This story about the missing Lotto winner here in Florida has me freaked out. Other than saying an emphatic "NO!" to all the freeloaders, I'm wondering what else Mr. Shakespeare could've done differently. I'm vehemently opposed to the Lottery releasing the names of winners who wish to remain anonymous. Even if you don't tell anyone, any con artist (and FL is full of them) can find you.

The question then is, what do you do when you win? What does forming a trust do for you? What's a blind trust? Do you send a lawyer to collect? Who in their right mind would trust a lawyer with that much money?

"...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

        You would have to know what your privacy, etc. goals are. The lawyer can tell you which means is best, for doing so.

        There are plenty of (generic) legal info sites to familiarize yourself with the different terms and legal vehicles people use and what each type is suited for.

        Just remember that when you get down to details, your state will have some different rules than other states - e.g. some states lets winners claim anonymously, some allow a lawyer to claim for you, and at least one state let's you claim and take your "picture" behind a big Smiley smiley-face.

          Look,

          This poor guy lost his life not because he didn't stay anonymous. He got stupid hanging around his buddies from the hood. He gave out money like it was candy. In short, he hung with bad people to start with.

          If I win big, I'm not too worried about being anonymous. I just won't flaunt it and I won't hang out with hoods. Hell, I don't hang out with anybody now, so that ain't gonna change. Just be smart, that's all.

          When someone wins a jackpot here in Tx, they publish the name and where the tic was bought, and that pretty much is the end of it.

          CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

              I would like to ask all of you to email the Florida lottery and the Governor of Florida and raise the issue of anonymity.

                I personally wouldn't trust anyone but myself to claim. And I'll make sure I stay anonymous for as long as possible.

                  Um, yeah, thanks Raven. I know what the search feature is. I'm sure there are many threads that could go without posting if we all searched more topics. Sometimes I want to have my own conversation, though. I hope that's okay.

                      The question then is, what do you do when you win? What does forming a trust do for you? What's a blind trust? Do you send a lawyer to collect? Who in their right mind would trust a lawyer with that much money?

                      I was thinking the same thing.  Even California said they have to release your name.  But I called them DIRECTLY   and was told that NO its advertised but you can indeed remain anonymous.

                      My concern is the advice to get a Financial Planner or Advisor.  With all the Bernie Madoffs out there,  who is to say they won't try to steal the money under the umbrella of protection and safe investments?

                      When I win the SLP I will simply put it in a CDARS account. ( providing banks dont go bankrupt) I won't need my money to grow huge,  just provide a nice nest egg, pay for my house being built, a few (anonymous) gifts to famlity and charities.  I will have no problem living with the measily 2 or 3% interest I'd get from banks.  If for some reason I couldn't claim anonymously, I would find a lawyer, pay them a SINGLE fee to set up my LLC or Blind trust where only I or my husband wll be the trustor and beneficiary.

                      Of course, all of this is off the top of my head-however I plan to research exactly how its done.  Trust me  noone will know.  Even now,  my brother nor my sisters even know my address.  It can be done.

                      Have you noticed all the lottery stories we read or see TV  specials about are pretty much the same people?  Think of the thousands of lottery winners out there that we don't know about ($1m or more)  it can be done.  When you win Nino224,  just be careful and trust NO one.  YOU dont change when you win,  THEY do.

                          I'll say it again, it's time for a Jackpot Winners Protection Program.

                          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.

                            LottoCalGal, just a few weeks ago when that guy won the $8 million dollar jackpot they posted his story on the cal lottery website and he said he would like to remain anonymous and they didn't post his name. I always save those type of articles on my computer so just in case I win the jackpot they can't deny me the chance to stay anonymous.
