If she has the time, she should simply change her name and change up her look for the photos. Then, after a year or so, change it all back :-). Problem (mostly) solved though there are sucmbags out there that make it their life’s mission to rip people off ... and not just Democrats.

I don’t blame her. Parasites would make her life a living hell. But then, what do these liberal bureaucrats and judges live for if not to f8ck over citizens who only want to be let alone?.

We will find out anyway. She might as well suffer the indignity of having her name attached to 1/2 billion dollars.

Oh and I want to be her friend.

She can’t set up a trust to collect the money? Or something on that order?

"...anonymous lottery winner..."


For goodness sake, collect the darn money, update your security, and travel on an irregular schedule to all your new houses, lady. Sheesh.

Not in our state, a winner CAN remain anonymous.

Lottery officials may not like it, but tough!

In Hong Kong the pots are comparitively TINY yet ALL winners show up to collect in MASKS —every one of them.

Kidnapping risk too high.

Go take the money....

Change your name legally...

Move out of the state....maybe the country.

Change your looks when picking up the money....

Lot's of options........

Personally I think every state ought to have the winners of big lotteries the option to be anonymous.

On one side of the case are lottery officials who say the integrity of the games depends on the public identification of its winners as a protection against fraud and malfeasance.

Utter horse feces. The lottery can easily just announce the gender, age, and county or city of the winner.

BTW, if you ever win the Powerball, don't claim it immediately. There are attorneys who specialize in lottery winners, and they can create a double blind trust. Meaning the trust would claim the winnings.

But the lottery thrives on people who run out there shouting it to the world.

I hope she wins the case and then it holds true for every winner, from everywhere, from now on!

Sell it to someone for 5 million, let them collect, take the heat, and then get the 555:million from them afterward.

Create an LLC under an alias company name and have money deposited there. I’m sure Hillary can tell you how to do this.

She should go to her tax attorney. Have them create a revocable trust with the proper terms/conditions for beneficaries fund withdrawals, turn the ticket over to the Trustee for that Trust and take the full amount of the winnings to be placed into the Trust. She, then, is just a beneficiary of the Trust. It’s the Trust’s name that would get publicized.

In January 2016, a man in Fitzgerald, Georgia, was murdered during a home invasion after winning a $434,272 lottery jackpot. Authorities said three masked men broke into Craigory Burch Jr.’s home, demanded money and fatally shot Burch. Seven people were later charged in connection with the murder. Three were convicted of murder and other charges last year and a fourth pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

A handful of states, including Delaware, Kansas and North Dakota, currently allow winners to remain anonymous.

The Kansas Lottery website reads: “Most states require the lottery to release the name and city of residence to anyone who asks. Kansas is one of a handful of states that does not have this requirement. If you win a prize in Kansas, you may request that your identity not be released publicly.”

Maryland takes perhaps the most creative approach, allowing winners to use made up names and hide their faces behind oversized checks in official photos. A recent winner who won $1 million on a scratch off ticket is pictured on the Maryland Lottery website hiding their face behind a large check made out to “Montgomery County Millionaire.”

Other states, including New Hampshire, allow for loopholes where winners can remain anonymous by claiming prizes through a trust.

One of the early winners of the Texas Lotto took the commission to court when they wanted to release his name. He won the right to remain anonymous, even though the lotto rules said his name would be published.
