Last weeks $400 million lottery winner is still choosing to remain anonymous and he or she may have good reason to do so. Here's the story of one recent winner who's now calling his fortune a bit of a curse.
CNN's John Berman reports.
"Wild" Willie Seeley won hearts across America when he and his co-workers won big in last month's $450 million Powerball jackpot.
Each member of the group, affectionately dubbed the "Ocean's 16," took home almost $4 million dollars each.
But now, just weeks later, Willie says he's miserable. He told NBC News it's non stop drama and his wife even called the Powerball win a curse.
Seely says he's being overwhelmed with calls ranging from long-lost relatives to tv executives asking him to star in reality shows.
"There are days I wish we were back to just getting paid every two weeks. You have to change your whole way of life, but we didn't want to change the way we lived. We liked the way we lived."

So what's the problem? No CHARITY will take your money. What a douche nozzle.
I will gladly take the curse of money off your hands...currently I am dealing with the curse of being homeless
Hope things improve for your family and you all are able to better deal your new found fame and fortune. Give each day to the Lord!:)
It seems to me that given the current state of society in general that certain privacy laws protecting state jackpot winners are in order. Why is it everyones business if someone happens to win?
Amen to that! This is a private matter!
Mr. & Mrs. Seeley, sorry to hear how miserable your lives are now. I'd be more than happy to take that "curse" off your hands.
Aww poor boo boo. Take a moment and look outside of yourself and the overwhelming pressuring of having the money to eat, buy clothes, go almost anywhere and do almost anything and consider donating a little to others who may find your curse a slice of heaven. If your curse can simply be managed by shutting off the phone, then I would trade that with you any day because I have a similar curse: creditors calling. So to that end, I do understand. Not.
