American woman refuses to be named after winning $712 million

A New Hampshire woman won the Powerball jackpot of $560 million in January, but has yet to claim her winnings. "It becomes public, and you lost the option of staying anonymous".

"She has described the signing as "a huge mistake", said her legal counsel at Hillsborough County Superior Court South, Nashua.

The lawsuit said that previous winners have been "victims of violence, threats, harassment, scams and constant unwanted solicitation".

In the grumbling, Gordon contends that security is profoundly critical to the long-lasting New Hampshire inhabitant, who needs to utilize the trust to give a bit of her rewards to philanthropy while remaining "a noiseless observer to these benevolent acts", reports The Union Leader.

Law, along with the rest of the Umbrella Movement, for the Nobel Peace Prize, calling the case against the three "trumped-up". The move was broadly seen as an attempt to sideline the popular young pro-democratic figures and intimidate other activists.


"The New Hampshire Lottery understands that winning a $560 million Powerball jackpot is a life-changing occurrence", Charlie McIntyre, the New Hampshire Lottery's executive director, said in a statement.

The jackpot victor has now filed a suit against the New Hampshire Lottery Commission, declaring that her right to privacy and safety will be threatened if she has to identify herself while claiming her fortune.

The winning ticket was sold last month at the Reeds Ferry Market in Merrimack. Her fear is that won't be possible once people know she won so much money. She says she was just following the instructions on the ticket and on the state lottery website.

The unidentified victor is going to court in hopes of getting her winnings while maintaining anonymity. He also said that he's glad to be getting all the attention, which has boosted his business.

The complaint stated the anonymous victor had followed the instructions on the commission's website, and signed her name on the back of the ticket. She says she was simply following the directions on the ticket and on the state lottery site.

However, under New Hampshire rules, her name must be made public in order to claim the prize. But he said the state attorney general's office has advised him that "the lottery must proceed in accordance its rules and by state law in processing this claim like any other". "While we respect this player's desire to remain anonymous, state statutes and lottery rules clearly dictate protocols".
