I would be so scared of publicity if i won a big Jackpot. I believe it would be a double edge sword. Is there any way of someone winning a big jackpot and remaining anonymous?

It's better to ask for permission than to beg for forgiveness.

    only thing i can think of is not to claim the prize.

     

    or maybe use a search feature somewhere around here

      hi frankieh , I'm pretty sure , that if you hire an attorney to do a trust or LLC for you that he can pick up the check for you , you may want to inquire about this in your state .

      I intend to win a multi-million dollar lottery jackpot in the very near future

        I would prefer to remain anonymous but I'd love to win a big jackpot anyway I can, even if it means I can't remain anonymous.

          Thanks Savagegoose! I haven't hit the lotto, not on a large scale yet anyway, but i asked the question in response to a conversation i had with my sister. She had an idea that if she hit the jackpot, she would pick it up in disguise. Thank you for the link. Can't wait to read it!!!

          Hugs!!!!

            Hello hoping2winbig (by the way, i hope you DO win BIG!!!) The attorney idea sounds great as well!! I do have an attorney friend that i trust, in the event that i would win the big bucks one day. Great advice!!!!

            Hugs!!!!

              I'm with you there magamanx!!! But if there is a way around getting publicity, i'd find it!!!! Thank you for the comment dear.

              Hugs!!!!!

                We have discussed many times to wear a disguise, also you can just use your initials.

                Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                For a lead role in a cage?

                  If you are that scared of publicity, then it's best not to play. Problem solved.

                  Really, why worry about something like that when you have very little chance of winning a jackpot anyway.

                  If you play and win a jackpot, then you'll have at least 6 months to claim the prize, which will give you time to figure out how to avoid publicity.

                  But you gotta win it first.

                  CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                        Good idea, I'd wear lots of padding to make myself look bigger.

                            I would get someone in my family (very trusted) to claim it for me, since I wouldn't want to be in the spotlight.

                              I'm totally close to winning a nice prize. And yeah, i am afraid of publicity, who wouldn't be? And i believe people make their OWN luck, but it helps to have a good system! Good luck rcbuckeye.
