    Nassau County police say a 34-year-old man bought the ticket Thursday.
     
    Police say the man scratched off his card and saw that he was a winner. He handed it to 26-year-old Karim Jaghab to get his winnings.
     
    Police say the ticket was worth $1 million but Jaghab gave the man $1,000 in cash and kept the ticket.
     
    The customer went back Friday. Police say Jaghab and his 57-year-old father Nabil Jaghab tried to give him $10,000.
     
    The Jaghabs were arraigned Saturday on grand larceny charges. According to Newsday, their attorney said it was a simple mistake on a payout on a lottery machine.
