    WTNHPolice are providing extra patrols around the home of a Massachusetts woman who won the $758.7 million Powerball prize. Mavis Wanczyk, a hospital worker from the western Massachusetts town of Chicopee, was announced Thursday as the winner of the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in U.S. history.

    “This is a great thing,” Officer Michael Wilk, a spokesman for Chicopee police, said Friday. “We want her to know we’re there if she needs us.” Wilk said officers are keeping an extra eye out, and have even parked in her driveway, as members of the media and others have descended on the neighborhood. Officers have spoken to neighbors to tell them that if they see anything suspicious, they should call the police, he said.

    While reporters have been respectful, Wilk said there have been reports from neighbors that others have been hanging around, looking for Wanczyk. “Besides media, there have been people knocking on doors, asking people where she lives. We’re not going to tolerate her being harassed or bothered,” he said.

    Wilk said they were told by a neighbor that she is not around. Wanczyk quit her job on Thursday after learning she had won the prize. Lottery officials say she chose to take a lump sum payment of $480 million, or $336 million after taxes. Wanczyk has an adult daughter and son, and was accompanied Thursday to claim her winnings by other family members.

    If my name was Mavis, the first thing I’d do if I won $758 million is change my name from Mavis to anything besides Mavis. You’re rich. You can just buy whatever name you want. You got a bad draw with that name but it’s not your fault. Now that everyone is gonna be googling Mavis, there’s no better time to make the move you’ve been waiting for.

    And no offense Mavis, but you have to be the dumbest lottery winner of all time. Granted you’re rich as shit and ultimately my opinions don’t matter because you could pay me a million dollars a year to wipe your ass with my face and I’d have no choice but to accept your offer.

    But seriously, you won $758 million, and the first thing you did was waddle yourself out for a press conference? Hey here’s an idea – call a lawyer. Set up a trust with someone else’s name on it and collect the money that way. Keep a low profile. Don’t give your name. Go into hiding for a little bit. From what I’ve read she rented an apartment in Chicopee, so she can just leave whenever she wants. She doesn’t have to sell it. Just get the fuck out of there now and buy a thousand new houses. In the meantime move into a luxury hotel in Berkshires and take a bath in gold coins. Nothing matters anymore.

    But whatever you do, DON’T STAY IN CHICOPEE!!! You’re rich now. Rich people don’t have to live in Chicopee. Chicopee is for people who don’t wanna send their kids to the Springfield Public Schools, but can’t afford to move Longmeadow. The fact that she’s just chillin at home after winning almost a billion dollars is the most insane thing I’ve ever heard.

    And somehow Mass lottery winners are not allowed to remain anonymous. Why? What’s the purpose of this exactly? If you win this much money then you’re a target.

    Anyway, there’s a whole lot of, “muh taxes” in the comments section on Masslive because this woman has all this extra security at her house now. But keep in mind, she must paid hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes on the winnings. I think she’s paid her fair share.

    In all seriousness though, Mavis WAS a nurse for a long time. I don’t know if there’s a profession I have more respect for than nursing. They went through intense training and schooling to get where they are. They sign up to help people who are dying. They see trauma every day. They put their lives on the line as we saw in Southbridge when a nurse was recently stabbed.  They deal with crazy people and nutjobs and are unarmed while doing so. They change diapers. They take care of our newborn babies.

    I just figured she’d be smart enough then to realize that walking into Lotto headquarters and asking for your $758 million check was probably not a good idea. Just sayin.

      We were talking about this at work the other day, she definitely did it all wrong. The person who won in NH last year waited months to claim it, and we still don’t know who they are.

      1. Chris


        Unfortunately Mass. law requires you have your picture taken. (Others states don’t require it.) The only way to get around it is to set up a trust and have one of the trustees (who’s usually an attorney) take the picture. Either way lawyers will over bill you once they see this, so you need to be careful. But either way she should have waited a few days at least before claiming the prize. (She had one year to do it.) If you can get credit for a mortgage move first and pay it off once you claim. If not go to a short-term hotel suite if you can afford it.

      If I won a bazillion dollars, I’d pay a bunch of dudes to stand around in front of my house armed with 2-foot long (black) hard rubber dildos, to smash people in the face with if they got too close.

      1. bigdaddy


        Call antifa They have lots of dudes like that available

        BTW some one in my town won 15 mill and had a lawyer show up to claim it No one still knows who the real winner is

    3. They call me Ponch


      I would fake my own death and buy a small country.

      Every heroin addict for 100 mile radius probably has google mapped her place to ask for a measly $100 bucks, what other people have the nerve to just start knocking on doors asking where someone lives? Dope heads, that’s who. I’d say she’s crazy for taking a lump sum but if she’s careful she can make that last for generations of hers to come, who knows though. If I needed emergency help and they were too busy posted up at her house kissing her butt for a tip I’d probably sue her, then she wouldn’t have the money, anyone affected at the time would get to split her riches.

      1. Goose


        Your seething jealousy is noted.

        In what world would she be held responsible for the police department’s (hypothetical) failure to respond? Even in the fairly litigious world we live in, that’s a hard sell, bud. Further, as far as I know, she did not request the police presence personally. And even if she did, she just paid more taxes than you ever would in dozens of lifetimes. I think she earned the right to have police protection (for a bit, at least).

        Lastly, you think dopeheads are the only folk who are willing to pull the shit TB mentioned? While I’m certainly not defending them, you do realize that one needn’t be on drugs to be lazy yet greedy?

        I promise you there are people from almost all walks of life trying to find her right now.

      Masslive had an article on how Chicopee could spend $336, 000, 000. It was absolutely cringe worthy. Fireworks for 61 years, cleaning up the old Uniroyal site. The only valid project was separating the sewer system for $300,000,000. lol. That ain’t happening.

    6. Rico it's claimed already


      If I was Mavis, I would find someone with a veiny cock and make them my fuck buddy. Pay them by the hour… This way they get the message that I want nothing more than veiny cock. Nothing better than finding someone who adheres to the rules of being used!! I have to play me some lottery to get lucky!

    7. Independent Thinker


      Just leave her alone. It’s too bad they make you get photographed.

    8. Navin R. Johnson


      Remember the Steve Martin movie “The Jerk”? When he came into all that money, every con-artist came out of the woodwork giving him sob stories so that he would feel bad and give them money. That’s what’s going to happen to Mavis, if it hasn’t begun already.

      I have no problem with her quitting her job. But she jumped the gun too quickly. I would have spent at least a month researching on my next plan of attack. Part of me thinks she didn’t consult an attorney in fear they would screw her somehow, which I totally understand.

      1. Sonny's Mom


        Attorneys don’t work without a signed “representation agreement” first. Instead of an hourly rate, negotiate a retainer (yearly flat fee). Only poor people “take what they’re handed”, and she’s not poor. Duh.

      2. Worcestrite


        Even worse she told the whole world she’s single and lives alone. BAD IDEA!
        She’ll have all types of men lining outside her door. There’s too many nuts out
        there, she could get hurt. She should at least change her name.

    9. The Vorlon


      Back of the envelope calculations:

      Assuming a 5% return, 40% taxes on that, yields 193k PER WEEK clear of taxes, without touching principal.

      Might be time to look into high ground in FL, and get 5% more.

    10. Tired of Don't Snitch Pussies


      I think she should spend some of that money to get someone to run against that creepy as shit MA treasurer, Deb Goldberg. That corrupt cunt couldn’t stop hugging and touching Mavis, making sure her hideous face was in every picture. I bet editors all over the world are cropping her ugly mug out of the pics so that they don’t get accused of publishing a hate crime photo.


    11. I am actually grateful to the owner of this website who has shared this fantastic paragraph
      at at this time.
