Please double check if you truly won .What could be one your worst nightmare? How about thinking you’ve won a lot of money,perhaps starting to spend it, then finding out you haven’t. Here is one very story that proves you shouldn’t count your chickens before they hatch.
In Southern China, a man threatened to kill himself after he realized he had spent all his savings celebrating after he believed he’d won a lottery prize of 5 million yuan which roughly equates to US$788,000.
The 28 year old hiling from Jinjiang in eastern Fujian was contacted by the police before he took any action to harm himself, it was reported in the local press at the time.
The man was a frequent lottery player who had spent a lot of time trying to work out how to beat the odds and make a huge jackpot win.
He thought he’s “calculated” a winning lottery number and bought a ticket, placing it in a drawer. When he went to check the winning numbers just over a week later, he misremembered his own numbers and thought he had won the jackpot of 5 million yuan.
Naturally overcome by the news, he treated a group of relatives and friends at a nightclub, and in the process spent all his savings of 5,000 yuan and ending up overdrawn by 3,000 yuan on his credit card.
Only after he woke up the next morning and compared the numbers, did he realize he had made a mistake. “I felt I’ve lost all face and my hope to continue living,” he was quoted as saying. After calling his girlfriend, he told her he was going to commit suicide. His girlfriend alerted the police who arrived at his home and talked him out of his plans.
