    I would probably tell my family and friends. No reason not to. They wouldn't be getting any of it.

    I wouldn't fancy having my photo in the paper because I am quite a private person but at the same time, I wouldn't care if word got out.

    I don't really see a problem with people knowing. I don't think I would struggle to know who my friends are. I'm no mug. I know who my friends are and aren't and I would quite happily tell those that aren't to **** off.

    I wouldn't be concerned about anyone using me for money, and if they were I'd just cut them out my life.

    My former landlord and his wife won the lottery. Don't know exactly how much but a friend of theirs said it was about 100K. They spent a lot of the money doing up their two bedroom terraced house, which I eventually rented off them for eight years. He was a builder and she was a school dinner lady. They bought a house in the posh side of town for themselves to live in. They were a nightmare; would bully, intimidate me. Call round in the evenings when I was relaxing just watching TV with my son. Knock on the door unannounced to tell me they were here to "inspect the house" [their words]. Would then look around every single room, and criticise me if it was untidy. They didn't give me back my deposit when I left. I had to move because my son was moving to a secondary school in the September, and we needed to be living within the catchment area. Horrible horrible experience on the last day when I was handing them their keys back. Kind of hoping for some of my £400 back. There were a few scratches on the wooden door covering the fridge door. My son had made them when he was much younger. A few other minor things. I was standing in the living room. He was in the kitchen. He calls out to me, "Will you come in here?". So I was summoned into the kitchen like a naughty child to have the scratches pointed out to me. "What's this"? The whole house gone through with a fine tooth comb by the two of them. Pointing out, "This will need to be replaced as it's worn out ", etc. That type of thing. Fairly obvious they had absolutely no intention of giving me even a small amount of my deposit back. Nasty, nasty people. And you should see the amount of friends they both have; both on Facebook and in real life. Everyone thinks they are such great people. Well they've never had to rent a house off them, as if they had they would have seen a very different side to them. Anyway, their marriage ended for good about two years ago. He is still in his fancy house and she is in my old house, which apparently she never wanted to leave in the first place. *******s.
