Thrust,

If you claim your winnings anonymously, you wont have to worry about securty teams and attorneys.  There are countless multimillionairs out there that exists whom people have never even heard of.  Just because some people see the world through realistic eyes, doesnt mean they will not be able to enjoy their winnings or be happy with the world NOT knowing that they are lottery winners.

I remember watching  one of the Lottery changed my life, and the girl complains about jealous friends and stalkers lurking around her home so much that she had to move,--- Then she is dumb enough to go on TELEVISION and not only tells the world what city she moved to, she shows her new home.  Talk about not playing smart.

LOL!!! This is exactly what I was getting at. Security teams and attorneys cost BIG MONEY especially when they're working around the clock. Okay, so a person has the money to spend on such ammenities. My thing is why do such nonsense when you don't have to? Keep quiet and be confindential and then there is no need to seek all this unwarranted protection...it's a waste of money.

The girl you mention here has absolutely no common sense. She may actually feel "unimportant" if noone knows that she's a high roller through the lottery. IDK.

    In the interest of not knowing if Thrust is male or female, allow me to clear something up. In my last post, the "girl" I'm referring to is the actual lottery winner with all the issues...and not Thrust. Just so you know, okay.LOL

      THRUST,

      From what has been shown on The Lottery Changed My Life and The Curse of the Lottery, I don't think any jackpot winner who remained anonymous has regretted it, but there certainly have been some people who did not remain anonymous regret it.

      Coin Toss - well spoken.  The proof of the pudding is in the pudding. Its not like remaining anonyomous and living smart and enjoying privacy is going to attack yo, plot agains you, beg you to death, and spew negativity on.  But being publicly known sets you up as the Patron Saint of the Needy of YOUR JACKPOT!!!!!!

        If she moved to a gated community of wealthy people then everyone would assume she had some wealth, but that would be true about all her neighbors too.  Even if people knew she lived there they couldn't come into the community if they didn't live there or had permission to be there.

          You can't claim it anonymously in every state or with a trust. To think no one is going to know you don't have money is silly...unless you dress like a bum and live in a shack...drive a crappy car. You have millions and one would assume you would buy nice things and people close to you are going to know...and some of those people could be worse than strangers. The people who go on TV with horror stories are just looking for more attention and more money...and they are not me. If you want to claim it anonymously go ahead. If you have millions...you are going to need an attorney or 2...I hate to break it to you. Smiley

              I see no reason to put yourself in the public spotlight if you legally don't have to.  It's not about being scared, it's about doing the right thing for yourself and family.  The right thing for you may not be the right thing for everyone.

              People will obviously know you've come into money if you drastically change your lifestyle.  But what about those that already have a few "nice" things without winning the lottery?  Their friends and family already know they have money, they just don't really know how much, and it's none of their business.

              I'm not planning on any drastic changes to my lifestyle.

                If one already has a nice life style, why gamble? Financial security you can do on your own through saving if you already are living a nice life. If you don't manage your money well then now, then you won't be able to handle millions more.

                Like I said, you do what you gotta do and I will do what I gotta do. Some people make the lottery out to be a curse and having that much money is bad...it isn't...it is what ever you make it. I just want people to be more positive that is all...I guess this concept is lost on some people.

                  Why not gamble and save at the same time?  I wouldn't say someone who gambles a small portion of their disposable income while still saving is bad at managing money.

                  IMHO, I don't think people are being all that negative with the anonymous issue.

                    I am thinking that this whole "claim anonymously" paranoia is BS. I want to be happy about this, I don't care if my name, picture, hometown and state are given...I won, I am going to enjoy this. I don't fear winning the lottery, why should I? It is all about being smart and using common sense. If you worry about winning and what is going to happen...then you don't need to be playing the lottery. Be proud, stand tall and grab that jackpot with respect. Smiley

                    If you really want it...you have nothing to fear. Just be smart. Thumbs Up

                    I totally agree--it seems we have more people afraid of "their" own shadows lately for fear of "what may or may not happen" to lead them to perhaps claim anonymously. It is all about being wise and smart--if you win the lottery, enjoy the moment for what it is.  Why hide the fact that you won--be proud, excited and blessed that it happen;

                      This is a good point and will work as you have described. However, I'm thinking more of once a person is out and about...and known for winning all that money. A few years ago, a very wealthy lady went to a local mall to do some shopping. When she came out, a couple of guys robbed her and actually CUT HER FINGER OFF which had a HUGE DIAMOND on it.

                      Things of this nature already occur haphazardly, let alone from people knowing you come into huge sums of money. I'm just trying to point out how it's better to simply "chill" with all that broadcasting your, "Yeah, I hit!!!" business. Sometimes, people take constructive admonishing all the wrong way. I was only giving sound avice.

                          You said it. Drastic changes will always draw lots of attention. It's like losing weight. If you lose a little at a time, people will notice but, admire you for your "work" and "dedication" to doing so well. But, to go from 300lbs. to 150lbs. in a week will make people wonder and approach you with inquiries and "nosey-ness" about how you did it.

                          To each their own...I'm hopeful that anybody can win but, I curious to how they'll handle the aftermath thereof.
