    Ugh, noise-gate, I hope you meant to type "he's" or "he is;" since "his" makes no sense in your last sentence.

    Shocked

    After completing and delivering the NJ Lottery Headquarter's official Claim Form, I hope that Pedro quickly compares on-line, then purchases a 30-year, $2M term life, A+++ company insurance policy on himself (and same amount for his wife). 

    However, Pedro did chose to speak to the interviewing press in Spanish, so perhaps he isn't a legal U.S.A. Citizen.  Therefore, this couple would have to obtain both term life insurance policies from whatever country(ies) he and/or his wife are a legal citizen in.

    Haveaball-l did not see the interview and had no reason too, but l was speaking of the overall win and him being in shock at having the only winning ticket and the  amount in question.
    Your post is somewhat offensive to Spanish speaking people in my opinion though l myself am not Latino. Are you seriously suggesting that just because Pedro addressed the press in his Mother tongue,  he is' nt a legal citizen?  Boy you have balls. The dude OWNS  a deli for a number of years in NJ and besides non citizens can play the lottery & win as well.Ever heard of the term " legal resident"?-  Your mental attitude needs adjusting. .imho.

      Probably doesn't know any better.  he saw he won the thing ran down to cash it in.  He has no idea what a big target is on his back now.  When I saw his picture in the paper and he was talking to the press and all his neighbors knew he won I thought to myself that is going to be a huge mistake.  I'm praying for him and his family.

      All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

          let me understand this right

          state govt, in final stages of making a law allowing anonymous winners....

          all this guy had to do is wait for there slow beeping govt to make it law via gov signing it........

           

          then this guy, goes to 1 store in state, , where all media at, waiting like a pack of wild predators.............

          , look at me world, o  wow i just found out i won, hello there media, am the winner, yes Sir, this here is winning ticket.............

          we see what happens,

          but  if this guy could not sit back,wait to claim,and not tell a soul.  no sir, not this guy.

          i fear he has no idea what hes getting into

          how badly everyone will treat him as  ATM

           

          this has  all ready  happened  before,  "spends next 10 mins looking up youtube videos"

          i found it! 

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvnJ9Tiztcc

           

          meet our past study, he just walked right up to media and showed it off. right at the darn store!

          the great thing  thro,  never seen any bad updates about him

          so am guesting u can Hide atfer being a show off to media.....

           

          ether way, best of luck for this winner

          hope he knows how to Hide........  at lest form the predators

          Obviously he has already made some big mistakes, hopefully he is a strong willed person and can tell all the people who are going to come out of the woodworks to got take a walk.

          All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

            I am glad that Arizona where I currently hail from is considering passing the anonymous bill that allows a lotto jackpot winner and other big winners  to remain anonymous.

            Sad part is NJ legislators passed a bill that would let you stay anonymous for a year, they are just waiting for Christie to sign it.  A little patience and he could have avoided having his picture plastered all over the paper along with his name and where he lives.

            All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

              That neighborhood where he bought the ticket looks fairly ghetto... my experience while living in DC, people in these urban areas ain't very friendly and if they are, it is only because they want something from you.

              Soon after I got stationed in DC, I remember getting a lot of blank stares and frowns from people if I gave them a friendly hello as I passed 'em by while walking home from post. After a while, I just gave up, people there seemed to prefer to keep to themselves.

              I hope Pedro has heard of Jack Whittaker's failure and chooses not to go down a similar path. May God bless and protect him and his family.

              Don't believe Jack Whitaker ever went broke.

              He acted the clown and ended up in headlines---ripped off in strip-club parking lots and such, caught drunk driving, and his daughter unfortunately died, I think (not that that had anything to do with his winning the lottery).

              Whitaker was actually a successful business owner before he won big and gave alot to his community after he won.

              Like I said earlier, this recent winner's windfall is so large I literally believe you'd have to be the dumbest individual on planet Earth to eat through it all in a lifetime or even get close

              Agreed that he needs to move from his current digs---like yesterday---get a couple professionals to get him set up tax and investment-wise, and he should go back to school. Take a few classes on personal finance and such at a local community college so he has a basic understanding of taking care of his money. Above all, don't pretend you're suddenly an entrepreneur, opening businesses, bars, nightclubs, etc. where employees and other leeches will suck you dry.

              And again, I hope this guy is a success story who has the final laugh on all the doubters.

                He might not blow through the money but he could get killed for his money like that dude down in Florida.

                  Just read about him on the news here in the UK, nice guy but he needs to go learn English and maybe take a class or two in how to keep his money in check. Hopefully he doesn't give in to the leeches who will suck him dry.

                    Everyone here agrees on one thing---he needs to get the hell outta Dodge. Hopefully he's already done that or is in the process of.
