Poor man.  Hopefully he will enjoy his lottery win despite his choice to be so public.

    It not my friends that I would worry about since I don't consider everyone I know a friend.  It those scam artists who regularly call and ask for me by my first name or nick name and then ask can they depend on me again this year as in the past to support their charity(usually them since they are professional fund raisers). 

    I hate to be rude to them if I really knew them at one time but I usually tell them to get lost.

    The only one am worried about is the IRS they don't have to steal my identity they have it allready and spending my lottery money b4 I even. Win. Lol

      I don't know what he was thinking .winning 21milion is not like driving thru a burger king drive thru. I think he forgot to first call life lock and inform them he just won the lottery and that he needs obama level protection with five million liability extra they will understand and get a new cell phone for life lock use only and then rent a motor home and start running with no direction just stay inland and don't go into mexico life lock won't save you there. Lol

      ROFL Lifelock, that ol'scam, everything Lifelock claims to do you can do your self or is already done and can be done quite easily plus their "guarantee" has so much BS written into it that it's basically worthless. My favorite part is all that advertising they did with Todd Davis giving out his Social Security number to "prove" how secure their system is to only have Lifelock completely fail in protecting it. LOL

      Wouldn't have done him any good, his "identity" was probably compromised before he won as a lot of them are, it just made those who had them jump.

      As for the winner, good for him, I hope he takes a active role though in overseeing how his money is handled and isn't as hands off with just his allowance, it's good that "the bank" gave him an apparent crash course but I'd hope he's educating himself and not letting other people do all the work.

      You can't predict random.

        ok you right somewhat that life lock is not perfect and you can do things yourself. But that is the point if i win do lottery the only thing i want to do my self is spending my money and enjoying every bit of it .l don't want to be driving a lamborghini with one hand and checking my credit on iphone with the other i will probably crash . so life lock will work for you and all you have to do is sleep like a baby for $10 oh ye . i will even pay them $500 per month to tripple my service security or VIP client while i dance my life away in puerto rico with thoes cute females on the beaches. lol

          His Education and gift for teaching can be utilized in many countries. Why stick to one area? He is young and can move to complete his desire to teach.

          His investment in this day and age should be self managed. No way is a Portfolio going to do ya good in this worldwind econ. If JP Morgan Chase can lose 2 BILLION! What makes a simple man think he cant lose a few million thru investing. the Best investment is thru educating or Civic causes for future generations. Its his choice though....

          This gent deserves to have close friends and closer family to shield him ...May he live long and prosper.
