my brother won a million dollars 20 years ago and they made him take his picture and gave out his name and it was awful for him

he had to change is phone # 4 times but they would still get it and called him all hours of the day and night

he actually got a call from some saying that he went to school with my brother and that my brother had borrow a  $5.00 of him and he wanted it back with interested  and one time he was in a store some woman was staring at him then all at once she yell out hey everybody that the man that hit the million  i wonder  what  really happen to the big jackpot winners 

 when i hit the lottery i will check into letting a proxy to claim  it

That's why if I won, even claiming as a trust, I would set my phone to only allow numbers that I have in my address book. That way it doesn't matter if people get my number because they'll just get a busy signal.

It's what I'd suggest everyone do if they won big. I'd of course also make sure I had random important numbers on my list so that I wouldnt miss them (such as bank numbers, for fraud detection type stuff.

I had also thought about getting a number under a friends name, where I would pay them the upfront amount plus some extra for their hassle, that way I would have a safe number that nobody knew was connected to me.

 

It's weird, a part of me wants to win the lottery just so I can see if I can outsmart all those people who would want to contact me. The biggest issue would be my address, though I'm expecting to be moving within a year anyways plus I don't get anything sent here unless it's something from family or an ordered item, so it wouldn't be a huge hassle in that aspect.

    Just be careful ttech, there's a lotta slackers out there that always want something for nothing.

    And they're destroying the country right now.

    Best of luck to ya.

    Hope you win before the dollar collapses.

      for those worrying about a photo taken, tell them you are of a faith that denies photos, some states wont force the person then.

      I dont care who see's my picture, I'm dressing like Phylis Diller and messing with the whole media gammut anyways :)

      I am 100% for sharing with the public the winners name, too many ways for the Lotteries to say someone won and then pocket the actual winnings. Which really peeves me that each year soo much winnings goes' unclaimed yet they refuse to give it back to the players in 2nd chance drawings. In times like these, give back to the players thru end of year drawings....Its our playing money anyways that sat with interest accumalating....(okay I'm done ranting...back to making my wig for the big day, gonna use some of Rdgr's beard hairs LOL!!)

      ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

       Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

          To all y'all RKIs:

          In Georgia, what are the rules concerning (blind?) trusts and having an attorney claim on your behalf at the required press conference?
