Many of us fantasize about receiving a large sum of money unexpectedly. This is the very fantasy that sends people to the grocery store for lottery tickets.

But it's not just a fantasy. Situations do arise when people who are not necessarily experienced in dealing with money find themselves on the receiving end of a financial windfall.

Central Standard's Cash Money Crew visited the KCUR studios to offer practical advice to people unexpectedly inheriting large sums, selling off valuable assets, and yes, maybe even winning the lottery, helping to tailor the fantasy with a firm grasp on reality.

One never knows.
