    'I know you won.' 'You don't have to lie.' 'We know where you live.'

    Unbelievable.

    I would respond to that phone call by inviting the callers over and introducing them to my good friend Sam Colt and my buddies, Smith and Wesson.

      People calling your cell phone usually either already know you or know someone close to you.

      What she has found out is how many jerks are in/near her inner circle.

      Yeah, could be she was just trying to create her own 15 minutes of fame and it backfired or she's making the whole thing up.

            This is exactly why lotteries should allow winners to remain anonymous!

            We all get a lot out of lotteries!

              I Agree!

              On the other hand, I can also see lotteries wanting and needing to make the winners public. If everyone was anonymous, then the public might suspect the Lotteries were faking winners and scamming the public. So I can see the need to make winners public.

              However, there has to be a happy medium for those who request anonymity.

              Give someone a fish and feed them for a day. Teach them to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

                  $2 Million? The hooplah will die down and she'll be forgotten. If it's bothering her that much she can change

                  her phone numbers. And the death threats? Come on now...it's not $200 Million. Yeah, yeah people have

                  been killed for less but this story just seems too sensational for the non-winner.

                  Over a decade ago, a man killed another man over the last hotdog on the grill.

                  People will kill over $25, much less $200,000.
