Lakesha Mewborn and Deborah E. Davis say an internet sweepstakes parlor on S. Saunders Street in Raleigh refused to pay them the five- and six-figure prizes they claim they won on Christmas Eve 2013. The parlor says their computer system got hacked and paid Mewborn and Davis a fair, though less than the women say they are owed, amount.
