What if?

I was reading an article about the Georgia truck driver that won half the 390 million lotto. He will receive over 80 million after taxes as his half of the winning. I can't even imagine what it would be like to have that kind of money. If you suddenly found yourself with all that money what would you do first and how would you make sure you weren't taken advantage of my people?

I would invest most of the money and probably not change that much about my lifestyle. Maybe work a bit less, guess I could afford it :-D And of course travel some more.

Wow, just one million would be alot of money! I think I will put it into the bank first before taking time to think about what I will do with it. My first priority would probably be to pay off the loan for my apartment so that I can really call it my home. As for how not to be taken advantage of by people - I think that I will have to be discreet about who I give it to and if it is worth it. I would like to make the lives of my family members more comfortable and help out in whatever areas I can. Also, I would like to give to some to charity organisations that will really benefit from my giving especially like orphanages, rehabilitation centres and nursing homes.

Such things happen in human life . No one can predict what will happen if one gets a lot of money suddenly. Now I may say that I will spend the money for a good public cause. But...if I actually receive, Only practical experiene can clear the doubt!
