Man thinks lottery call is a scam until he answers second call. ‘Unreal’

A 57-year-old man from Michigan saw an email saying he had won a $100,000 prize, but he deleted it because he thought it was a scam.

He later received a call from Michigan lottery officials saying the same thing. He hung up and again thought it was a scam.

After receiving a second call from lottery officials, he finally believed his winnings were true. The Wayne County man had won $100,000 in a random lottery drawing, officials said in a March 6 news release.

“It was an incredible feeling and still feels surreal!” he told Michigan lottery officials.

The winner had entered the Feb. 15 drawing by scanning non-winning 500X Money Maker tickets, officials said.

“I scanned quite a few 500X Money Maker tickets for second chance entries,” he told officials.

He plans to use his winnings to pay his children’s college tuition and save, he told officials.

Wayne County is located about 20 miles southwest of Detroit.
