Are These The Real Powerball Winners?

Wednesday November 30th 2011

The Powerball jackpot win of $254 million remained unclaimed for a few weeks however it was announced earlier this week that the winners are three asset managers from Greenwich, Connecticut. However, since these three men came forward to collect their jackpot win many news reports are asking are these the real Powerball winners? Although these might just be rumours and the men could be the real owners of $254 million jackpot the circumstances surrounding this win do seem a bit odd to say the least.

Many reports are suggesting that these three men who are named as Greg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson are actually covering for the real winner who doesn’t want to be named. It is also suggested that the three men who came forward to receive the Powerball winnings are protecting the real winner by putting the money into a trust.

These rumours may be true as the duration which it took for the winners to come forward was quite a while. Normally jackpot winners make the claim as soon as they can in fear of losing the ticket, however this wasn’t the case which could suggest they are in fact claiming on the actual winners behalf. One of the men, Brandon Lacoff, is reported to have told a friend that they are just representing the real winner as the person wants to stay anonymous.

Whether any of these reports are true or not remains to be seen however these three men are already quite wealthy and they live in one of the wealthiest towns in America so for them to be playing this American lottery does seem slightly strange.
