Lottery Winner Contesting Revealing Her Name

Bully for her to try to protect her anonymity, but I think the court is not going to rule in her favor. Frankly, I don't know how I would approach this from the standpoint of security given how unique my last name is and how my family would have targets painted on their backs. Maybe some of our counselors-at-large have some ideas.

Link here.

Quote:
All she has to do to collect a $560 million lotto jackpot is make her name public. She refuses.

The winning numbers triple-checked and the lottery ticket signed, the New Hampshire woman knew her life was about to change in a positive way — except for one petrifying thing.

As the winner of last month’s $560 million Powerball lottery, she would soon be the world’s newest owner of a nine-digit bank account.

But because of lottery rules, everyone in the world would know about it — neighbors, old high school friends, con artists, criminals.

Now the woman is asking a judge to let her keep the cash — and remain anonymous.

In court on Tuesday, the woman’s attorney asked a judge to essentially grant a do-over, according to the New Hampshire Union-Leader. The woman wants to sign the back of the ticket with the name of an anonymous trust, keeping her identity a secret.

The winner is not trying to amend the laws of New Hampshire or the rules of the lottery, her attorney said. She was seeking a narrow ruling from the judge to guarantee her privacy rights.

The thing about being rich is you have to learn “how” to be rich. So she goes on TV for winning $570M. Then buys every single asset in the name of her trust which has some wazoo name. Utility bills in the name of the company I rent all of my vehicles and homes from. Finish that up with a DL address linked to a PO Box and 90% of her worries are gone.

Indeed, however unlike the rich who matured into their wealth, she would have to take a crash course in the "how," which very few people would have the discipline to do given the windfall of this type of winning.

I use every means possible to protect my privacy/anonymity but for $570,000,000, I'd be willing to make a few exceptions...

What I learned: Motherfuckers will bitch and complain about everything, including winning half a billion dollars.

Here's what I'd say, after reading the rules, which are public, and which she agreed to when she decided to play the lottery:

Quote:
New Hampshire lottery rules require the winner’s name, town and amount won be available for public information, in accordance with open-records laws.
Now go fuck yourself and stop wasting the court's time.

Half billion dollars buys a lot of land and a lot of GSDs.



There is a show called "lottery winners", or something like that, that highlights lottery winners and the shit they have to deal with. One guy had parents with a sick kid with cancer show up to their door to beg for money. That'd be pretty fucked up ---- a kid seeing me answer the door naked and drunk with coke still on my nose surrounded by the finest hookers eastern Europe had to offer.

I am hiring 200 former Gurkhas, importing several hundred Thai/Maly/Indo/Khmer girls ( as domestic helpers ), relocating all my old Cambodian Rangers, picking 50 of my best friends, former team mates, and socnet members and I am starting my own city/compound. GPC and Arizona Seal dude will head up security, GS sniper will man the tower. Gay Rhinocerous and Agoge will be my public affairs specialists, 8654maine will be our Doc. Mixedload will manage my website. Gunk will manage the arms room. Gavin will manage the town library. I will have to let Sharks and Silverbullet in just to keep an eye on HotMess and keep him away from all the domestic helpers. Godzilla and Purple can run the bed and breakfast for visitors.

One of the saddest things about this entire event is that this will probably end up in court consuming needless hours and costing her some of her winnings simply to not have to reveal her name.

It's truly a joke that this is even an issue in the United States!

While living in FL, that lottery had the stipulation that your name and image would be released and your payment was contingent on that. One big winner made a lot of preps for the big day (about 2 days before the cut-off). That day he disappeared.

Is it really that hard to change your name and move somewhere else?

I mean, even if it was a pain in the ass to change your name, just tell a few family members you're going to disappear for a while and leave in the middle of the night. Go travel the world for a year until the news dies down.

The lesson here is that before you sign the ticket, make sure your trust is set up, then have a trustee sign the ticket. She signed her real name, meaning she's the winner, not any trust she might set up.

I volunteer to be the slacker in your entourage. And for no extra charge, I will take on the role of court jester.
