Missouri here, and oh my, if you're a winner here, they'll publish your name, favorite food, favorite color, names of your pets, and give directions right to your front door.  Worst state of all 50 as far as lottery privacy goes.

Although I truly do think it's a myth that lottery winners are bothered/harassed.  If it is true, all you need to do is ditch your phones, e-mail addys, and move to some foreign country where you can live in anonymity.

With a fancy RV you have a moving front door.

Again, If I stay hidden how are all the concubines gonna find me!?

         Some years back, someone, reporters i think, went in the dumpster,

     in back of publishers clearing house and found thousands of entries in there un -opened.

     

     you know what the envelope looks like, its got them little windows and you can tell if it has a subscription order w/out opening it.

    one time i played a trick on em, i took the little stickers that look like the magazines,

     and taped them inside the envelope at the window instead of on the order form so it would slip past the machine that sorts them.

    i can picture someone at their desk opening the ones w/ orders, WTH ? how did this get in here ? LOL

    haymaker, Emailthat was a funny & clever move on the publisher's clearinghouse , just not enough 0000's in smooth.....LOL

    Anymore special moves like that???Wink

    Good Luck,

            eddessaknight,

       that was a long time ago, and i did that when i had nothing better to do.

      sometimes when i get offers from credit card cos. (i get a lot of them)

         I take the sales letter from one and put it in the postage free return envelope from the other one,

      and vice/versa, they pay the postage, so i'm helping the post office.

       

           now telemarketers are another breed, for which i have no mercy,

      at least one time, one of them had the bad luck of calling me when i had nothing to do,

      kept him on the phone for 45 mins. w/ endless b/s ?s , i began to tire of it and asked why he did't just give up,

      he said they're not allowed to give up, at first i felt bad about what i did, but later realized,

       i may have helped him by making him look for another job. 

       

       

       

      ps.there is a symbol a the start of your reply about email, but i don't have it, sorry.

            I'd keep a low profile, even if I had to go public.

                  Really? Is this a recent requirement because I have read many times on the California Lottery website where it says the winner wished to remain anonymous. The last two or three winners had only their first name and last initial listed in the media section. Why do you think it is a requirement that the winner's name has to be released?

                   I checked the winners' handbook 2007 version. Probably their internal policy has changed.

                    Here in NSW, all winners are allowed to remain anonymous. Most keep their anonymity, it is very rare to hear the identity of a winner.

                    We all get a lot out of lotteries!
