A Florida woman won $1,000 in a Second Chance Lottery last month, but has been told she will have to forfeit her prize, as her winning ticket, sent certified mail, never arrived at lottery headquarters
According to a report by WFLA, Sue Burgess was thrilled when she was notified of her win. However, weeks later that joy quickly dissolved. The Florida Lottery informed her that she’ll have to forfeit her winnings. Instead, the prize will go to an alternate winner. The reason: U Updating.
S. Postal Service did not deliver the ticket to lottery headquarters in Tallahassee, even though Burgess sent the package through certified mail, the report said. Burgess told WFLA that lottery officials in Tallahassee told her, “No ticket, no prize,” when she inquired about the missing ticket
According to the report, a second chance lottery winner can snag the winnings with a limited window of time. Due to the pandemic, all local lottery offices were closed when Burgess won on July 29. Burgess followed Florida Lottery’s instructions by sending in her ticket through U. S
Postal Service’s certified mail, thinking it would be safer. Burgess went to Better Call Behnken, a franchise owned by investigative reporter Shannon Behnken, to figure out what happened to her ticket. The report said that “tracking information shows the ticket arrived at 7:12 a.m. on Aug. 12 at a Tallahassee post office,” but the journey ended there, the report said. And, online postal service tracking revealed the ticket was never delivered to the lottery office, which is required to claim a prize, the report noted. According to the report, a Florida Lottery spokesperson emailed Investigative Reporter Shannon Behnken that the “Burgess' claim was never received by the Florida Lottery. ” The email cited the tracking information found on the postal service showing the package is still “in transit, so it was not delivered,” the report cited
The report said Burgess has been urged by the claims processing department to contact USPS for more information on what happened to her package. According to a postal service spokesman, the post office is investigating. Though, they have yet to figure out what happened to Burgess' package. The report cited this statement sent by the Postal Service:“The Postal Service strives to always provide the best possible service to our customers. We apologize to this specific customer for any inconvenience they may have experienced. ”The statement continued: “In this specific instance, we are continuing to work with the lottery office to confirm receipt of the mailpiece,” the report cited Classic Lotto.
The report cited a statement the Lottery sent to WFLA that said, in part:"Ms. Burgess' situation is an usual circumstance and, to our knowledge, no other winner has experienced a similar issue. Because the Lottery did not receive Ms. Burgess' ticket within the seven-day claim period, an alternate winner was selected and paid
However, if Ms. Burgess' package arrives at Florida Lottery Headquarters with a date stamp prior to the original expiration date, our Claims Processing department will process and pay her claim. "According to the WFLA report, it’s been six weeks since the package arrived at the Tallahassee post office, and Burgess worries that she will never receive her winnings.
