Wah... don't you think that I am lucky?? Let me see, with 1,000,000 GBP, what should I do with it? First, I will give 70% away for charity. After all, I don't think I need that much unsolicited money. I prefer to earn my own money. With the remaining 30%, I will give 10% to the sender from Switzerland. Oh... I will reward the Barristerterry or whoever who can't even spell "Alert" correctly. That person needs to go to school at least to learn how to spell. Let's see, I think he needs at least 10% for a good education in UK, since that person is obviously not a UK residence.
Aiya, just realised that Mrs Gonzalo also cannot write proper English. So, she also need 10% of my winning. Ummmm... I think my win is now well spent. I have 0% left. Since this is a windfall, I shouldn't keep anything as I have been taught never to keep anything that I did not even invest a single cent!
I think I have motivated myself today.. hahahaha. This is the most beautiful Sunday!

ooop... since I am going to get 0% after all the above, I will reply and tell the Wood Gate of my intention and let him handle all my winning. I don't want to be hit by any Wooden Gate.

p/s: Just done a Google search on the serial number and to my surprise, it looks like the number never change. So, this win has been reused. Oh, I think the sender is a bunch of Nigerians, probably from Lagos. Con man! Watch out! Only the mind of the most simplistic would believe them.

What an idiot. Unauthorized email yet you think you will get money. How much is your IQ-Level?

William said...

Anonymous, if you are talking about me, I think you don't understand English. If you are referring to those who really got themselves conned, I agree with you to a certain level. I don't think their IQs are low nor are they idiot. They are simply desperate to win something in their life but forgot that one cannot have something out of nothing!

Olá ,Eu acabei de receber esse e-mail também e confesso que talvez meu QI não seja tão alto porque a príncipio fiquei digamos que curiosa, mas assim que entrei com o nome do remetente no google,encontrei seu blog e, poxa que pena , não sou uma ganhadora de todo esse dinheiro, mas confesso que faria muita coisa com ele.. mas isso eu deixo para outra visita. Valeu pela informação, um abraço ! www.marciabia.blogspot.com

William -sorry man, you better get half the winnings back, because I also won this lottery. I got kinda suspicious, the poorly worded email didnt ring too true, so I googled and found your explanation. Now I know its all legit. I want my share. (big grin)

William said...

Bunny: Ya, kind of regret now. I should keep 50% of the win! hahaha...
