Do you think it it's OK to go to the lottery office and claim the prize myself? I know that media doesn't give that much attention to small jackpot amounts. Say I won $17,000,000 and receive $6,000,000 cash value. I think the press conference is an OPTION so I can ask them not to do one and ask for no camera, right?
You know, I don't think setting up an LLC for a FEW millions is a bit of an overkill. And I almost always use my English alias. (and I almost never use my real given name) Setting up an LLC will cost money and I really can't trust a lawyer to claim the jackpot. (It might sounds ironic, but I'd have a lawyer to claim it if the amount is huge. )
Yeah, I know. But I came to think about this because of the news about the elderly winner.
