Lottery winners reddit

When he offered $10,000 to improve the city’s water park so that it was more handicap accessible, locals complained that he spent more money at the strip club.

Poor guy. Humans can be real nasty 🙁

The hounding sounds awful but he made some poor choices.

-He stayed in the small town. -He left huge sums in his car (had 500k and 200k stolen in separate occasions). -Pulled out 50k at a strip club and slammed on the bar

Also, he had the problem of being one of the first. We just had a 1.5 billion earlier this year, another one just happened at 1.6. powerball tonight is at 620 and no one seems to care.

>Whittaker’s car was twice broken into, by trusted acquaintances who watched him leave large amounts of cash in it. $500,000 and $200,000 were stolen in two separate instances.

The more I read lottery winning stories, the more it becomes clear that you need to move (pref to another country) and change your name on the social level.

As for the handouts and beggers, it seems like it’d be better to incinerate all of the mail and make several anonymous donations to hospitals and programs (e.g. Make a Wish) in smaller amounts ($50k – $100k.)

It also seems prudent to have a few financial managers who are basically quarantined and unaware of the total sum of your net worth.

While it would be tempting to give money to family and friends, I don’t think you can go down this route with friends. I think helping family out by paying off their mortgage is fine, but I believe that most financial exchanges between friends spoils the relationship. This also applies for treating people to fancy dinners and stuff. I think you’d have to suck it up and split cheques like the pre-lotto days.

Anyway, thinking about this is a fun mental exercise, but I don’t doubt that I’d wind up with a knife in my spine, found days later on my personal yacht (not the one I entertain on.)

But yeah, I totally agree with the top subcomment: consult an attorney. Have that attorney help you with everything, like literally everything. In fact, it might be worth getting two so they make sure the other doesn’t take advantage of you and so you’ll have backup in case one attorney is unavailable. Your attorney should be able to hook you up with a good financial advisor, insurance (you’ll want umbrella insurance along with a bunch of other insurance you probably never knew you might need).

A woman struggling for money revealed she asked her nephew to split a winning lottery ticket that she bought him.

A woman has been left fuming after her nephew refused to share some of his lottery winnings.

Taking to Reddit, the aunt asked whether she was being unreasonable to ask for some money after she’d bought the ticket as a gift.

The anonymous woman explained she’d been struggling lately, and needed to cash to help pay her bills.

She said: “I have had a really rough year, laid off from my job and I’m out of unemployment options.

But as it was her nephew’s birthday earlier this month, she ‘scraped together’ some change and managed to get him a lottery ticket.

“I love my nephew and can’t get by on the thought that I wouldn’t be able to get him a birthday present (Nov 3rd),” she continued.

“I scraped together whatever change I could and bought him some lottery scratchers. and holy s*** he actually won (on two of them no less).

“One was for about $50 which was cool enough but the second one was actually into the middle 5 figures.

“I mean life changing money (I can’t say exactly how much because in our state lottery winners are all public record).

“His parents (my sister and her husband) are very well off.

“My nephew has a fully funded college fund and every material thing he could ever want.”

After finding out about her nephew’s huge win, she called her sister and said ‘it would be really cool if he gave her at least three quarters of the winnings.’

But her sister was fuming and hung up on her, with the woman adding: “I texted my nephew and I think he actually blocked me.”

“Here’s the thing, I NEED this money. It’s a matter of me eating or not eating. He doesn’t.”

Unsurprisingly, the post totally divided the internet, with many saying she didn’t deserve any of the cash.

One pointed out: “Don’t give lottery tickets as presents if you aren’t willing to give up the potential of a win.”

While a second agreed: “You don’t get to ask for part of someone’s gift.

“It sucks you’re having it tough but still doesn’t mean you’re ‘generous’ for asking for only part of the gift. Sure ask them for help, but don’t ask for his gift.”

But another said they ‘totally understood’ where she was coming from, writing: “You’re frustrated that you pulled together this money and someone much more well off managed to win a load of money on the cards you bought.

“I would apologise to them, though.

“But I would also explain you weren’t trying to be selfish and went about it wrong, that it would mean a lot if he would share some of the winnings because you’re really struggling right now and it would change a lot of your life for the better.”
