Always check the spam folder - that's the lesson learned by a Michigan woman who nearly missed out on a $3 million lottery prize. 55-year-old Laura Spears bought a Mega Millions ticket back on Dec. 31st, but had no idea she'd won - until she was searching through her email spam folder and found a notification from the Michigan Lottery.

Spears plans to use the money to retire early and help out her family - and plans to check her spam folder even more frequently from now on, just in case.

Do you ever look through your spam folder? Do you trust your email filters?
