Winning lottery ticket seller goes into hiding
AFTER a punter from Muar won a whopping RM17mil in a Big Sweep draw, the person who sold the winning ticket has gone into hiding, China Press reported.
The speculation in town is that the ticket seller is an old woman, who fears she would be a target of crooks.
An official of the lottery company in Kuala Lumpur, identified only as Ye, said their Muar representative had scolded her for disclosing details of the winning ticket.
She said that because there were not many lottery representatives in Muar it was easy to find out who sold the winning ticket.
Ye recalled that some years back a Big Sweep representative in Kuala Lumpur became a victim of robbers when it was found that he had sold a winning ticket.
There has got to be a lesson or two to be learned here.
