American woman finds $3 million lottery ticket in spam folder.

An Amer­i­can woman dis­cov­ered she had won $3 mil­lion in the lot­tery after ran­dom­ly check­ing her spam fold­er for an email.

Lau­ra Spears, 55, had pur­chased a Mega Mil­lions tick­et online from the Nation­al Lot­tery after watch­ing the jack­pot soar into the hun­dreds of millions.

“A few days lat­er, I was look­ing for a miss­ing email from some­one, so I checked the spam fold­er in my email account,” she told lot­tery officials.

“That’s when I saw an email from the lot­tery say­ing I had won a prize.”

“I could­n’t believe what I was read­ing, so I logged into my lot­tery account to con­firm the mes­sage in the email,” she said, call­ing the win “shock­ing.”

She now plans to retire ear­ly and mon­i­tor her emails more close­ly in the future.

“I’ve def­i­nite­ly added the Michi­gan Lot­tery to my safe senders list in case I’m lucky enough to receive anoth­er huge prize email,” she said.

Mega Mil­lions lot­tery tick­ets are sold for two dol­lars in 45 states.

In 2018, a sin­gle win­ner in South Car­oli­na walked away with a record $1.6 bil­lion Mega Mil­lions win.
