This Jamaican man knows the pain of the 'money-eying' relatives behind your back. According to Distractify, the man, who identified himself as A. Campbell on hearing the news of his lottery win, decided to come and collect the £1million bounty but only after having to shield himself from his relatives by going all incognito as he turned up at the event wearing a mask from the movie Scream. 

Reports also add that Mr. Campbell is said to have even waited for 54 days to come and claim his prize from the nation's Super Lotto, possibly because he wanted all the hypes surrounding the lottery to die down. 

'Normally, I would write down the numbers from the [televised] draw, eat and then go and check my numbers,' he said, taking to DailyMail.

'I looked at my ticket [that night] and ran into my bathroom and said: "I won! I won!''

'I want to get a nice house. I haven't found it yet, but I'll be looking for one soon. I like to handle money. I don't beg, I don't borrow.

'So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money. I have a little business, so I plan to make it bigger, buy an apartment. I love to have money’ he added.

Viral pictures from the event showing the man shaking hands with lottery executives and receiving the fat cheque while wearing the mask has become the latest talk of the internet.

Do you think the money-hungry relatives will eventually find out the man behind the Scream mask?
