    Just goes to show you...be carefull who you befriend.    People that try to become your "best" friend after you win a lottery jackpot are looking out for THEIR best intrests NOT yours!   Be cautious of the 'New Friends" that will try and come into your life.   Surround yourself with people you KNOW and TRUST!   Just like anything else having a plan in case you win the lottery is a good idea.    I personally would not tell anyone but close family and maybe one friend.  I also would absolutely NOT go publiic unless I absolutely had to.    I might let my good fortune slip to LP after some time had past....

      I cannot believe this story is hardly even being covered in the national media.  Instead, they're covering the most ridiculous subjects imaginable.  This story should be all over the news.  If Dorice "DeeDee" Moore is involved, I think she should be charged with murder 1.  If found guilty, I think she should be given the death penalty.Smash

        I still would like to win a large jackpot. I already know who my friends are, and I have never been popular ... so I would be very aware of people who would normally ignore me !!!!! Cool

         

        I have had many years to think of what I would do if I did win, and I know that security would be the first priority ! It is not rocket science ! Stooges

         

        It makes me sad that so many people think that they have the "right" to take from others.

        As little that I have right now, I actually had someone that I know tell me that he had the "right" to come to my house and take what he needed !!!!! Hit With Stick

          We all wish that we could win the "BIG ONE", but like Mr. Shakespeare had told his brother "I often wished that I had never bought the winning ticket".  My wife often thinks that it would be good to have "THAT WINNING TICKET", but after listening to so many winners it really changes your life, and mostly bad, because a lot of times family and friends are never satisfied with the amount you give them and I know with my wife wouldn't want to share with anyone, LOL. You would have a lot of dilemmas that you will have to go through especially dealing with people at work who will be coming at you for handouts.  I know for me that it would be hard and some people would disagree, and say, I would like that opportunity, but take the time to listen to some of the horror storys like this one, he didn't have to die, but somebody got greedy and wanted to use the fact that he wasn't literate as a way to separate Mr. Shakespeare from his money.  Tell me what you think about that?

          IMO Shakespeare did everything wrong during and after collecting his winnings:

          1. He allowed himself to be photographed publicly.  Instead, he should have gone to a lawyer and learn if he could use a blind trust.  It is always a huge mistake to allow yourself to be identified as a lotto winner.  All it does is cost you money, time, and energy to keep people away.  The media and the lottery officials have everything to gain by identifying you and you have everything to lose.
          2. He did not move and stay away from his old social circles.  He hung out in his old neighborhood.
          3. From what I read, I don't think he sought legal or financial advice.

          One issue which was not Shakespeare's fault was that a police officer sold  Moore his private information such as license plate # and probably his address.  However, this is related to #1 above.  If Moore didn't know Shakespeare's name, she could not have purchased his private info.  Once an alleged con-artist knows your name, they can obtain any further info they need by buying it.

          Shakespeare was a simple day laborer.  He didn't understand or know how to deal with a large lotto win.  This is why he failed.  His story, while famous, is not the rule.  It is more the exception.  Most lotto winners are not murdered.  Most lotto winners live happy, (more) productive lives.

              Why would anyone take the blame for a murder in exchange for $50,000? You cant spend it if you are in prison,Duhh! Criminals are stupid!

                  If her behind would have been in any other state, she would have already been charged with first degree murder!  I am appalled but not surprised that the state of Florida has only arrested her for after the fact accessory. In Florida, they still hold "white women" in high regard. How many lies and  how many palms must she grease with his money so she can get her behind out of this perdicament she created by being one greedy, low lifed b^&ch!!!

                      In my opinion, the majority of people who win the lottery, and say that they wish they never bought the winning ticket, are the same ones who think that they can go back to their old neighborhood or behave in a manner in which they believe money will buy them out.

                       

                      For instance, after Shakespeare won the lottery, and purchased his house, he still went back to the old hang out spot.  Now as everyone knows, that is not always a wise choice, especially if the old hang out is located in a deprived area.  He wanted to prove to his friends and family members that he is still the same person, in which I believe he was, but he also failed to realize "Money changes the people around you".  He also stated that he wanted to help the poor, in which that did not come into fruition. Setting up a charitable account or donating to not-for-profit organizations is a start, but giving $1 million dollars to a man named "Big Man", is where he went about it the wrong way.  Once you give to someone, and everyone else around you knows this, that is where the trouble begins.

                      As far as dealing with people at work, depending on your line of work, you would either have to change jobs or retire, and do something that you always dreamed of.  Brad Duke is a lottery winner, that took time-off from work to get away from the hagglers and returned to his old job once the attention calmed down.  Co-workers who ask for hand-outs, are people with no morals, and that is who you should distance yourself from.  Remember, there is no such things are true friends in the workplace.  Some of them will stab you in the back to get a promotion.

                      "If you don't make a plan to win the lottery, then you already made a plan to fail".  It's true, even though we hate to admit it. Lottery winners need to get themselves a financial team, try to find ways to stay grounded, stop giving hand-outs that will need benefit the recipient (medical/educational), and limit drinking and do not use drugs (tons of previous lottery winners made this bad move).  If you feel that you have to prove to your friends that you are the same person, then you need new friends.  A true friend will not let money get in-between a friendship, and usually, it does not take a lottery win to know this.

                      Well said Jazi, Well said.

                        so that is the moral of winning lotto. it doesnt change you, it changes everyone around you.

                        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

                        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

                          I also want to know how could she be charged as an accessory after the fact if they don't have the person who killed him!!! She could very well be the one who killed him...I guess we have to wait for all of the information to come out..if it ever does..
