What lawyer never heard of claiming a huge lottery win thru a trust?  They need to fire him and get another lawyer with common sense.  They need to move and get unlisted numbers.  They can forget privacy, normalcy after announcing to the world they just won the lottery.

 

What's up with that lawyer anyway?

In Pennsylvania they will still publish your name if you use a trust to claim your prize!

IDK about TN ............

          Since they appear to be so kind, I wonder how many charities will come knocking soon?

          Reminds me of the movie "The Jerk" when Steve Martin is handing out cash to all the crazy charities.  "Cat Juggling, I heard about this.  How much do you want?"  ha ha.

                  UnhappyThey are dumb! Why would you go back to work for anybody after winning all that cash. They pop up on The Today Show for all to see before they cashed the ticket. They are just asking for some bad guys to kidnapp them or worse.

                  You can do anything if you put your mind into it. The sky is the limit! Cool

                    Honestly,I do not see anything wrong with Tennesse Jackpot winners!

                    They wanted to use the opportunity to be well known people in the globe.They knew the whole World was asking one question "Who are the most luckiest People on earth?"

                    I'm sorry but you are very wrong.

                    You just win the lottery or in this case the most publicized Jackpot ever in history. 

                    And your first instinct is to go to the Today show? And not claim your prize?

                    Not only are the prize winners idiots, but so is their attorney and the attorney's daughter.

                    If you watch the video, the hosts of the Today Show (who are puzzled) make it clear that the winners went to great lenghts to contact the Today Show.

                    AND what kind of attorney gets their daughter involved in a client's legal business?BS

                      The Today show clip I saw had the female host saying 'ya know I have relatives in Tennessee, I could be your cousin!'

                      So even the Today show HOST was trying to hit them up for money!!!!  No Nod

                        She was just making a joke. You should watch the entire video and "read between the lines". The folks at Today think these people are idiots too.

                          you kinda missed the point, even someplace they 'trusted' joked about hitting them up for money.  Imagine what professionals will do to them?
