A fake winning Powerball ticket has been circulating on Facebook since Thursday.

Nolan Daniels, a member of Facebook, posted a photo depicting the winning numbers on a Powerball ticket. He posted the following statement with the photo:

Looks like I won't be going to work EVER!!!! Share this photo and I will give a random person 1 million dollars!

However, a little research shows the ticket must be fake because the first five numbers are not in numerical order. Powerball's FAQ page reads, " The tickets print the white ball numbers (the first five numbers) in numerical order."

This clearly shows the ticket to be a "big fat phony"--- to quote Fox's Family Guy. If it had been real, Mr. Nolan would be entitled to a share of about $588 million.

So please do all your friends a favor and share this story to let the real truth be known.
