Same with a blind trust. A blind trust is used mostly by people that have assets that would be considered a conflict of interest in what they are now doing. They put their assets in a blind trust. It is called "blind" because they can not see the assets in the trust and they can not control them, so there is no conflict.
Yea I know the whole thing about not being able to see the assets and that you don't really have control over the money, but I had read that when you're creating it you could add a stipulation that would pay out whatever money to either yourself or other people and then dissolve the trust. That way you could still be completely anonymous and have control of your money.
Upon reading more about LLC's though, with the use of an attorney and a registered agent your name is still pretty much out of the spotlight. With investigation people can see who owns the LLC but the lottery won't release that info. It's not complete anonymity but it will work for me, only a handful of people would bother looking up to see that I own the LLC, and I believe I could use a P.O. Box so still people wouldn't know my house address.
What's better is I already live 3 blocks from the best law firm here so I wouldn't have to drive far to talk to them about getting everything done. Of course first I have to do the near impossible, haha.
