A Michigan woman checks her email spam folder and accidentally stumbles on a message from state Lottery officials announcing that she’d won $3 million. Laura Spears had bought a Mega Millions ticket online, according to an account of how she won that was posted by the Michigan Lottery. Several days after her purchase, she was searching for an unrelated item in her junk mail when she came upon the message.
It is all still so shocking for her that she won $3 Million. Spears said she plans to share her newfound wealth with family members and is now planning to retire early. She also added that she will definitely add the Michigan Lottery to my safe senders list just in case she gets lucky enough to receive another email about a huge prize.
