      I would respect their privacy. As far as finding someone trustworthy I would just go to the Powerball website & click on the Powerball Jackpot winners & contact the attorney's that represented the winners in Oklahoma.

        I agree DCBF...some people might get offended if you start asking personal questions about their money, especially if they don't know you from Adam's housecat.....

            I would ask her why she isn't doing anything to help her younger sisiters.

                I would never work under the presumption a big jackpot winner has found someone trustworthy to handle their money. Jackpot winners are capable of choosing the wrong people just like anyone else. Just because a person won a big jackpot doesn't mean they have a better ability to pick financial advisors than you or me.

                  Don't care.....those are a dime a dozen and that doesnt mean their method would work for you...Either they picked numbers or the computer did...LOL....but as far as privacy goes I dont mean you just walk up at start asking a complete strangers about their finances....LOL You wouldnt do to anyone whether they won or not.....but if you saw them and said hey your that big winner from such and such..then get into specifics IF they were willing to discuss them with you....What would you ask them.....LOL LOL

                    At the risk of bringing down the wrath of those who think/believe differently... If I were sitting down witha big winner, with the express purpose known that I was going to ask them a question... I would ask them if they are at peace with life now that they have won - and then Christ and Christ resurrected if they responded that they were not at peace...

                    then after that brief 'info session' i would (if they were people i knew) ask if they needed anything that i could help with (just cuz they have a plethora of money does NOT mean that they dont have needs... on the contrary, they probably have more needs now than prior to the win - with no idea how to safely get them met.)

                        maybe I'd ask how long they have been playing, and will they continue to play ?

                        If they won w/ a QP I'd pull out the racing form and ask them to point out 3 horses in each race.

                          Anyways I think my question would be how long they played and how they motivated themselves during the stormy days.
