Sirbrad,

I, and I believe most of the people on this site, would disagree with you.  There's nothing egotistical about it.  It has nothing to do with the winner as a person, so it's not ego or self-righteousness.  It's the money, and people's attempts to get some of it. 

Yes, of course, 99.9999% of people will go about their lives.  Normal people.  But just a few hundred, or even a few dozen grifters, can hound you and make your life miserable.  Some just begging, some pitching charity or business ideas.  Phone calls, mail, door-knockers, etc.  Since I don't want to leave my life and family and go into seclusion to avoid this (as some people seem to have no problem doing) I prefer to remain anonymous (and just slowly adjust living standards upwards as "new business opportunities" slowly pay-off).

I do, however, agree with you regarding the friends and family -- which is more to the point.  But if you don't keep it a secret from strangers, do you really think family and friends will forget about it in a couple of weeks?  You have to keep it secret from the media if you want to keep it secret from extended family.

Also, I'd prefer not to be known as a lottery winner to any businesses I may patronize.  I don't want them to feel entitled to jack-up prices and rip me off.

Who said I was going to tell strangers? I said most will not care or know if you are smart about it. Family and friends are the true enemies is this case. I would not need anything really fancy, just to be well off and secure and attract less attention. But thinking that the entire workd is going to know where I am at and conspire against me is just absurd and paranoia. I said there could be isolated incidents but if you are prepared to handle them as I am you will be fine. I won't be spending my time worrying about others coming after money, I will be enjoying my new life of prosperity. A few have already agreed with me, and I don't care who on this site disagrees, how many them have won jackpots in the millions and can speak from experience? ZERO. So their opinion is not relevant to me.

      The very, very long line was in California, people from Nevada crossed the border to

      purchase their tickets. I was wondering where that was.

       

      They think with enough tickets sales every combination was purchased so it's almost

      guaranteed their will be a winner tomorrow night!!

      After all this it would not be surprising if 145 winners won the jackpot. Talk a huge damper on the whole thing. One sole winner will be under A LOT of stress good and bad for a LONG time. But I am ready...

        Sirbrad: So all this chatter is pretty much a waste of time based on past results.


        So I guess you'll be leaving this thread and any other thread about MegaMillons?

        OK byeeeee!!!Big Smile

        Might as well, it will be dead soon and all the people who lost will go back to work Monday. Just factual reality. Keep dreaming though. Just be sure you have that parachute on for that fall from the clouds.

          Why do people keep saying that? Team of attorneys?

          I win all this money and all of a sudden I need a team?

          Where was my "team" when I was on unemploymentWhat?

          You did not exist then.

            Nikki,..the team aspect may consist of a trust atty, a tax atty, a corp/LLC atty...you probably don't get all-in-one with a single person....might be better to have a specialist in each section...besides, with this kind of cash ??  who really cares Green laugh

            I will also be hiring a LP inbox attorney to monitor all the spam. Or just set up an auto response of No Pity!"Sorry I am on a permanent vacation!"

              Some people are honest and back up their word...

              Yeah but most are not. I am just going by the "odds". That much money warps people's honest minds.

                I don't think either of you will pay up, you will both vanish from the forums never to be heard of again. Better get a written contract. Green laugh

                  At least I am not a "moron". LOL I just call it as it is, welcome to LP. I have been around a lot longer than you grasshopper. You will learn one day, slowly but surely. Anyone who thinks that someone would give that much money aware to a faceless forum member is the true "idiot".

                    It is all about records. But don't worry neither of you will be winning anyway to find out. So you both can still act like you are friends here in this imaginary, cyber world. "Idiot". I bet those cold facts don't sit well eh? Jester

                              I have plenty of money, and I do what I love for a living, and have for the last 25 years. You have no clue who I am. Sometimes brutal honesty hurts but I don't sugarcoat the truth. I am not the one posting in desperation of a jackpot like you and others are, and I am not overly-excited because I am not delusional. If I win it great, if not so what. I am simply trying to cushion the fall of those gullible enough to buy into the hype. "Odds" are the fall is going to be long. You know nothing about me or what I actually give in real life, you only have empty assumptions based on nothing. But I find it humorous that you seem to think you know people based on seeing a name and text, and are willing to send just anyone $250,000 who you never met. Sounds like good money management. I will have to make some fake accounts and pose as a female too, then I won't need to actually play the lottery. If the guy is desperate enough he won't care that I am married. LOL Next time just be careful who you attack and call names. Stick to your "job" of posting on forums all day, I am sure you will surpass my post count of 7 years next week sometime. LOL
