Area Greenwich Man Will Bet You $252 Million / His Life Local Powerball “Winners” Are Fronting

Last week in Connecticut, a theory was put forth: that the three asset managers who’d come forward with the winning Powerball ticket were doing so as a favor for a client who was too embarrassed to do so himself. To the naked eye, this seemed to check out. First off, it took Brandon Lacoff, Tim Davidson, and Gregg Skidmore nearly a month to claim their $252 million prize, and they only did so after lottery officials essentially waged a manhunt to find them. Second, they didn’t seem excited at all about their post-tax lump sum of $103 million. No smiles, no jazz hands, no chest bumps for the camera. Third, the guys all work for a firm called Belpointe Capital, an asset manager that, while it affords them the luxury of living in Fairfield County, is not at the point where it’s making everyone rich beyond the dreams of avarice or where the principals are in a position to be telling clients what’s what or failing to acquiesce to their demands, unconventional as they may be. Finally, a “person familiar with the matter” swore it was true. So most people chose to accept the theory and move on with their lives. The crack investigative team at the Stamford Advocate, however, decided this wasn’t over. Instead, they demanded to see a copy of the ticket, in addition to “passport and driver’s licenses of the winning trio and a photocopy of a check made out for $103,586,824 to a trust set up by Davidson, Lacoff, and Skidmore,” all of which they were able to obtain it under the Freedom Of Information Act, which was conceived with exactly this sort of matter of public importance in mind.

Upon viewing Davidson’s signatureprinted name on the above scan, despite being unclear what it proves exactly other than that he signed the ticket after the fact, one might be satisfied that three men did in fact pool 33, 33, and 34 cents each to buy that winning ticket. Like the Advocate, however, someone else is not yet finished here.

“Trust me, Brandon didn’t (expletive) win Powerball,” a person close to the purported winners said Tuesday. The person requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the situation.

At this point it’s 50/50 on which side to believe and clearly the work of this “person close to the purported winners” is not done. No, this thing is far from over. Next up: wiretaps, interrogations, and, it goes without saying, the original ticket is going to have to be dusted for prints.

On another note, let us be the first to suggest that the “person familiar to the purported winners” is so passionate about this case on account of being a disgruntled Belpointe colleague who was unwilling to part with the cool 25-cent piece it would’ve taken to make a four-way pot. Maybe.

Up next: wiretaps, interrogations, and, it goes without saying, the original ticket is going to have to be dusted for prints.

    If Stamford's journalists are as good as their bankers, they will definitely solve this case.

  2. HungryIntern says:

    Any reason the crack shot journalist did not ask for the video surveillance footage, from the store where the three amigos bought the ticket?

    • Mr. Blonde says:

      Store owner said they re-use tapes every 10-12 days. Footage long gone by the time they claimed the prize.

    The hippies finally got something right. Just kidding. But not really.

  4. Guest says:

    If anyone sees a new Zamboni 560AC with the license plate HVYHTR around the Stamford area please contact the Advocate.

  5. Guest says:

    I heard that it is an old $ dude in real estate who won.

    People with records are not technically allowed to win the lottery.

  44. I simply wanted to appreciate you yet again. I’m not certain the things that I might have implemented without those basics documented by you regarding such a field. Completely was a real daunting dilemma in my view, however , seeing your well-written manner you treated that forced me to cry over happiness. Extremely grateful for this assistance and then believe you realize what a great job that you’re providing training the mediocre ones using a site. Most probably you have never met all of us.

  52. kamagra says:

    There is noticeably a bundle to realize about this. I assume you created various good points in capabilities also.

  53. Hi would you kamagra mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  54. kamagra says:

    Is this kamagra apteka what you have already been looking for? An instant, simple and workable way for making money. In 7 mouse clicks and Forty seven mere seconds you can make 30k per month. Sounds as being similar to BS but hey, what do you have to lose? It is possible to have a look at the online video yourself and if you’re like me, you may at least get some beyond your box ideas to earn some serious cash on your own, or, with this particular method. Check the video out though…
