Thank you! it was my biggest PB/MM win so far but to be fair I also went overboard from my usual 2 tickets when I ended up with 27 for the last drawing.

I went a little overboard on mine also but I came up with just $4.

    l am trying to figure out what concerns you the most..

    Her Age, having 4 children, her coming forward this soon, giving to her Church?

    Have you given it much thought that she could've been on welfare and has now been unshackled from it? Her moment of Financial Freedom has arrived! 

    She is getting North of $80 mil.. who blows through that amount of money but..some NBA players & Mike Tyson! Give Her some credit.

    Plenty of past winners have blown through that kind of money and more. She didn't make a smart move by going public on her own via the media.

          "Plenty of past winner's have blown thru more than $80 mil?"

          Don't take this personal but l Challenge you to produce 3 such winners; not 4, just 3 who burned through that amount. Second thing : She is Excited. .excitement does things to people,  whether it was a wise decision or not to come forward this quick,  it is a decision she made.Don't forget the word EXCITEMENT. 

          By the way in an earlier posting l mention a project Engineer from Minn in 2013 who came forward within hours or a day after him winning half of a multi million dollar jackpot- an Engineer for crying out loud,  so let's just stop nitpicking this wealthy woman.It's her party and she can cry if she wants to..

              26 years old, works at Walmart and has 4 kids. That money is as good as gone. After her friends, boyfriends and family, the church, lawyers and financial experts are done with her she'll be lucky if she has $50,000 left to her name when this is all done. When you win a certain amount of money your previous financial circumstances should really be evaluated a mandatory percentage of the money should be placed into an account that you can't touch for X amount of years and distributed gradually for your protection. This goes for pro-athletes also. You can't hand someone that was making $8/hr tens of millions of dollars in one fell swoop, like a monkey a loaded gun. The ones too that are eager to come forward right away and let everyone know they one as opposed to taking their time, setting things up and trying to remain anonymous are the ones usually prone to disaster. This is going to be a real sad story down the road.

                Obvious Marie Holmes is a Christian and she is being obedient by tithing she is giving God all the glory when you win you can do what you want with your winnings as she is doing. There was a man in Missouri that won the Powerball at the store he bought the ticket from he did an interview the next day and he had multiple kids as well plus the kids his girlfriend had so far there has been no bad news stories about him.

                Tithing is the biggest scam in the world, and her church will milk her dry.   Now that she has money, that church will make her feel guilty if she doesn't give at least 50 percent to them.

                The other 50 percent will be pissed away by these financial "advisors" who love to take advantage of financially ignorant people.

                She'll be back at Mickey D's within two years, and I will bet any amount of money on that.

                  If she stays in her hometown and is unable to find a trustworthy tax attorney/CPA/advisor then perhaps your scenario will play out. On the other hand, if she is able to get away and start a new life in a different state then I feel there is hope for her. She needs to get away from Shallotte, NC as soon as she can or the vultures will prey on her.

                  As of today, her as well as her family are no longer safe. I hope she can go to a bank and get a cash advance and leave town as soon as she can. That also means yanking her children out of school.

                    The three reverends in my neighborhood that live in million dollar homes and drive Mercedes, Jaguars and BMWs would like you to kindly keep your thoughts to yourself. I can't decide if they are the bigger con artists or the guy that runs some charity that has an expensive house also as well as 3 cars that cost over $100,000. No Nod

                      " This is going to be a sad story down the road?" You know this how, by guessing?

                      By the way have you ever collected $80 mil after taxes? Are you a financial adviser who has looked into past clients habits and see the same in this woman's financial history and now feel that you in a position to come up with these gems of foresight?

                      * How would you like reading your post if you won that money and others said that about you?

                        Know  what Louie- you ought to take the earliest flight to her city, ask her for a one on one discussion to " alert" her of the Perils that await. I mean dude, look into the whites of her eyes and even if you have to shed a tear in your conviction, let her know you truly concerned about her & the kids..that should win her over..

                          So because she's a Christian and is obedient she is ignorant???? WOW!!!! What makes her ignorant because she decided to tithe and consult an attorney and adviser like most winners do? I don't know why you are calling this woman names all because she decided to go public like many other winners have done. Yes she should of waited but she didn't so get over it hopefully her attorney has advised her of such anonymity.

                            What if...just what if her Church "took her in" when she had no one to turn to. What if they showed great love for her and her family, providing food & other necessary things. Love compels us to return the favor- we know squat on how her church reached out to her etc etc. If she feels she needs to tithe- she could make a  $5 mil donation and still good about herself.

                            Others shove their millions up their noses and no one cares..yet just you give to your Church or place of Worship....

                              I really don't know what your problem is? There have been winners that have went public in the beginning and disappeared out of the media after receiving their winnings. Chris Shaw won the Powerball in 2010 he came forward the next day and he seems to be doing ok. Paul White came forward within days he won it 2013 so far so good. Ira Curry won the Mega Million is 2013 and she went public before she cashed her ticket so far so good. Dave Honeywell won the Powerball in 2013 8 days later he and his family went to the location where he bought the tickets to receive the ceremonial check so far so good. and lets not forget Lottery Post favorite winner Pedro Quezada he also went public so far so good.

                              No one knows what the futures holds for this woman(except that she has millions in the bank) why don't you hope that she does the right thing with her financial blessing. As a Christian Conservative I wish her and her family the best.
