Sleazy Move By The Massachusetts Lottery

Sleazy Move By The Massachusetts Lottery

I recently won a thousand dollar scratch ticket. I filled out the form at the Lottery office in Woburn. On the form, they asked for my email, so I gave it to them.

Within three hours of filling out that form I was innundated by spam emails all related to financial services. I received over ten spam emails that first day, and I contunie to get three or four a day.

Is the Mass Lottery really so hard up they need to sell their customers emails to spammming services? What an underhanded and shitty move.

If I had been a million dollar winner (or more) would they have shared my email address with strangers?

What the hell is wrong with these people?

I'm surprised that they would stop so low. That reflects negatively on their integrity.

A month after I gave the Mass Lottery my email I had over 700 emails in my spam folder, all related to financial services offers.
Thanks Mass Lottery, you pains in my ass!

I worked for commonwealth 15 years total service I never received my W-2 forms for 2014 2015 or 2016 I have tried every Avenue to get them to send me my forms. They continue to send them to the wrong address even though I have gone online to change address I have called central office I have change address through other branches of the Commonwealth. I called the IRS they told me they would send my employer a letter. Either way here we are 2017 and still no W2 for the past 3 years now if and when I ever do receive them I'm sure that I will be severely penalized. I usually get a tax return of around 8 to $10,000 a year so what does this mean I lose out period because I have lost out and I'm sure they'll find a way to blame it on me because that's what they do
