Hello, I am happy to assist you today.

Unfortunately, the way that the lottery works is whoever brings in the ticket to collect the money will get the money. Even if you bought the ticket, you would have to prove that you bought that exact ticket and that she stole it in order to get the money back.

You can make a report with the police and try to get the money back. That's the first step. If she truly stole it and you can prove it then you have a chance.

I hope this helps,
