(Californians) why don’t we write to our state representatives to guarantee anonymity to winners?
I am particularly interested by PB and MM jackpot winners.
If we all threaten to by no means purchase tickets once more till they modify the legislation, and we in truth prevent purchasing tickets, they’ll be FORCED to trade this rule. They love our cash an excessive amount of.
Obviously, realistically, numerous other folks will nonetheless purchase tickets, however with a big drop of gross sales they’ll trade the legislation needless to say.
As some distance as I do know, the United States is the one nation on the earth that does not allow you to be nameless (simplest in 6 states you’ll be able to be nameless). I am certain they are able to in finding alternative ways to be certain the winners are “real” and now not any person operating for the lottery.
Even with a blind believe, LLC and so forth the identify continues to be publicized. The California Lottery website online says “You can form a trust prior to claiming your prize, but our regulations do not allow a trust to claim a prize. Understand that your name is still public and reportable”.
How many tales of homicide, harassment, housebreaking have we heard of over time? And in spite of everything, I feel it is unfair that when we win our names are in all places! Our telephones stay ringing and other folks harass us.
In the 6 states that let anonymity, I don’t suppose that price tag gross sales have dropped, however I haven’t any knowledge to verify this, I admit. PB turns out “a little” higher than MM as a result of a minimum of, not like MM, it does not put up the pictures of the winners on their homepage!
(In California) Who will have to we ship the letters to? Ask your friends and family to write too, although they don’t play! Do you guys need to trade this legislation too?
