Are clerks honest with your lotto tickets?

We wondered whether the clerk in our Lottery story was going to be honest when we asked her to check our scratch lottery ticket.

As we watched, an undercover lottery employee presented her with a mock ticket printed by the Colorado

Lottery. The ticket is printed to look and act like a real ticket when scanned by a lottery machine.

One of the clerks we feature in our story (that airs Saturday on 9NEWS after the Broncos game) was friendly and greeted us with a smile.

She also took our “winning” lottery ticket and tried to claim it the next day as her own. It would have been worth hundreds of dollars had it been real.

She ended up charged with a crime.

Here’s the video. Does she look suspicious?
