New England woman unknowingly throws winning $ 1 million scraper

All right, if this story doesn’t restore some faith in humanity, I don’t know what will. And, for the record, you read that title correctly, and the story gets even crazier than that.

According to Good News Network, it all happened in March at a small grocery store in Southwick, Massachusetts. Lea Rose Vieda had come in and bought a scratch ticket. She stood there, scratching at her ticket, then realizing it wasn’t a winner, handed it back to the store clerk who threw it into a pile of already scratched tickets.

A few days later, as the employee rummaged through the pile of used tickets, he noticed that one had not been fully scratched. Thinking it was a bit strange, he decided to finish scratching it. When the final ticket number was revealed, it quickly became apparent that this ticket was a million dollar winner.

The clerk, who happened to be the store owners’ son, was able to track down Lea Rose and told her that her parents needed to speak to her as soon as possible. When she walked into the store they said the ticket she threw was actually a huge winner. She couldn’t even believe it … What’s even more impressive is that the store remembered who the ticket belonged to and were so outspoken and honest to make sure she got it back.

Lea Rose says she’s going to put some money aside for her retirement fund and of course rewarded the store for helping her realize that she was a millionaire. The store also got a $ 10,000 lottery bonus for selling the winning scratch ticket.

Oh, and did we mention that just a few months ago Lea Rose Vieda almost died from COVID-19? Talk about a full 180 someone’s luck. We wish Lea Rose and the owners of Lucky Stop, the plague where the ticket was bought, all the best and all good karma befall them!
