Does anyone know which Mega Millions states allow winners to claim as a blind trust?

 

If a state does not allow it.... how feasible of an idea would it be to consider changing your name prior to claiming a prize (so that the new name is the one published all over the internet).  There are many locations - that although they require a name change to be published in a local newspaper - the newspaper does not have an online edition and therefore wouldn't be published online.   It would be easy enough to rent a house/condo in such a place, and then quickly proceed with the name change in that county... assuming it could be accomplished before the winning ticket needs to be claimed.

The only problems that I can forsee with this idea is 1) making sure that that the name change took effect along with the time it would take to obtain an updated social security card and driver's license prior to the  6 months - 1 year claiming period   AND 2) not being able to sign the back of the ticket until you were sure the new name change took effect.  I'm not sure I'd be comfortable with that idea (not signing the back of the ticket right away).   But I'm not sure how comfortable I'd be claiming the prize with my true identity either.

    A trust is a legal entity recognized by all states. I do not believe there is such a thing as a "blind" trust.

    Way easier than trying to change your name.

      or  do it the evil way

      a trust within a trust

       

      did you know past winners, have 1 main trust claim it, it paid the taxes, then within that trust, was other trusts, one was for family bills, a other was health care trust, higher ed trust, etc

       

      am for real, you could hide, they can have the Name of the trustee, the lawyer of the frist trust, and have the names of the other trusts

      the lottery and everyone else, won't have the 2nd trust papers

      to hold the property for the benefit of one or more individuals or organizations or other legal beings

       

      its so easy to side step being public, you have to be a moron to miss it up

      if you really win, trust me, get a lawyer that does trusts and let him work hes Magic, and you be so will hidden , it take a army of evil lawyers to find you out lol

       

       

      in case i confused anyone, NO ONE BUT YOU and your lawyer will have the 2nd trust papers, with YOUR NAME on it, it can't go public

      lottery will get to see the frist trust, to make sure its legit trust ofc,

      but all they will have is the NAME of the 2nd trust's getting the payments

      , they wont have a clue what the 2nd trust is, cease they don't have a legal right to know person details of 2nd trust,

      hell i hide 3rd trust even

      if somone taken the 2nd trust to court, and somehow got past ever law to see the 2nd trust papers, all they have is the name of the 3RD trust

      thats a killer defence,

       

       

      you can in theory, have a trust within a trust within a trust, and keep on going on forever

      ,  trust lawyers can leave one hell of a long money trail  if they wanted to ROFL

      you can thank  world of the rich and big Corporations lawyers, they have mastered the art hiding where money comes form , and goes form

      long as the irs gets their full 35% cut form the first trust, you can tunnel that money to god  and your lawyer only knows what ends, to it reachs your last end trust, that you personal use

        So it's possible to claim as a trust in every state? I was under the impression that some states did not allow it.

        That's great if true... I'd MUCH rather claim as a trust.

        But if not possible... I was thinking the name change PRIOR to claiming would be the way to go.  Then after winning, it could be changed back... perhaps in a different jurisdiction. 

        I'm the only person with my name (at least in N.America) - and also being single I know that the first thing people do when learning your last name is google you.  That's a really bad combo. 

        wahhh wahhhhh  <--- *game show losing sound*
