In all honesty, I think the first person I'd tell would be a lawyer or professional financial advisor after I put it in a safety deposit box. I've had nightmeres about winning the jackpot and then someone steals my ticket. I don't think my friends or family would be able to keep quiet about something like that, and they'd tell their friends and those friends tell their friends until someone decides they want to steal my winnings.

I'd only tell people I know after the money is in the bank (and invested in the appropriate areas).

    Well I don't go buy a ticket or anything but I would tell my dad after I look to see if he won. He the one who want a bought it. Then go get the money. Im will be so happy. I would tell my dad to get a house. The one we live in now is old. I think bad things happening to me in the house. Some time it make me sad.   Yea then maybe get a hair cut. Yea I would get a hair cut if my dad win jackpot. I'll get my dad to be really nice. To help out city of Detroit and stuff. Then I'll get my dad to take old houses down and then get new house build. I'll do it for a few of my cousin. I'll give them some money like said $300,000 but if they want more. They need to get a loan. You do it a few time it will add up to alot. Then put like 2 millions in bank.  Then get me a car. One that really nice.  I'll do good with money not spend it all. I would help people and stuff.

        i'd probably tell my parents first and have them recommend a good lawyer and certified financial analyst.  After the money is in my hands I'd tell my girlfriend and a few others.  People are going to find out something is up dventually so there isnt much I could do to avoid that.

          the first person i would tell is myself. i fear i may not believe myself though. i could lie to myself.

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

            I would tell my parents and pay off their mortgage and a couple of small gifts for all the years of support they have given me.
