Help Wanted
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, February 22, 2006

That's the sign that will soon be in the door of a Nebraska meat processing plant. The winners of the 365 million Powerball jackpot, all 8 of them, were coworkers at the plant and will share the prize.

Good for them. They'll now find out how many real friends they actually have as well as hearing from people who claim to be their friends and long lost relatives.

Strangely enough, I am a long lost cousin to every one of them. Small world.

It’s a blessing and a curse. Some of them will be changed by the money. Others won’t change, but will find everyone around them changes. I wish them the best, and hope they seek out a reliable financial planner right away.

Too bad the lottery commissions generally do not allow a recipient to maintain anonymity. I recall an incident some years back in which a Palestinian man won the Israeli Lotto jackpot and appeared at the press conference with a shopping bag over his head. He definitely did NOT want his identity going public if he wanted his family to stay safe.

Were it me I would definitely not want to be identified either. That’s probably a moot point anyways but still...

Well I’ve thought about this and what if:
I hire a lawyer to represent me. The lawyer is bound by confidentiality and the lawyer interfaces with the Lottery Commission. After all the Commission is concerned with the TICKET, not who actually had the ticket.

Joe’s comment about hiring the lawyer to interface with the lottery officials is dead on. If you go to the mega millions website and look through the list of past winners, you can see that several of the winners were the "XYZ Trust" or some such legal entity.
