Chris and Colin Weir: £161 million
Colin and Chris Weir became the biggest British lottery winners in history after scooping a £161 million EuroMillions jackpot last year. That lump sum would earn the fortunate couple almost £2.2 million a year after tax in the top savings account. It also meant they became as rich as the Beckhams overnight.
Unfortunately, it wasn't all good news for the couple from Largs, Ayrshire. After going public, they were inundated with letters requesting handouts. Amid fears people might besiege their home, the couple reportedly had to flee to Spain. So it's perhaps not hard to see why so many jackpot winners opt to remain anonymous.
Would you go public if you won a fortune? What would you spend your fortune on? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

I am so sorry to report that I was able to provide these people with $2,500.00 of money to assist them in helping me to obtain $1,000,000.00 to help the needy and homeless people in my area. Due to their urging and confidence that the money would be coming in just 24 to 48 hours, (except one time was insurance) and another delay was for tax purposes, and the bank was only sending money to me if the required amount was sent by WESTERN UNION and picked up by them by an agent here in the USA, for what purpose, I can only imagine.
In the meantime, I lost my car, I lost my building I wanted to provide for the homeless, and all the cash I could scrape up to fulfill their demands. They even said they would help me by providing half of the money needed to finalized the project. The final blow was that "someone" in their bank stole the money and now they don't know where the money can be found, BUT the bank will be sending me a refund of the money I sent to facilitate the transaction. Do you think I will get it?
Life is not Free, You have to work at it.
