Ira Curry claimed her winnings and skipped the press conference. Within hours she was introduced to the public without her permission. The media was in front of her own, pictures of her home and car were posted online and pictures of her and her husband on vacation was also posted. There is no privacy in winning. and players need to accept it. Some people actually made comments lke "look at that house she live in". and "why was she even playing".

      I'm actually surprised when people who've won huge jackpots can actually remain anonymous. You would think that in this day and age, if someone really wanted to, they could find out who the Jackpot winner is. Also, If you win for example 100 million dollars, it would be kind of hard to hide that fact. I mean wouldn't your friends notice something different when the jackpot winner has been announced in your city and you suddenly quit your job and go into hiding? Wouldn't the friends start talking to the media about who they think the winner is, based on your actions. I would think that eventually a huge jackpot winner(anonymous or not) would be found out.

        Yep, as soon as they find out your name, they'll be digging through your entire social media presence, pull public court records to find bankruptcy filings, trace your address history to find your roots in Bronx, NY, where her sisters living in public housing are now scrambling to move to avoid being attacked.

          Jon D,

          Darn good points.....and yet another reason to just stay off of social media.

          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.

            I wonder if she had a terrible time getting back to her home as if there were cars and people lined up throughout her neighborhood.

                  I'd begrudgingly choose rich and famous over poor and anonymous. Very begrudgingly... Sad

                    Hey, I just thought of something, maybe I know the Cali MM winner.

                        Ira is a beautiful lady with a beautiful smile. I am so happy for her and her family. There are so many negative people in the world today but I am sure she is not paying any attention to the haters. Having a thankful, generous, and caring spirit always brings blessings. Just looking at her picture I can see that she has this spirit in abundance, it radiates even from the picture .

                          I think the best thing she could have done is got her affairs in order first.. I would  have left my place first and moved into a hotel before I came forward.. Now these wackos know where she live and what car she drives  and who her children are. Someone should have told her coming forward this fast may have been a mistake.. I know I would go crazy can't wait till I have the money in my  hand but at least wait 2 weeks till all the fan fare dies down. I already have planned what to do if this happens to me.. I will not come back to where I live.. i would get all my things put it in storage and move to a hotel and then when I get my winnings move somewhere secluded at least till all the fan fare dies down.. i wish her the bestCheers

                            The home where Ira Curry currently resides is valued at 155k. She bought the house back in 2003 and paid $275k. I don't think she will be worried about the depreciation of this house when she sells it.

                            I thought it was odd that the media considered her neighborhood upper middle class as most of the homes are 2300-2700 Sq. Ft.
