 ...if I win a jackpot?

 You guys know that I had no intention to go public if I won a huge jackpot because I made too many enemies for last ten years.

 Welll, something changed me. I am fully aware of the disadvantage and the damage upon me. But...well...?

 I am not saying that I will tell my life story during the press conference. I won't. But I will say that I am coming forward despite of any possible attack from my 'enemies'. No, it's not some gang warfare or anything.

 If I come forward, I know that there are at least a couple of lawsuits awaiting for me. And they will surely take a bug chunk out of my winning.

 There was a time when my life was brutally shattered by some unfortunate encounters. No, it's not like I got shot by anyone. But...

 I just want to make them groan in jealousy. Immature, I know. But I am really compelled to.

        The first thing you should do when you win is hire a VERY VERY good attorney, especially if you know you have lawsuits waiting in the wings.  The attorney can tie the money up in a trust, so even if you get sued they can't touch your winnings.  Wink 

        I plan on having my attorney claim the money and do the press conference during which he will say very little, then since my state insists on having the winner take a picture with the check.  I'll arrange to have the picture done at the store where I bought the ticket.  I'll show up with about 100 paid extras and we'll take the picture together and I won't ever tell which one I was.  That's the plan at least, I'm sure the lotto commision will do their best to mess that up.

        As to the rubbing it in their faces that you are rich, you don't have to let them know you won the lottery, just that you have a ton of money to go around and they aren't getting a thing.

              I am so glad that I live in a state that I don't have to worry about a press conference.

                Obsessing over what to do about a jackpot that you haven't hit isn't the best thing you can do.*

                Since you asked, however, and you were to hit, I'd say (assuming you live where you have the choice of remaining anonymous), not remaining anonymous coukd become one of the biggest regrets of your life.

                It really could turn out to be something that would haunt you from that day on.

                 

                *In one og hid books, Mario Puzo tells of his being in an Army hospital in world War II. He had a head wound and was in a ward where everybody had a head wound.

                One day one of the guys in the ward said, "Hey, I'be got a million dollar idea!"He asked everybody in the ward what they thought of it, and when he got to Puzo, he said, "Maybe you should go across the hall and ask people who haven't been hit in the head about your idea."

                Wink

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                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.

                   It's all because of those two dreams with numbers. If I didn't have the dreams then I wouldn't give a rat's ass about lottery itself.

                   So yeah, I'd rather keep myself low profile as much as possible. I don't want to be scarred by avalanche of lawsuits.

                    I thought there was a "statute of limitations" as far as someone suing you from the past?

                    As for the present..........letting the world know you have money may set you up for future lawsuits. People do some crazy things if they think it will make them a fast buck.

                      The thing about of press conferences is sometimes they help you keep the media away from your house.  The last thing you want is reporters camping out waiting for an interview.    The best way to avoid that is to get the press conference over and done with.   Maybe ask lottery officials to schedule the press conference for a particlar time/day where your profile/newsworthyness is less noticeable.

                       

                      If you want to be tricky and somewhat anonymous hire an attorney that can create a trust for you.   The trust claims the winnings and thus it doesn't matter how many people wanna sue you.   They will NOT be able to touch a trust fund
