Simple things like renting a house/apartment in another town to live in for a week or a month before collecting, registering a new telephone number, perhaps now even signing up for new dummy email address, for folks to contact you, and never living there or using those after you win, will help to stay anonymous.

Not sure why people claim the money so quickly. I rarely check tickets I've bought within a month or two of the purchase date. I guess the thought of possibly winning is better than knowing that I wasted those few dollars on it, but also that nothing much would really change (other than a new laptop and camera).
