If she isn't going to enjoy the money, she might as well have played Bingo. It's her money, and she is and can do with it what she wishes of course, it it just seems odd to have won that kind of money yet not enjoy it. Why did she play the game in the first place? It almost seems like an enormous waste.

    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

    Yes, because we're going to take legal and tax advice from a guy with no legal training, no accounting training, no training in anything at all, but who sent me a private message telling me we are to listen to him because he knows all about the law and we shouldn't allow these people to "Peach our freedoms" and who thinks he can establish a business partnership in which the fake business partner claims the money and then transfers it to you and that will bypass the gift tax laws and you get to keep your anonymity. 

    Right, because the IRS is going to believe you have a real business in which all the business does is have one person transfer money to another person. That'll work. But rest easy, when it doesn't we can go to court and argue that they are "peaching our rights". Joshua Cloak told me to do it on LP and it must be true because he has no training, but he said it cannot fail.

It almost seems like an enormous waste.

      You know what? I was thinking the same exact thing. It bugs me when people play a game with a massive payout and then continue doing the exact same things I always do. Isn't the point of winning the lottery to be able to do things you couldn't normally do?

      But then it dawned on me that we have no idea what she's ordering from on online stores and luxury catalogs while she's holed up in her luxury hotel. Let's face it, it's not like she checked herself into a Days Inn or Extended Stay. Ex-daughter-in-law says luxury hotel. That's a tip off that perhaps she's not that averse to spending as we may believe.

      It also dawned on me that no matter how much I win, I'd still be seen at McD's buying their strawberry banana smoothie (I am utterly addicted) or at Outback Steakhouse getting their rack of lamb dinner with garlic mash pototes (also additcted). If you have a place that makes something you love, no matter how cheap it is, why give that up?

        I hear ya Teddy. You're right. Also, maybe she isn't spending the money like we would, because the media attention is on her. The old saying goes, when people know you have money or things, they want them also. She could be waiting for the media attention to move away from her so that she can get spending in peace (like that's going to happen,lol). As for still going to McDonalds, hell I can't give up my wild berry smoothie either. Even if I had won that money, I wouldn't be caught dead eating in some fancy, stuffy resturant where they feed portions as small as what a bird can eat.lol  I'd probably still be eating a Golden Corral and my favorite Chinese Buffet places. The only difference is that I would be riding up in my fully decked out 2014 Range Rover.Cool

          People have no idea how big Walmart really is. I was stunned to find out their revenues are about 10 times that of Amazon.  Shocking. But they also nickel and dime their vendors but you make it up in sheer volume.

            They really do have the most amazing smoothies. Until they stop making them I'll never stop buying them no matter how rich I get.

            I'm not giving up Outback or Cheesecake Factory no matter how much is in my bank account. But I still don't mind dropping a pretty penny at the fancy restaurants whenever I can. It's one of the things I'd want to do more of. I'd go to NY, see a few Broadway shows and eat at every top notch restaurant I can. I have got to get to Marcus Samuelsson's place in Harlem. I've watched that guy on every cooking show and I am dying to taste his food. That and Tom Coliccio's steakhouse. The foodie in me demands if I ever have money, I'll be making that trip. They can roll me back home I'll be so fat. 

            As for the car, I had wondered about that. I figured one of them would have bought a new car by now. Or rented one or taken a cab, if for no other reason to maybe avoid the media. But chances are they would have been followed no matter what they arrived in or maybe he isn't planning on driving any new vehicle until their new place is ready so that they don't get followed there. 

            I watched a documentary called the Queen of Versailles and it looked really pretentious for that woman to pull up to McDonald's in her stretch limo. So idk, maybe, whatever the reason, it was better for them to be tooling around in the same old car. Shopping at Walmart while driving a $100k automobile would have had the tongues wagging more than they are already.

              No one can deny the might of Walmart, how they affect the economy is truly mindblowing. There's a reason their business model is studied in MBA programs.

              But it's really interesting that their sales have plateaued for the past many months, and their excuses are ridiculous considering that their competitors, like Costco and Amazon sales have jumped.

              They're okay only breaking even or even taking a loss on key item things like gas, prescription meds, even groceries just to get you in the stores and shopping, but turn a profit almost entirely from memberships. Ditto with Amazon and their Prime memberships

              I can see why Walmart sales have slumped, because now you have stores selling MUCH better quality items with greater variety for less or the same as Walmart. It'll be interesting to see what will happen in the next few years, if Walmart can't dig themselves out of this slump and compete in this new playing field.

              It'd be a shame to end up like Blockbuster. First a trailblazer then a dinosaur.

                    It takes time to adjust when you become a millionaire . If she was spending large or small ,

                    no matter what , everyone will complain .   That's why they say , take one day at a time .

                    This way she could make that money last forever .  Not 3 - 7 years later ...

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                     I know if I won , I will not change suddenly again it all takes time and I'm not going to tell

                      family all my moment moves .  Several PB and MM won in my area , and you don't hear

                      much about them and they won mulit million $$$$$$$$$$$ . One winner won last Nov 2012

                       I don't hear anything about him and he won over $100 million , he did give a new conference .

                       You've huge responsiblity and make it last ........

                          There's a new Super Walmart and Sam's Club being built across the street from each other .

                           It's going to hurt the other grocery stores .....In total (soon ) there will be 7 stores in

                          competition with each other the 5 stores are doing this right now .

                            The prices are reasonable and affordable .  Winner the lottery again will not change me to much.

                           I will help family , friends and local organizations .......that will be plenty ......

                            As far as a vehicle and moving , yes that will be done in due time . I won't tell anyone i'll do like

                          Come on, Stack. Can anyone really consider Days Inn a luxury hotel? Maybe Scott's roommate was taking the leftovers for the dog. Or maybe she just really liked that meal and wanted to make sure she had some for later. 

                          I'd really hate to know anyone is going through life thinking Days Inn is a luxury hotel. That would be too cruel.

                          I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                          The odds are about the same.

                            To some people any place where someone else cleans the room and change the sheets is luxurious, at least it is to me.

                              I usually take home left-overs for my dog too. The big difference is, I don't have $200 million in my bank account. Nothing wrong with shopping at Wal Mart or driving a used Ford Escort, but they just won largest cash jackpot in history. What's the point of playing if you have no intentions of spending the winnings?
