Man wins lottery, leaves wife. That’s the short version of what happened to a South Florida woman whose husband won the lottery and then left her was set to be evicted from her home Tuesday evening.

But Local 10’s camera was rolling when Donna Campbell received an early Christmas present.
Campbell was given until Tuesday to pack up and leave the Miramar home she once shared with her husband, Arnim Ramdass.

«I have asked myself over and over what I did to deserve this, to deserve this ending,» Campbell said.
Ramdass and several other airline mechanics won $19 million in a June 2007 lottery jackpot. Instead of sharing the wealth, Campbell said her husband did not tell her about his win and eventually left her.

A previous lawsuit Campbell filed was dropped. Ramdass stopped paying the mortgage, and their home went into foreclosure.
While they are still legally married, Campbell said Ramdass has vanished.

«I have no idea where he is,» Campbell said.
In fact, the only reminder of the man with whom she once shared this home were wedding pictures on the dining room table. As far as the rest of her belongings, she was prepared to have to let them go. That’s when a man wins lottery, leaves wife.

“I could part with anything in the house. It doesn’t matter. But the Christmas stuff means a whole lot to me,” she told Local 10’s Jen Herrera.

Campbell spent Tuesday packing up pictures and clothing. She said she would leave behind furniture and other large items, as she had no place to go and can’t afford to store them.

But when the folks at AA Varco moving company saw Campbell’s story on Local 10, they offered to move her belongings and store them at their facility for free.

“That would be wonderful. Thank you very much. You made my Christmas,” Campbell told the man on the other end of the phone when she heard the news.

Campbell wants to divorce Ramdass, file suit for her half of the money and serve him with papers, but her husband is nowhere to be found.

«I intend to find him. I will keep trying until I get him,» Campbell said.

In the meantime, she plans on moving in with her sister while her attorney continues to look for her husband to serve him divorce papers. All she can sadly say is: «Man wins lottery, leaves wife».
