Mullins won the lottery back in 1993 and opted for yearly payouts instead of a lump sum. As a result, she quickly found herself in debt and used her future payouts as collateral for a $200,000 loan.

The loan company filed suit and won judgment for a $154k settlement but they haven't collected anything because Mullins reportedly has no assets.
