A big difference between the two

Although Yanira Alvarez should be very happy and ready to enjoy her hard earned money, Edwin Castro has already bought some properties and travel packages, but she has a strong concern that prevents her from fully utilizing what she has earned. And, as we remember, the Latin prize is in a legal battle in the courts, claiming that, in fact, he bought the ticket.

The man involved, identified as Jose Rivera, filed a legal complaint against Edwin Castro on February 22 for alleged ticket theft. In his case he claims to have bought the ticket, but Urachi F. Romero, his then landlord, stole the ticket from him and never returned it to him despite his insistence.
