Missed out on a trip to universal studios, movie premier, and a 1 in 8 shot at a car. All because someone alleged I wasn't a college student during when I entered a college related sweep. Even though I submitted my college ID and a copy of a paid receipt. It could happen to anybody. Absolutely don't reveal wins before you have collected them. Or in the case I ever win a million dollars or large sum of cash, EVER.

BEWARE of jealous stalker behavior.
Oh, I never would tell anybody until I collected. Even then, I've only told close family members about my biggest win. But I'd put up with a lot to for a million dollars.

I'd go to the state AG's office if they refused to give me the prize even though I could prove I was a college student. Just stating that if they were going to wrongfully DQ you, you would have no other choice than go to the AG's office might stop them in their tracks.
