Jillybear,

Did not know the mechanics of a trust ,in relationship to setting it up first, then claiming the prize  for the trust after, under a trust name.

Always appreciate good advice and need reminders often, about being a little wise about big jackpot winnings.

Thanks.

      She clearly has terrible luck. What are the odds that the church she goes to would be one that has a ridiculous idea or two about what people should or shouldn't do?

        She was unsure how to tell her pastor she'd had a momentary weakness & gave into it?  I'm not all that religious, but if she feels she can't tell her pastor for fear of his condemnation & scorn, then she's going to the wrong church.  And, she needs to adjust her thinking on this: she's been handed something that can help her church, the congregation, the community she lives in & those in need.  Despite how it came about, this is a gift; use it to help others if it'll make her feel better...

        I agree with this 100%. In fact, I find that pastors, or people in general, who preach the most and the loudest against doing sinful or evil things are the ones doing those very things or worse.

                This woman is snowballing every one. Make no mistake about it, she wants that money and will be keeping it. 

                This wasn't her first "moment of weakness", she paid extra for the megaplier. Beginners don't do that.

                She didn't throw away or give away the ticket once that so-called moment of weakness passed. She kept it, somewhere safe, and then even checked the numbers. Why bother to check the numbers???

                It didn't once cross her mind NOT to claim the money, she instead, devised some rather devious and morally wrong ways to get at the money. If this woman was as torn up about winning as she claimed, we'd never had heard about her. It would have been yet another unclaimed jackpot.

                Also, not a single mention of her giving it away. No mention of a charity or anyone in need that could benefit. Trust me, if she's big into church then she's well acquainted with people who could be helped. Not a single mention. 

                She wants to be painted as handwringingly conflicted, but she isn't. Conflicted people don't make all the clear cut and one directional decisions that she has to get at and keep the funds.

                    That would make the most sense...If she didn't actually want the money, but she does so she won't. All this blathering is for her pastor's benefit. She has no problem keeping money.

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

                    The odds are about the same.

                      It sound like a bunch of Foolishness ...she played cause she WANTED to WIN !!!!Just like everybody and anybody that buys  a LOTTERY TICKET....

                        No Pity! worlds smallest violin.  if she lets others driver her motivations, the money wont long be hers. im sure the church wants the money. notice she was worried about them FINDING OUT, not the fact she broke and bought a ticket? will be interesting to see who actually gets the rest of the money,  after the govs biggest cut.

                          Exactly. Totally agree.

                            Please note, this does not apply to every state. In some states it doesn't matter if you form a trust. The winner's name must be published. Others have tried the trust route before only to be thwarted by the state's lottery rules.

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

                            The odds are about the same.

                              Yep, "do as I say, not as I do."  It's like so many of those shyster TV preachers, they want you to give your soul to God, but make the check out to them.
