avoid Charities and giving money to others.
Seriously if you look at what really messed up people like Edwards and Whitiker it was giving to Charities haphazardly or promising to charities haphazardly.
also wild tipping........ IE Edwards "standard tip is a 1000" if you eat at resturants 100 times that 100000 right there... most people would be happy with say 20% or 30% tip from a lotto winner.. 1000 a pop is just plain stupid.
Ole Jack gave 40 Million to churches and then some of those churches sued him cos he ran out of money to give them the rest he promised to them.....
My policy will be anyone who asks for money won't get it even if I was going to donate to them before they ask. Soon as they ask then they are blacklisted.
If you must donate to charities just donate don't make promises to donate....... because if you can't fullfill them then they can sue you and will. It's happened quite a few Lottery winners.
