with your last piece of " This is good news Piaceri". l intend to take the same route should l be fortunate to win..
to the Texas Winner as well.
This is from the Ca-lottery Handbook.
? If you are concerned about people trying to contact you, consider changing your cell and home phone numbers or allow your voicemail to pick up calls for a few days.
? Interview at least three licensed attorneys and select the one you feel most comfortable with. An attorney can help protect you and your assets.
? Interview several Certified Public Accountants. Remember, you will have to pay taxes on your win. An accountant can make sure your taxes are in order year after year.
? If you plan to invest your money, do it wisely. You may consider the services of a qualified investment planner. Again, interview at least three and select the one you are most comfortable with.
? You may want to hire an attorney, an accountant and an investment planner from three different firms. You want them to act independently from one another.
? Remember—you are the boss. They work for you!
? You will receive many offers to donate, invest or downright give away your money. Always consult your expert professionals.
? Spending fast and furious will only leave you fast and furiously broke. Be careful with your newfound wealth!
? There will be immediate interest in your story. History tells us the media will likely attempt to contact you. Their efforts are made easier in this day of internet search engines. With that in mind, we urge you to consider taking part in a news conference. We’ll take the headache away by doing the planning for you. Winners have been better able to satisfy these media requests in one shot and get on with their lives.
? According to public disclosure laws, your name is public record. The name and location of the retailer who sold the winning ticket, the date you won, whether your numbers were a Quick Pick® or your own numbers and the amount of your winnings are also matters of public record and are subject to disclosure.
? You can form a trust prior to claiming your prize, but understand that your name is still Public and reportable.
