Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Mrs. Kitty Anderson

Folks, there will not be an article today on Tech–for Everyone.. and it is quite possible that I may never write another article ever again. I may just retire.

Now before you go getting all ‘het up’, and cross with me, I want you to ask yourself if maybe you wouldn’t retire too.. if you were me. Understand, I’m rich now. See? This e-mail from Mrs. Anderson proves it:

BRITISH NATIONAL LOTTERY LONDON, UK.
PRICE AWARD DEPARTMENT.
Ref: UK/0274K82/10
Batch: 172/104/ZY370
We the Board and Management of the British National Lottery happily announce to you the draw (#251) of the British National Lottery.. claim a total sum of £1,000,000 (ONE
MILLION POUNDS) in cash credited…

I am not exactly sure how much real money a million “pounds” works out to be.. but I’m thinking it is a pretty good sum, and I’m hoping it is enough to buy myself a tropical island somewhere in the Pacific.. Because I think that would be pretty neat. Me. Palm trees. Sandy beaches. Sunshine.

I have sent my vital information, and winning reference number to Mr.Hillary Martins (The Foreign Service Manager) as the e-mail instructed me to do.. and now I am simply waiting for them to deposit the money into my account.
Once that happens, I’m pretty sure I’ll be out of here.. because that’s gotta be a lot of money.

In fact, I think it’s enough money that I’m willing to overlook the “PRICE AWARD”. (I know they meant “prize”. They’re probably just as excited and happy as I am..) I’ve never been a millionaire before.. this is so cool!

  1. Hey Paul,

    Thanks for a very timely warning.

    Just this week, here in Toronto, 3 people have been scammed out of thousands of dollars on Internet scams.

    If it’s too good to be true, well it’s ……
