Random Ridiculousness: Woman Popped for Pulling Hoax and Lying About Winning Lotto

Posted by Bossip Staff



This woman decided to pull a prank and run around Burlington Coat Factory in Ohio lying to everybody. The loony lady was saying she won the Lotto and was going to pay everyone’s tab:

A Central Ohio woman created a panic and mess Tuesday after telling everyone in a store that she just won the lottery and was going to give the money away. The woman had called to get a limousine to pick her up at her apartment and drive her around, stopping at the Burlington Coat Factory on East Main Street. The woman told everyone in the store that she was going to pay for all of their purchases.

People started talking and soon, there were hundreds of people in the store and even more outside, assuming the woman was going to pay for their items. Officers were called to disperse the crowd. Police discovered that the incident was a hoax. The woman didn’t win the lottery. She was arrested and could be charged with inducing panic and possibly fraud.

SMH@ people loading up their shopping carts and thinking she was going to take care of the bill.

I don't know what the hell Bossip is but that's lazy journalism.

No mention of the fact that once they found out they weren't getting free crap they decided to riot, loot and trash the store. What was the reason for that? Scumbags.

There was a lot of speculation on the talk shows today that the rioters were in on it. She set them up for a free shopping spree and many of them got away with merchandise.

Bossip was the only non AP link I could find with the story. There have been very few details. No one wants to be branded rascist!

I seen an interview with the lady's daughter on TV. The mom clearly has alot of mental issues and needs to get help.
