“I could have left, but instead I bought a couple more,” recalled Mevelyn, still amazed that he was so close to not have won the prize. Cullins who is an engineer at CB Richard Ellis Management Company scratched the tickets in the store, and immediately revealed the $100,000 win. He was overjoyed and ecstatic and called friends and family immediately, although no one believed him at first. His wife was skeptic and told him that she would have to see the check first. “She even thought the ticket was fake,” Mevelyn said.
