Money doesn't change people, it only magnifies who & what they were before becoming wealthy.

He was probably like this to his mother before she won the money.

      It's so sad that You can't Trust Your own Family.  It's hard to believe that Greed takes over.

        The family member is being called to the carpet on their financial fudiciary duties. It's standard to ask the courts to make a ruling to assist on getting this adult removed from legal rights to the funds. 

         

        Her age plays a huge factor in this case. She is protected by further senior laws on financial guardians. 

        The part I'm afraid of...is its Florida where the rulings are often in favor of the

        criminal. So the son will be free to exploit...

        I recall how she won the pb,when a younger person let her be ahead in line.

        Accentuate the positive.

          Gloria at age 84, supposedly cut in line in front of Mrs Mindy Crandall to purchase her winning ticket according to media reports.

          "Mrs Crandall says she believes she is the woman Mrs Mackenzie was talking about when she revealed in her public statement: 'While in line at Publix, another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket.' Mrs Crandall, who lives in Zephyhills - the same small city where Mrs Mackenzie retired, told ABC News that she still remembers the elderly woman who stepped in front of her while she was waiting in line to buy her Powerball tickets last month. Mrs Crandall says she was tending to her children at the time and didn't notice that someone had cut the line. 'My 10-year-old said, "Mom, There's a lady in front of us." I noticed that the lady was there. Didn't pay a lot of mind to it,' she told ABC. When Mrs Mackenzie made it to the register, the clerk motioned for Mrs Crandall to come forward instead. Mrs Crandall waited. 'Go ahead,' she told the elderly Mrs Mackenzie."

              Funny you should bring that up CD. I recall when Mindy's story hit the headlines, there were some who suggested that the winning ticket was destined to be hers. Other here were saying that it was highly unlikely given that millions of QP combinations are spewed out in nano seconds, and had she turned her head or looked down, that " moment " had passed beyond her reach. Then we had those who felt Gloria should have given Mindy a few millions, just because.Karma, perhaps- more like greed, depending on how you look at it.

                I would first contact my lawyer then reward the Crandall family for their kindness. 

                 I enjoy the show American Greed. Greed is behind the son's actions. Crying It is family and friends who will be JERKS. Jealous, Envious, Resentful, Killjoys.

                  Really Music? Don’t take this the wrong way, but l have seen some of your posts where you openly state you want One jackpot winner- namely yourself, and splitting the jackpot is out of the question. Yet you will instruct your attorney to do right by Mindy? I think l am going to have a aneurism.

                  On a side note: Have you ever left the theater with a more satisfying ending to a movie than “ Shawshank Redemption ?”

                    Some of the comments on these news stories are really getting weird and makes me wonder if people actually read the story before commenting. The article actually explains the lawsuit is based on Gloria asking for a conservative investment, but apparently  someone convinced her because she could have made $10 million more, it was her son's fault. And before putting all the blame on Scott, Gloria won the jackpot 6 years ago and if she hasn't given Mindy something by now, she never will. 

                    If there is any greed, it's from whomever convinced Gloria to sue Scott. You really ought to wait until the judge decides whether or not to let the case proceed before passing judgement.

                        In response to your last paragraph.I disagree. In order to build a case for further claims the lady has to take one malfeasance at a time. Her lawyer knows more about how to handle this then a lottery poster. I tend to think the son will be removed from his executor position. And rightly so. He took an oath when it was granted. That oath is what this comes down to.

                          THAT'S what happens when one violates the laws of nature.  Nature doesn't care about morals, good, bad, whether you are a pedophile, a murderer, Mother Theresa, elderly, stiupid, smart, or a child to move on you.  All she cares about is that you follow her laws.  A pedophile can win the lottery (Florida) and a murderer can live a free life not caught, if they follow the laws of nature.   People go to great lengths to avoid thinking.  Unfortunately this is an old lady we are talking about here and nature won't forgive her.  You don't do business with family.  She is lucky to have any money left.

                            noise-gate, I will share my jackpot with family, friends, and charity. I do not like sharing a jackpot with strangers. 

                             My comment was that I would like to see Gloria and her attorney share some with Mindy. 

                             Gloria needs to pay for wise counsel. You usually get what you pay for.👩‍⚖️

                              On one of TLCs lottery programs there was a winner from St Louis that said when you win a jackpot family regards you as their own personal ATM. 

                              Caution.

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

                              Lep

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
