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. 

LOL Beat me to it.

    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.

    Same here.  I don't wish any ill will towards him.  I believe Jack Whittaker won about the same amount.  He had millions just in interest, too.  Now I hear he's broke.  I hope this guy figures it out before he's thrown his money all over the place and it's gone.

      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

      It is not greed and jealousy..it is based mostly upon fact.  Ask Jack Whittiker how many MILLIONS he lost.  After being sued by many, robbed, etc...  Many lottery players who won the "big" ones are now broke.  The only ones who are still going strong are the ones who had a real finacial advisor and followed the advice given.

      This guy should have moved immediately, changed his telephone number and claimed his winnings anonymously.  The leeches are going into a feeding frenzy over his money.

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

      You never know when you will get another hit.

        So true, a fool and his money are soon departed, he'll be broke in no time or worse, in a shallow grave.

                    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.

                    That's sad.  Most of us would say, oh MY friends aren't like that!  I know who my real friends are.

                    Well, until you have money I'm not sure you do know, and even trusted relatives turn out to be mooches who get ticked off when the ATM closes.

                          I agree 110%.  You can give someone a free fish every day or teach them how to fish.

                          I get the same routine over books. I have a tendency to give very detailed (free advice which most authors will not do) when someone asks me how to get a book deal  (assuming for the moment they can write) and will even go to the extent to give them a battle plan. But it always comes back to bite me in the behind because they want me to do even more and then do the real work for them too...research, pass on my contacts so they don't have to educate themselves on publishing, etc.  Most of these people only see a potential big $ sign only and don't want to do the hard work. I never hear any of them ever say they want to write because they have a good story to tell or want to share their expertise. At some point, I end up having to tell them to take a hike.

                            I agree I think people here are jumping to thinking he will lose his money for no reason. And I am pretty sure I read some place he did get a financial advisor. He does need to learn to say no to people for sure. But doing this for his neighbors for a month or 2 won't have him go broke.

                            Anybody volunteering to help has to be bisected and dissected and inspected for malfunction. Its sad how society is.

                            That money's gone fo ever

                              it is really sad considering it was life insurance money.  I can't imagine how people would act towards you when you just outright win millions. 

                               

                              One also has to wonder what would be gained by him making a formal announcement of paying people's rent.  He wants to be glorified as a saint.  This is not true altruism.
