How much money one would need to win before one should seriously consider hiring body guards and buying a bullet proof limousine? Remember, most billionaires like Bill Gates have around the clock protection.

    Winning over £100m I think, plus it would also depend on the area you live in after you have won, if you live in a decent wealthy area then there would be no need to hire security, but if you tend to live in a rough area then you definitely need the limo, guards etc.

          Someone like Bill Gates really can afford it remember the ongoing cost of something like that....Im thinking it would be depending on how many bodies you have covering you and you family and bulletproof vehicles aint cheap ( BMW 750 il w/ bulletproofing starts at 152,000).....the costs would be at least somewhere in the 250,000 a month maybe every per week again depending on various factors....so for something like that....I'd have to  win upwards of 10 Billion....seriously....so I'd never go for something like that

            That's a good answer

             

            How much would that be after tax, considering the government takes half etc?

                  I saw some guy smash a pie in Bill Gates' face one time.

                  So if somebody wants to get to you bad enough they will get to you, bodyguards or no bodyguards.

                  And you have to remember that the members of one particular political party will hate you once you become rich.

                  And they will think that you should give most of that money to the government to be redistributed to people who don't like to work.

                  Enjoy what's left!

                    It isn't how much money you've got. It's how much paranoia. Or maybe how much attention you crave.

                      I think there's a bit of difference between a regular Joe winning money and leaders of corporations and such. Also remember that people just as powerful as Gates don't always carry around that type of security (Steve Jobs would regularly walk around his neighborhood with just his wife and there are numerous stories of him talking to strangers).

                       

                      I don't think there's an amount I could have that would make me hire guards. I could see some people wanting it, but I'd be good with a concealed carry handgun (and whatever new "toys" I've bought).

                        20 million and up .... Until i pack my family and our possessions we intend to keep i will considered getting some security for the family and myself only because nobody in our neighborhood would keep quiet about a big win. And i wouldn't want any harm to come to my family if hoards of people show up at my doorstep.

                        Otherwise i will rent a room at the Hyatt Regency park my family there and have a moving company clean out my house and move it to the new location.

                        Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                                       I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

                            Its all just to off set your taxes.... business expenses.

                            The more money you make you have to find a way not to get killed by SAM.

                            If you can live off the interest and keep your mouth shut... Then there will be no need for guards.

                            If some one ask how did you get your money... Just say I have made some good investments and cashed out at the right time.

                            But I would like to have the  BMW 750 il w/ bulletproofing starts at 152,000 Just in case....Cool Cheers

                            You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?Patriot
