      Good luck telling the paparazzi that. They will hound you like a celebrity until you smile for them. Surround your house with satellites and helicopters and never allow you to leave. Your mailbox will be packed with dear santa letters from millions of picky kids.

          Apparently your new to this anonymity thing an must live in the country or gated community here in the city where I live if you or the news advertised the fact that you won a large sum of money your property and family members would all be in jeopardy.
          Don't kid yourself anonymity is a good preventive method to secure your estate. And even that is not foolproof.

            Relatives would be the main problem for some of us, and in my case I would have to cut myself off completely from them if they knew I had money.  I have a sibling who wouldn't think twice about killing me if she thought it would get her an inheritance more quickly.  I'd have to make certain she completely understood that she isn't in the will, and every few months fax her a copy of the page where it says that when I die she gets $1 to remind her why she's not killing me.  And I still couldn't be comfortable, because she'd be scheming up some way to get around that and get her hands on the money however she could.  Maybe if I was dead, then she could come forward and claim that the ticket was half hers.  Hmm, I wouldn't be here to deny it or fight her.  Maybe it would work.  Even that small of a chance would be worth it for someone like her.

            In my state, you have to release your name but don't have to do the presser.  Unfortunately, I have a fairly unique name, so I'd have to disappear off the face of the earth if I ever want a minute's peace.  I doubt I could convince relatives that it's a different Kau who also happens to live in Boise Idaho who won that pile of cash. 

            Many states only require a few weeks residency to do a name change.  I plan on going to a different state and changing my name to Jon Doe, going to another and changing it again to Jack Smith, and just keep doing that till I'm lost.  This would probably take less than a year, and I'd love to spend some time traveling the US anyway. Then go to the state I want to live, and have some peace.

            Now, if I could be anonymous, I probably wouldn't have to do all that.  I'm not super close to my family that they know anything about my present finances other than what anyone could observe from the outside.  So I could move into a nicer home and make up something like I got an early retirement package from my company that, combined with my savings, let me buy it.  Then tell them I'm doing consulting or contract work part time to pay my living expenses.  They'd never know that when I'm supposedly traveling for work I'm really off having fun in Europe or New York or San Francisco or Santa Fe.

              Prior to winning a jackpot generally most of your relatives and friends are in the general area of your income. Winning a jackpot would put you far above their income so naturaly problems will arise.

              If you are wealthy to begin with you generaly would have well to do relatives and friends. Not much problem with being hit on there, but possibly.

              It all boils down to if you are the wealthy one you are the come to person. Just a matter of learning how to deal with the situation.

              Get advice from a rich person on how they handle it.

                  BB:

                  You are assuming people will accept a "no" and go away. I have written a couple of books and still have a day job and you would be surprised by very well educated people asking me repeatedly how much money I make, how much I have in the bank, and constant fishing for financial info, etc.  I always say I never discuss money but I have had to go to extreme efforts to reinforce that "no means no" and "go away." The more low key you are about it and close mouthed, the more they seem to think you are sleeping surrounded by gold bars.  These same people who have dollar signs in their eyes want me to tell them "shortcuts" to write a book, are unwilling to do any basic reseach on the process and expect me to do it for them. One guy even told me "how I am I going to get a  book deal, learn the process unless YOU do it for me?"  I aways give one time tips and point them to resources online (and a few take the ball and run with it from then) but the unreasonable demands continue often long after this point. For these people, I end up tellling them that I think thet have zero aptitude for writing and they should move on. 

                  I can only imagine what it would be like with millions of dollars.
