    Ira Curry did not hold a big check or do a press conference and look how the media put her business out. Remember the Maryland winners The Three Amigos. LOL. In Maryland you can claim anonymously so why show up at all.

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

      They could be my father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate. Naughty

      Then you better take the first flight out for SFO.
      What l like to know is how did the press get pictures of Ira & her husband on a trip to the UK and her sitting at her workstation?

        Jon D,

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

        EXACTLY!!!  People say that want privacy, but then post all their business out there ... smh.  The digging through "public" records though is really horrible and over the top.

        No No  Not nice ...

          I think they got many of the pictures through FB before she changed her privacy settings.

            Not a word from the media about these three even though it was revealed that they were employed at a county school.

            I have no doubt they are enjoying life without the headaches.

                It was probably because of how huge the jackpot prize was. A few lotto winners from this year who won under $300 million didn’t do a press conference and there was hardly any news about them. She made the mistake of deleting her facbook account too late and now those pictures were all over the news. I saw them on NBC, ABC, Fox 5.

                  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".

                  If it had of been me that won...you could say what you wanted to about me, I just know I would be the one picking up the big check, cashing the big check and subsequentially spending some of the big check...So they could do or say whatever they want to when I win, cause I'll be the one with the millions

                    She could have waited and formed a Trust to claim the prize instead of in person, and let the lawyer have his face all over the news instead of hers and her family's. He'd love the free publicity.

                    Does that mean people will never find out who you are? Maybe not, but it significantly reduces your exposure. By the time several weeks have passed, the news and tabloids will be on to the next story and the next lottery winner will be upon us.

                      I agree that digging through public records and reporting on things that happened 20 years ago is a low blow.  As Jon D said earlier, once they get your name that's probably one of the first things they do, is search through public records.

                          Well I'm glad I live in a state where you can remain anonymous. Perhaps Mrs. did have a plan before coming forward...we don't know if she and her family are stiil even in the area?????? Lets all just try to be happy for someone you just want we all are hoping and playing for weekly(the big WIN). Thanks.

                            Yes Jon D, I agree

                            http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/269921

                            There are probably lots of questions just like yours many other players would like to ask too and that's why there is a small army of reporters camped outside her home. We can't have it both ways, we either respect the winners privacy or require every winner to answer any and all questions.

                              Well, he got something out of this deal as well...in addition to his new found fame I hope this publicity will bring him more business as well. I'm happy for them all and hope my and your turn will come around soonWink. Pardon the errors in my recent post I wrote while trying to multitask.
