Imagine being so worried about greedy, gold-digging family members that you turn up to collect your lottery winnings dressed like a murderer from one of the most popular movie franchises in the world. That's exactly what a Jamaican man, who won a $158.4 million ($1.17 million USD) jackpot, did when he found out that he had won the national lottery. He waited nearly two months before finally coming forward to collect his earnings, Jamaica Star reported.

The man, who identified himself only as A. Campbell, fell sick as soon as he found out that he had won the Super Lotto in Jamaica back in November. He revealed to reporters that he is still shocked by his win and that he decided to disguise himself wearing the mask of the villain from the horror movie franchise Scream because he was afraid of money-hungry relatives.
