How come California will not let us stay 100% anonymous?

 It's a rule. You can choose not to have a press conference but your name should be announced in public.

 Fortunately, even letters from local government only have a part of my first name. Read my first post in this thread and you will understand.

 Let's say my name is Kil-Dong Hong. In most case people just call me Kil Hong, although Dong is definitely a part of my first name.

    buy a million shares of SIRI.  at 48cents a share, it can't go much lower. lol

    besides--it sounds cool to say you own "a millions" of something.

      Yes, that is what I was implying lol.

       

      What steps to take to claim the jp as in do you contact a lawyer..or what lol.

       

      I personaly do not need a financial planner unless they are required in some way or another.I know where every cent will go  without blowing it on stupid junk.

      I would just want to remain annonomoys as much as possible.

       

      some people I know are greedy...but they are not going to stop me from attempting to win!

        I know what you mean on that one....IF one was to close their eyes...and emagine they have just won the jp, they would naturally start thinking about things they have never been able to buy, but can now...or how to plan out their finances etc. That itself does not scare me...its the walking out of the headquarters a millionaire and possibly having every paranoid thought rush through my head...is it just me? Or do you feel that way. ahh I'm just a freak-uh-zoid.  But I have 3 children and the thought of a kidnapping terrifies me.  Or good grief what if I go out of town and someone catnaps my precious Tinkerbella! LOL...I do understand the anonymous request.  If I can't..then I'm building a house on  gated property with 5 vicious dogs, a security system, and a panic room..lol...well, at least till the kids move out...then I won't be so over protective.  But it still won't stop me from playing to win.

        I don't think you need a financial planner unless you want one.  Some say its a smart way to go, but most people I would think know what they want or have an idea they have been playing with.  I don't think anyones idea is wrong, unless its going in a direction of spending it all in under 5 years lol..which I have no plans on doing.  I just want to live comfortable...nothing fancy.  No cars galore..no jets...no mansions....bling-blings etc. I have no use for them and I can't take them with me when I leave this place.  I just want to make myself healthy and give where I can to help others be healthy as well.  For each person I make smile...it..I hope..will make me a better person.

        I'm not too sure how to go about claming and asking to be anonymous.  At this point..I guess I'll just write down my questions and what for that day to come where I'll call their office and find out.

        Surrender You can run, but you can't hide mighty Jackpot...surrender to me at once!

          Yes, I am a very paranoid person.It's a shame that this is something I want so bad! lol. I have my reasons for both though.I know a lot of people that just have no moral standards and have seen people tear others to shreds over nothing.On another note, i am not able to get a 'real" job because of personal reasons.

           

          hell, iv'e always been afraid of someone stealing my dog even though its not even that attractive! haha (only a face a mother can love)

           

          I just hope to remain anonymous if at all possible and hope that I could come up with a good enough explaination on how i came into all this money without revealing the whole lotto thing.I wouldnt even let family know how much exactly i made.I would just give them a cut and keep it at that.

           

          i don't know, it just seems like people think they deserve a cut of money if you win the money as opposed to earning it yourself.

            Flip like 349580234 times in a row.

            Its like poker: you can play your best but you gotta know when to fold your cards and take a rest. Hold your cards, take a breath, and hope that nobody else is stacking the deck.
