(Scroll down for video) A mother and daughter will face each other in court in a fight over lottery winnings in New York.

Barbara Quiles, 51, is asking a judge to freeze her daughter’s bank account over the $1 million lottery ticket disagreement.

Linza Ford, 21, claimed the winning million dollar scratch-off ticket from the New York State lottery office. She said that she allowed her mother to have access to her money, which was in her bank account.

Ford of Brooklyn, told her mother that she can use the money to pay off debt, care for her younger daughter, pay tuition and health care costs.

However, Ford said that her mother used the money for plastic surgery. She claims her mother had a face lift, tummy tuck, breast reduction and oral implants.

Ford decided to close the bank account so that the mother could no longer take her money.

That is when Quiles filed a lawsuit against her daughter. Quiles claims that she made an agreement with her daughter for her to claim the lottery winnings because she was ill at the time.

Ford’s attorney said that Quiles is on government assistance. If she defrauded the government by asking her daughter to cash the lottery winnings, she can be charged with fraud.

Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Martin Solomon granted Quiles’ motion for a temporary order, freezing the bank account into which the funds were deposited as well as a safe deposit box with $50,000 in valuables.

The mother has a prior conviction for welfare fraud. In 1989, she was sentenced to five years probation and ordered to pay $7,500 in restitution.
