. 2004.

    Goodenow made the trip Oct. 12 to Oregon Lottery headquarters in Salem to accept a check of $33,500. The $1 million grand prize is paid out over 20 years in equal annual installments.

    Medford police detectives began tracking Goodenow on Oct. 26 after receiving information that she had used the credit card to purchase items at several gas stations, restaurants and other stores throughout the Rogue Valley, Medford police Lt. Tim George said.

    An investigation determined that she had used the stolen credit card to purchase the lottery tickets. They were able to link her to the scratch-its because she had signed her real name on the back of the tickets, George said.

    Because fraud was involved with the purchase of the tickets, police believe that Goodenow will never be able to collect the prize money. A search warrant served Thursday at her home at the 3200 block of East Antelope Road turned up some methamphetamine, but very little money, George said.

    No. Why would I kid about it? If you bought a lottery ticket with a stolen card and won a million bucks then had it taken away plus get arrested wouldn't you think it sucked? lol
