What's with you lottery ticket buyers?

I don't buy them because I believe it's a scam, but you guys do buy them, win hundreds of thousands of dollars and don't get around to claiming it?

I mean, com'on already!

These three big tickets were sold in South Carolina and are still outstanding.
Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold Fort Mill (near Charlotte) for the Saturday, January 24, drawing. The winner did not match the red Powerball number, but matched the while balls reading 6, 20, 25, 37, and 42 -- the prize is worth $1 million as the purchaser had selected the "PowerPlay multiplier option."
$575,000 MegaMatch 6 Jackpot ticket was sold in North Charleston for the Friday, January 9, drawing with numbers 2, 11, 19, 28, 30, and 32. A person has claimed the ticket, but has asked to not be identified.
$800,000 MegaMatch 6 Jackpot ticket was sold in Anderson County for the Friday, January 2, drawing with numbers 4, 7, 17, 18, 25, and 28.
