Trust Powerball!

Lottery winners are getting smarter… here’s some news from www.powerball.com on a recent winner:

The Oklahoma Lottery announced on August 2, 2006, that the $101.8 million jackpot winner of the drawing on June 17, 2006 has claimed the prize through a trust.

“The trust format was also used because the beneficiaries wish to maintain their privacy, and they kindly and respectfully have requested that all honor their desire for privacy.”

Apparently it takes a while to set up a trust… it took the winners 45 days to claim their prize.
