It's important we give them all the fame possible, otherwise any crook can steal your ticket and claim it legitimately with no one knowing. That's what kept crawford shaw from walking away with all the loot.

The ticket was stolen from me..........

With this winnings, I believe its the right of the winners to keep their identities a secret for their safety. Definitely, they'll got the fame, but they should still be careful that whatever they have right before and today will be a bit change in their lifestyles...congratulations people...

yes but these folks weren't winners they where crooks who tried to play the system by stealing my ticket and finding crooked ass attorneys to help them by creating a blind trust and layers of attorneys to creat an attorney client blanket so that they all could hide behind the trust. If we the consumer can't buy a lotto ticket without worry of the clerks and lotto agents stealing it then the system has no integrity. And ignorant People that just seat back and blow hot air just because they where not the victims. I paid my. Money, I am the rightful owner and the legitimate winner.

<quoted text>Look!! I stole that ticket fair & square and next thing I know somebody cheated and took it from me.
I have to support my pregnant sister because we're going to have a baby together and leave this crappy state. The state figured out that were are brother and sister and they said they were going to take our 4 other kids away.
We want to use the money to get out of this state and find a nice place to live.
Now we can't do that because a thief stole my ticket.
nice! Sawaa.
