American woman refuses to be named after winning $712 million

New York Lottery Powerball tickets are displayed in a store in New York City U.S. on Aug. 22 2017

A New Hampshire woman won the Powerball jackpot of $560 million in January, but has yet to claim her winnings. Jane Doe could have had a trustee of a designated trust sign for her, the lawsuit claims.

"After completing and signing the ticket, Ms Doe met with counsel and learned for the first time that a trust could sign for and collect the winnings, thus preserving her privacy", says Mr Gordon.

In the complaint, Gordon argues that privacy is deeply important to the longtime New Hampshire resident, who wants to use the trust to give a portion of her winnings to charity while remaining "a silent witness to these good works", reports The Union Leader.

Gordon calls her "a connected with group part" who "wishes to proceed with this work and [keep] the flexibility to stroll into a market or go to open occasions without being referred to or focused as the victor of a half-billion dollars".

"You know, my wife had said she wished that she had torn the ticket up".

In 2016, the state's victor of a $487 million US Powerball jackpot chose to remain anonymous, claiming their prize through a trust facilitated by a local law firm.

The New Hampshire Lottery Commission requires the victor to sign a ticket before claiming their prize money. Two years ago, a Georgia forklift operator who won $434,272 in a lottery was executed in his home by several masked robbers as he pleaded for his life.

Janet Yellen's Fed tenure may be the calm before the storm
He described Yellen's record at the Fed as "pretty darn good". "The banking system is more resilient", Yellen said. The vote for the sanctions was 3-0, with the incoming chairman, Jerome Powell , joining Yellen and Gov.

McIntyre stated that he understood the plaintiff wanting to remain anonymous, but he said that rules are rules.

New Hampshire lottery rules state unclaimed Powerball prizes lapse following one year.

"While we respect this player's desires to remain anonymous, state statutes and lottery rules clearly dictate protocols". She had purchased her ticket at Reeds Ferry Market, a convenience store in Merrimack, New Hampshire, and the owner of the store has already claimed his prize of $75,000, which he was given for selling the lucky ticket.

"Can you believe someone just walked into my store and won?!" said Sam Safa, as the mystery over the victor grew.

The commission has since consulted with the state's attorney general's office and reported that the woman will be required to abide by the disclosure laws.

(Don't we all.) But she doesn't want the hassles of being a big lottery victor, such as being besieged by requests for money, losing her ability to go out in public incognito, having to change her phone number and perhaps address to avoid scams, theft and unwanted visitors.
