Money can certainly cause more problems than it solves as one man sure knows. 

A 58-year-old Korean man became an overnight millionaire after striking the jackpot. The unnamed man, a divorcee construction worker, allegedly won $4 million from the national lottery. However, it appears he had little time to celebrate as family soon came knocking on and breaking down his door.

According to Rocketnews24, the man’s mother and daughter claimed they were entitled to a portion of his winnings. When the mother heard news of her son’s good fortune, she believed she deserved a new apartment and an allowance for her hard work. After all, as a grandma, she served as a caregiver and “looked after [his] kids when they were young.”

Speaking of kids, his daughter also demanded a share of the winnings. She claimed that it was the least he can do for her taking care of his elderly mother.

Faced with a difficult dilemma, the man decided to pick up and move to a different city without telling his family. His escape plan failed as family members hunted him down at his new address. His mother and daughter reportedly persuaded a locksmith to drill through his door so they could enter into his home.
