Callie Rogers won the jackpot at the tender age of 16 – and won almost two million euros. But she loses everything – and is now suing the lottery company.
Today, Callie Rogers is a mother of three, a nurse who earns a little more than 13,000 euros a year. There is nothing left of all the money that the young mother had won at the age of 16. At the time, she had skimmed a whopping two million euros in the lottery. But today the British woman regrets her run of luck and says that the win destroyed her life!
“Overnight I had to grow up. It haunted me years later,” recalls the 32-year-old in an interview with the British news portal. “I still suffer from panic attacks when I meet new people. It makes me crazy to think what the family of a new partner might think about even new friends or me. I’m still being exploited just because I am who I am,” the single mother said sadly.
So she believes that many “false friends” have exploited her naivety to cheat her out of thousands of euros or to obtain expensive gifts without Rogers ever getting a cent back. “People asked for money for new cars, and I helped them out. I was an easy victim. Today I know what they were like. I was exploited because of my age. I had many fake relationships,” she continues.
Too young to win the lottery? Callie Rogers can’t let go of her hard past
When she hit the jackpot at the age of 16, she lived with foster parents in Cockermouth and earned about four euros per hour as a supermarket cashier. Within a few weeks, she met the father of her two oldest children, Nicky Lawson, and moved into a 200,000 Euro bungalow with him. But only five years later the relationship broke up, which led to Rogers trying to take his own life. In the end, the children were taken away, and Rogers became a drug addict. So she spent almost 300,000 euros on cocaine alone.
