A woman in the US had to give up her GH¢22m lottery prize to her former husband after she hid the money from him during their divorce.

However, her plan backfired when a letter from a company that paid lottery winners was mistakenly sent to Thomas's apartment two years after their separation.
Thomas was stunned to learn that his ex-wife had won GH¢22m in the California State Lottery.
He sued her for violating the state's asset disclosure laws and acting fraudulently and maliciously.
A Los Angeles family court judge agreed with Thomas and awarded him all of Denise's lottery money.
The judge said Denise could have kept half of the money if she had been honest initially, but she lost her right to it by concealing it.
