I'M not sure why a bank would reject the offer unless it was illegal or not cost effective. Banks are in the business to invest money to make money. If a bank could invest lets say $50 million on a $100 million dollar ticket, they would make $50 million over 26 years (not including taxes) from the ticket. But I'M not sure if it would be cost effective for a bank to do this, a bank may be able to make more than $50 million on  $50 million over 26 years

Of course I would expect to receive all the money up front and pay taxes on it, and lawyers would certainly be involved.  I would dread being publicly identified as the winner because I have scores of friends and family that would hound me for financial assistance, and I would end up losing many if them as friends if I did not financially assist them all equally

Of course I would have no problem helping the ones that needed it to some degree, but you can't do that without alienating all the rest at the same time.

And if a trust is possible that is also an option, but i thought I read a trust is not allowed in some states. I live in Illinois and I do not know the laws on this. Another reason why I considered selling the ticket is because I may be able to get larger one lump sum from an investor than I would from the state

"If a bank could invest lets say $50 million on a $100 million dollar ticket, they would make $50 million over 26 years (not including taxes) from the ticket."

The banks and investors buying annuities only pay a small percentage of the actual value if "you need cash now" and after state and Federal taxes, a cash value jackpot of $75 million is only worth about $43 million. Even if it is legal, I doubt would get more than $20 million.

      "I just don't want everyone to know it."

      The real trick is remaining anonymous after getting the money. Do you really believe your family and friends won't notice you quit your job, bought several new vehicles, a new house with brand new furnishings, and the obvious change in lifestyle?

      "If there is a leagal way to do this in illinois I would love to know it"

      Nobody will buy the ticket before actually checking the value and I wouldn't hand it unsigned to anybody. Some players hand their unsigned tickets to store clerks and are told the tickets are worthless or only won a couple of bucks. You can't remain anonymous by signing the back of the ticket and anyone can sign their name to an unsigned ticket and cash it. It's not the same as a check with "pay to the order of".

      If you find a way to cash the ticket anonymously, let me know because I can't even a anonymus email account without getting lots of spam.

      I would want to remain anonymous.   I wouldn't be purchasing a new house.. there is nothing wrong with the one I have.  I wouldn't be buying new cars..

        Stack

        Take a trip to a large city in your state, take up an appartment and get a unlisted phone, mail box, utilities

        etc....  Then use that address and information when making the claim.  Depencing where you live and the

        state laws you may not have to do a interview with the press or jusr have a lawyer do it for you.  Chances

        are in a large enough city there are several people in the area that have the same name and anyone in your

        true location will most likely think that it was someone with the same name that won.  You can maintain your

        current living address and live as you normally do at home.   If no picture is published who will be the wiser.

          Another "trick" might be to give your dog a full human name and SS#. With a little practice, you should be able to train him (or her Hippy), to

          sign the annuity or one time checks with the paw. This should be a preferably younger dog or pup, to guarantee the continued acceptance of the

          annuity checks. (20-25 years).

           

          The public appearance should be a snap, just throw on a little makeup, shave the face, and tell the officials he came down with laryngitis.

          Why pay the banks some exorbitant fees?    Thumbs Down   Dogs truly are mans best friend, and anonymous ally.

                I see no reason to even buy a ticket that could be worth millions of dollars if you're not planning on spending, investing, or doing something with the money. My favorite winner's line is "I love my job and I'll keep on working" because any of us that works know there are lots of days when we are ill or just don't feel like going to work, but we know we must. That would all change with a multi-million bank account.

                    Keeping full anonymity would be something I'd explore if I hit it big.  But changing my number and moving would at least keep the pests away.

                      RL, that's one of the best ideas I've read on how to claim anonymously without all the legal and sometimes illegal mumbo jumbo we read. Even if your name isn't common somebody will tell you they read where someone with your name won the lottery and probably say "too bad it wasn't you".

                          I thought about wearing some crazy costume if I win but if the costume is too crazy, news sources will pick up on it and then draw too much focus to the win. But I like the burka idea.
