        YOU'RE EXACTLY RIGHT ..AGREE ........I KNOW i would visit the same ole stores .....the money will not change , all of me .

         I have plenty of family , friends , charities to help ......it would be a full time job ....I bet the lawyer told her not to spend

        alot of money at first .....she has many TRUST FUNDS , no doubt ...and it takes months to get everything in order .

        One of the Lottery winner who doesn't live to far , he won over $100 million and several months later he's still getting

        his finances taken care of ....

    Nothing!! I'd still shop there if I won.

    Sorry everybody's Wal-Mart is filthy, the one in my area is

    a clean and neat supercenter with fresh produce and staff that

    very helpful.

            The walmart in my area , it's clean , right now they're adding on to it , for a Super Walmart and across the street ,

             they're building a new Sam's Club .  There's to much competition with these stores, for lower prices ...

      100s of calls to xwife from over decade ago

      media following the winners around , taking account of where they  shop, and eat

      and ofc 1000s of calls and requests to the winners, some threating ofc.

       

      who could of NOT guested this would happen to largest single lottery winner in history Skeptical

      its not like they could of not gone publicNo No

      i know for a fact florida lottery allows corporations to claim, as corporations have claimed in past!

       

      but these folks wanted to listin to 99% who said u have to be public,so they get  what they deserve. and not thinking outside the box

      all u have to do is have the corporation  claim it in that state, ,  then be owned by a trust, trust is easyest option/key here to avoid gift tax etc, and then have other trust within a trust,

      have some fake middle man, like money managers/lawyers  in first trust, pass them off to lottery as real winners,and be anonymously in a none anonymously lottery state Green laugh

      and lottery would never know who real winners are!

       

      i flat out i hope with 100s of millions these folks have in cash

      they will hire/ pay for full time off duty cops  body guards or whatever

      i know jack got that in to so much issues atfer hes big 300m win, he  hired off duty cops

      ofc body guards don't protect u form self harm, what hes life was full of................

      the fact is , media/beggers/whoever a ahole that likes wasteing lottery winners time

      is now trying to  get into there personal business

       

      i would at lest have body guards around me first few months, to majority stop trying  if i somehow was found out.

      but for these poor folks, just like seen of TLC show big winners, they always have people calling/writing for help for years to come. etc,

      am just glad they didn't say we plan to help people out, or even more beggers would of came out of woods to try.

      never promise a penny to anyone, always say no,and if someone asks for money, they become dead 2 u, u never want 2 talk 2 them again "these who not part nuclear family ofc , as family always gets to asked without being disowned for it rofl."

      and slowly u start to only have good people around u.

      the fact she a greatgrand mom is something,  i even have  a grantgrand mom, they do tend 2 be in the 80s/90 range

      No bees, no honey.

        Not just a lottery winner but anybody.

        They send all of that money to China which helps sustain their brutal totalitarian government, forced labor and slave wages.

        Yea, they say they'll start carrying more U.S. made, but hav'nt done much more than that,

        maybe just an ad campaign ?

            Yeah, it's all talk.

            I think he'd have done it if he saw China was becoming a belligerent Super Power with our money.

              I Agree!  Yes, his original idea was excellant, but like so many others, was corrupted over time. Disapprove

                Old habits are hard to break, and when you're 84, I'd suspect they would be even harder. 

                This woman has probably lived a simple life for so long that she probably doesn't know any other way.

                She probably feels comfortable in familiar surroundings. I can't speak for her, but I have relatives in their 80s and I could see them doing the same thing.  Heck, I'd probably still shop at these stores too, I'd just buy more stuff, lol.

                      I despise Walmart.  Seems like there were 200 crying kids in the store the 2 times I stepped foot in there and everyone was rude and had no manners.

                        I agree Cin.

                        There is no need for this woman to go to Tiffany's or Rodeo Drive to buy toilet paper, deodorant, soap and soup. You get those things at the grocery store or Walmart, Target, Kmart, Sam's Club, Costco etc.....

                        I think some people are being unrealistic.

                        I work at a tennis club and some customers there are millionaires and they go to the supermarket just like the rest of us.

                        Go figure!!

                        Even Arnold Swarzenegger and Britney Spears shop at Walmart. It only makes sense and nothing to be ashamed of.

                              I agree with you.  I want her to be safe too and enjoy her money.
