    if anyone?

    I would first tell my close family... and I think I would eventually tell my best friends but ask them to keep it a secret. I imagine it would become obvious after a while that you'd come into money

    My parents and my best friend.

    I know if I went public, I'll have about 100 'friends' suddenly start talking to me again :lol:

    Just close family

    wouldn't even tell my friends, listen carefully - money and friends do not mix!

    trust me, no matter how damn close you are, most of them change when one of you becomes a little more wealthier

    Only my parents probably, my dad's smart and would advise me on good investments and I could pay them back for everything they've done for me

    I'd rather get a tutor in a language that isn't my own

    I'll tell no-one.

    The deserving will be secretly given a hand out.

    The non-deserving won't waste my time hassling me for money.

      I wouldn't tell anyone. I would give people that have been good to me a share (parents, grandma, a few others) if they agreed not to tell anyone where it came from
