A California Man Claims That Someone Named “Reggie” Stole His Winning $2.04 Billion Lottery Ticket

February 23, 2023 / Posted by:

Never, ever, ever, EVER trust a dude named Reggie. I can’t believe I’m even having to remind people of this; it’s rule number two #inthesestreets, right after no snitching! But according to TMZ, a man named Jose Rivera broke both of those cardinal rules and is suing a dude named Reggie, who he claims stole a lottery ticket he bought the day before a $2.04 billion drawing and refused to give it back. Jose claims he bought the winning ticket from Joe’s Service Center in Altadena, CA on November 7 and it was stolen by Reggie that same day. And now Jose has filed a lawsuit against Reggie and Edwin Castro, the man who the California Lottery announced was the rightful owner of the golden ticket.

I can understand how Jose might be in his feelings over losing out on a $2 billion return on his investment, but he’s got no one to blame but himself for trusting a dude named Reggie to do the right thing. According to TMZ:
