Jose Antonio Cua-Toc
In 2010, illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Cua-Toc won $750,000. However, he was afraid to cash the ticket because he didn’t have a visa, so he asked his boss to do so, who was happy to oblige. Well, the boss cashed the ticket but later feigned ignorance. A lawsuit followed, which Cua-Toc won, but it proved costly and he was not left with much of the winnings. He was then given a choice since he was an illegal immigrant: leave voluntarily, or be deported.
