Nurse Told She Was Powerball Winner, But Later Learned It Was a Prank


*This is so cold-blooded. Straight up. And to think the prank was pulled off by her own son.

He needs his ass whupped!

Here’s how it all went down. The manager at Park Avenue Health & Wellness Center in Pomona told reporters one of his staff members had just won the Powerball.

And according to David Levy, who is an administrator at the facility, everybody was on high; celebrating like crazy after the woman received a call from her son saying she was the winner.

The son even sent a picture of the alleged winning ticket, Levy said. Pardon the pun, but the “poor woman” went home thinking she was a member of the 1 percent — only to find out her son had pulled a prank on her, the daughter said.Of course this was riding on the heels of the fact that lottery officials claimed that three people had won the outrageous $1.6 billion jackpot — in California, Tennessee and Florida.

Russ Lopez, a spokesman for California Lottery, said he was rooting for the nurse to be a winner. Of course that was before the truth came out.

“I certainly hope it’s her. That would be a great story,” Lopez said, adding “But Twitter is going crazy with fake tickets, and people have to take claims with some skepticism until we verify the winner.”

I am glad I wasn’t there to see her face once she learned the truth. And her son is lucky his mother didn’t have a heart attack.

No one has stepped up to claim the winnings as of this writing.
