You should never ask someone to go get your lottery ticket, but Jose Antonio Cua-Toc was a Guatemalan native who had been living in the United States illegally. He won the lottery in Georgia, but he feared that if he went to claim the money the authorities might catch and deport him. So he asked his boss to get the money for him. His boss went and claimed all the money, after telling the authorities that it was his ticket and he had asked Jose to buy it for him.
