Lottery Winners Who Were Ultimately Losers

Jose Cua-Toc


Jose Coa-Toc was an undocumented immigrant in the US from Guatemala. He bought a winning lottery ticket in Houston in 2010, but asked his boss to claim his winnings on his behalf, for fear he would be exposed as an illegal immigrant and deported. Predictably, his boss claimed the winnings and kept them, saying the ticket was his all along, but was forced to give it back following a court case in 2012. Cua-Toc was, however, jailed for threatening his boss and his family.
