If you don't often check your spam folder, you might want to after hearing this. A Michigan woman just happened to be in her spam folder looking for a missing email from a friend when she noticed an email from the Michigan Lottery informing her that she had won $3 million in the December 31st Mega Millions drawing. 55-year-old Laura Spears says she bought the ticket online and assumed she didn't win because she hadn't heard anything. She continued living her life while her $3 million sat in an email she may have never known about. She plans to use her winnings to retire early.
