I have won !!!!

6 Jun

Dear Readers,

I have won the lottery. What else can I say.. I am so ecstatic. I got a mail on my gmail account telling me that I was a winner. What makes it even more special is that its from the U.K NATIONAL LOTTERY HEADQUARTERS. It must be some “poorva janmada punya” (previous life’s good deed) that has made them choose me.

Life for me will be the usual and you will not see any drastic changes. Please see the copies of the letter below:

Β 

I have also prepared an acceptance letter addressed to “Helen Anderson” the person who sent me this wonderful mail.

Dear Ms. Anderson,

This is fantastic. I feel lucky to have been chosen from among millions of people. What a great honor. The last time something this exciting happened to me was when I had a tooth extracted and mistakenly kicked the dentist.

This win could not have come at a better time for me. The recent fuel hike has created a severe dent in my finances. Your 500,000 Pound Sterling will ensure that my car will run for a few months more.

I am also extremely happy that I have won in Category “D”.. (D must mean Dunces).

At this time I like to thank my agent Mr. Pinket Griphin… we like to call him Pinkie.

I am also glad to find out that the UK National Lottery uses a Hotmail account. Its a great way of showing support to the free email community.

I will contact Pinkie with all my details. I wish I could fly out there and collect my prize immediately…but then with fuel costs and all, I request your representative to come here so that the money can be handed over with cermony and pomp.
Sorry running short of time, I have to call this guy who has a bridge he wants to sell. Plus theres a Nigerian gentleman willing to pay me millions to stash his money for him.

Once again I thank you, my family thanks you, so do the stray dogs in front of my house. Long live the Queen (Radio Gaga). Please do contact me with more of your wonderful schemes. I am sure that the readers of this Blog would love to participate as well.

Sincerely
Vijay
(Grand Prize Winner)

    Did you sent it? hilarious !!!!
    There are people who were duped in Bangalore. A house wife received sucha mail and she replied with her account number. they asked her to trasfer some money as charges and she did. She lost her money and the only thing she got was a 4 sentence news in TOI.

    You lucky dog Vijay. Boy o boy, with 500,000 pounds sterling (why don’t keyboards have pounds signs any more? Maybe because they’re designed by microsoft?) you’ll be able to afford a one bedroom apartment in London Central, or a bed-sitter in inner-Sydney. Bloody hell, and you didn’t even buy a ticket!

    WOW! Vijay, I guess that is the end of blogging for you 😦
    Maaaan. You are lucky. All I get is an invitation from Nigeria where I am sure their money is worth even less than my dollar. Some people have ALL the luck in the world. Anyway, don’t forget your old blogging and High School friends. πŸ˜‰

    well well well!
    hmm.. lot of non-computer-like-people-who-use-only-for-emails-to-keep-in-touch-with-their-loved-ones fall into such traps and giving their details away, thinking such emails are for real.

    Replace Anderson with Lloyd and Griphin with Bledsoe and one would think I was looking at my Inbox! Took inspiration from you and send a somewhat similar mail in reply. Good blog.
