I Agree! It all sounds crazy, but anyone in his position might do the same thing.

We came into a fairly significant amount of money last year.  We tried to help a friend out by selling him a vehicle on payments.  He made 1 payment in 3 months.  My husband is a musician and he would feed the guys in his band and pay for the gas and pick them up when they needed rides.  The came to expect it and I honestly feel it damaged his relationship with them.  He does not speak to the first friend at all now, even though it was the friend's fault we had to ask him to bring the vehicle back.  You see, you really can't help people first hand.  If he truly wants to help he should form a non profit and have someone else run it.  Unfortunately, life just doesn't allow you to help your friends directly.

    Yeah ONLY after they had moved, changed their phone numbers, and probably changed their names.  This guy is a sucker and the leeches will bleed him dry in about 5 years.  The news report that I saw said he had at least 1 relative (unknown) coming out of the wood work every day.

    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

    You never know when you will get another hit.

        This may be another Jack Whitaker, only worse.

        It's sad.   But that's the nature of the lottery.   You need not have the life experience or training to be rich when suddenly you are, and that can be tragic.  I hope he does better than Whitaker, of course, but I suspect he won't.

        Whitaker of course had less of an excuse.   He was already relatively rich when he won the big one.

          Well I do commend him for doing this but unless it is set up properly, it can cause him a lot of problems.  What if people don't pay their rent for two months and say I assume he was doing it as promised....or who is on the rent payment list and who is not?

            and what if you were one block over, would you feel cheated because he didn't pay your rent? I see him making enemies over this.

              I Agree! His "block" could stretch for miles.

                The greed and jelousy in all of you is coming out in this thread. Quezada will never go broke, he is earning millions in interest just for having the money in the bank. Helping out the neighborhood will not even take 2% of his winnings. You all are praying on his downfall just to say (I TOLD YOU SO) and that will never happen with the amount of money he has. No No

                    Will be interesting to see if anyone takes him to court claiming he was in the block but rent was not paid.  He needs to be careful what he says that will be put into print.

                        I thought he had a "financial advisor"......all of them are not created equal.  If he does and he is making stupid statements like this, he needs to fire that financial advisor and get a REAL ONE.  Depending on the amount of the rent, he could be making his "neighbors" have a huge IRS headache for next year.

                            Oh please.  I think you are missing the big picture in terms of making open ended promises and potential litigation, etc. I don't see how any of this relates to jealousy or greed. Quite the contrary, we are hoping he excercises more caution.

                              "He said he's going to pay the rent for everybody here ..."

                              I think President Lyndon Johnson tried this. Food, too.
                              Anyone recall how it turned out? Wink

                              Will be interesting if the IRS decides to count the rent payment as taxable income and then hit everyone up for it. LOL

                              Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.
