$600 Million Unclaimed

I’m Jack Brown at the WBFH News Desk.

A New Hampshire woman has left over $600 million unclaimed from the New Hampshire Powerball lottery.

The woman, currently under the identity of Jane Doe, claims that a “huge mistake” was made when she attempted to claim her earnings and is now looking to claim her winnings anonymously. A state representative told NPR that “The state’s ‘Right to Know’ law allows them to reveal the identity of the person whose name is written on the ticket. But a loophole would let the winner’s identity be shielded if the name of a trust is written on the back of the ticket instead”. However, it seems too late to collect the money through a trust, as she had already written her own name on the back.
