Nolan Daniels Powerball Hoax: Man Posts Fake Lottery Ticket To Facebook
A Facebook user named Nolan Daniels posted a photo of himself holding what appears to be a winning Powerball ticket from Wednesday's record $588 million lottery drawing to his feed, according to the Savannah Morning News. The post is reportedly a hoax.

The public photo, which was shared at about 10 p.m. Thursday evening and had received more than 450,000 shares by Friday afternoon, included the statement:


"Looks like I won't be going to work EVER!!!! Share this photo and I will give a random person 1 million dollars! "

Citing the Powerball website, Gawker points out that the numbers on the ticket were "not in numerical order... [as] a real ticket would be" and called the image "poorly photoshopped."

But the post was enough to fool a lot of people, even after a winner in Missouri came forward, and video footage of the alleged second winner surfaced.

Powerball has yet to confirm a second winner of the historic jackpot. The remaining winning ticket was bought in Arizona.
