Erik Bragg: Professional skateboarder claims to be California Powerball winner ‘Picture’
- Updated: January 15, 2016
Erik Bragg from Chino Hills, CA just shared a photo on social media that he won the $1.5 Billion Powerball jackpot on Wednesday night.
The Internet appeared to be split on whether a bearded professional skateboarder from California, who claimed on Instagram that he won the Powerball, is the real deal.
“OMG I WON $1.5 BILLION!!!!! I’m posting this in case anyone tries to jack me this is proof! Look it up, I bought in chino hills where I grew up!” Erik Bragg posted on his account, with a photo of him holding up what appears to be a winning $1.6-billion ticket.
It would be one of three sold in the United States — in Florida, Tennessee and, yes, California.
Tens of thousands liked and commented on Bragg’s post.
But while many people jumped in to plead for cash, just as many dismissed his win as a hoax, finding evidence to suggest the photo was manipulated.
