March 31, 2012: Last night ONE PERSON won the $650 MILLION Mega Millions Lottery . . . and one woman took to Twitter to BRAG about winning.
The woman, a model named Melissa claims that SHE WON - and she posted pics of her lottery ticket.

UPDATE****3 winning tickets sold.....
The only picture you would see of me would be that of my lawyer.
I can’t imagine people identifying themselves to the public so quickly. I’d think one would want to become invisible so fast just to protect their family.
She’s gonna have more “friends” than she ever imagined.
She isn’t too bright, but she is also very not guilty.
The tickets say NY Lottery Commission. I thought the winners were in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.
I think I would give a good bit of it away before anyone even knew I had it. Give some to my parents, pay off my sister’s house for her, money to local charities. I would buy the old gas station down the street and open up a bait shop for someplace to hang out.
At this level, I’d put 24x7 armed guards at the parents’ houses.
I think it's supposed to be some sort of joke, a rather stupid one at that.
And the nail polish doesn’t match in both pics ... looks like a fake..
Maryland had a large powerball winner (bought Christmas Eve 2011) and even though the winner lived in PA, they bought the ticket in Maryland and per Maryland law, did not have to have their identity published.
I would think that Mega-Millions is probably the same way.
Why would you assume that both pictures purport to be taken on the same day, or even in the same year? One suspects, naturally, that there are a lot more publicity hounds out there than hot twenty-something lottery winning models.
I’m so happy for her!
Now she can afford a manicure!
Or is she just a model recognizing an opportunity to get her picture out there?
The tickets were purchased in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland.
The ticket in the photo is from NY.
I can’t believe people are dumb enough to fall for this obvious fake.
Now she can afford ME...
