How would they know I haven't signed it?? How would they know where to find if even if I haven't signed it?? and what if they found it but I had already signed it....then what

They would not know if you sign it but they will try to find everywhere they can and if they found it and you had already signed it then they will cash it in unless they ask for id then they would be out of luck

    I see that you're a tad confused by how the process works, so I'll try to keep this simple.

    In states where the lottery requires that your name be released to the public they only release your name they find out who you are. They find out who you are when you claim the prize. You know, by giving them the ticket. There is no requirement for you to boast about it before hand, or to leave the ticket laying around the house while making announcements that you won the lottery and  have the ticket just laying around.

    Sure, there is no requirements but they can still do it and bad things can happen, look at the couple who announced to everybody and then bam, they got murdered who tried to search for the lottery ticket

      "IF" they ask??? IF seriously??? comon you just won millions of dollars and you think they may not ask for i.d.??? There is no chance of that....heck you can't cash a $5 check at a bank (if you don't have an account there...some even still) without i.d.....much less trying to cash in a multi-million dollar lottery ticket....

          Not just Jersey, but even though of the lottery states there are only four that allow remaining anonymous, isn't not allowing it mostly self-promotion on the part of the lotteries?

          Just as a thought, when there are numerous accidents or a tragic death at an intersection or railroad crossing, stop lighgts or signals go up, right?

          So how many horror stories before something happens "all statess" with lotteries?

          I keep thinking about this Jersey one year thing and you'd almost have to relocate, go to the mattresses, something.

          Anyone familiar with Eden Press' book How To Dissapear And Not Leave A Trace?

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Just read in today's paper, 1 yr anonymity has passed in the assembly and now goes to the senate.

            Did people stop playing the New Jersey lottery?

              No, but the state is considering allowing winners to be anonymous for 1 year after winning,

              possibly encouraging more play.

                I could understand lotteries doing that when they started, cause ppl. did'nt trust it.

                but that has long since past.

                and yes the only time problems are worked on is when they draw attention.

                 

                I'll have to check out that book, sounds like a interesting read, even if you don't want to disappear.

                 

                you're one of few ppl. on here that call it Jersey w/out the new,

                for the benefit of others that means he is from here or used to live here.

                          Yeah, as I mentioned to others, the only way to change things here is to do it in small steps.

                            You could become a Tibetan Monk and go into a deep deep permanent seclusion.....  What?

                            I wonder what a tibetan monk would do w/a big JP,

                            I mean, don't monks make beer by daylight and pray by candlelight ?

                              Anonymity is the goal here. What the monks do to each other at night is a personal matter...... What?
