Would it be cheaper to fly to Disneyland? Isn't that closer to Vancouver?

Sounds like someone doesn't want to meet the fah family eh

And yes, Disneyland is cheaper but I/we wanted to go somewhere we haven't been before. I'm starting to think that Europe would be cheaper

Olivia has written back again:

Quote:
Dear David Howell Evans,

Compliments of the day to you,

Regarding you email to us on the delivery of your winning fund.


You are to contact the accredited courier company in charge of the delivery of your winning parcel with the below contact.

Royal Mail Delivery Company.
Contact Person; Mr. Walter C. Brown
Address:Suite 1,Mil brook Business Centre,Floats Road Round thorn Industrial Estate,
Manchester M23 9YJ UNITED KINGDOM.
Fax: {44} 700 5921 287
Tel: {44} 701 1128 390
{44} 701 1128 630
Email: inforoyalmaildelivery@yahoo.co.uk

You are to follow all instructions given to you by the courier company for safe delivery to your destination.

Note that your winning fund of £450,000.00.(Four hundred and fifty thousand pounds) was given out in cheque along side original copy of this certificate, together with a covering document (Money Laundering protection and Letter of Affidavit for Claims) from the British government stating that the money was obtained legally through their National Lotto .

You are to add your Order No: SH231282, Full names and your delivery destination to the email you will be sending to the courier company.

Please do send me update me with your dealings with the courier company.

Regards,
DISPATCH OFFICER IN CHARGE OF CLAIMS
UK PAYMENT CENTRE.
Ms. Olivia Bakers.
"Please do send me update me with your dealings with the courier company." Please do send me update me? She does not seem to have a great command of the English language .

Poor Olivia still hasn't appeared to figure out her last name . But it appears that we will soon be meeting a new character - Mr. Walter C. Brown! Aren't you excited? I know I am. I can't wait to give my compliments of the day to him

Quote:
Dear Mr. Walter C. Brown,

Compliments of the day to you! Well it is late at night here in Ireland, so compliments of the late night to you, ha ha.

Ms. Olivia Bakes (or Bakers, she seems to spell her last name differently, haven't figured that out yet) has instructed me to write to you.

It is regading my winning of the UK National Lottery in the amount of £450,000.00. I'm so excited!

The order number is Order No: SH231282. She asked that I give you my full name: David Howell Evans (but you can call me Redge!)

I travel frequently (most recently to France), so the delivery destination is a little tricky at the moment. Earlier Olivia mentioned something about a bank account transfer. This would probably be easier.

How long have you been in the courier business? Is it interesting?

I work in the music business. It is a very competitive business, so the lottery money will be very helpful. I have a joint venture going on with 3 other partners at the moment. I think one of my business partners wants his hands on the lottery money though! He has a huuuuuuuuuuge ego (I think this may be in part due to his small stature - it's always the short ones, isn't it?).

This is partly the reason why I am hesitant to give a physical delivery address (we often travel together due to our work) and I don't want shorty to see that I got a check!

I look forward to hearing from you soon, as Olivia said she would like updates on my dealings with your courier company (I hope Olivia does not bother you like my short, bespectacled friend bothers me ; ).

Sincerely,
Redge (David Howell Evans)

I talked to a guy on the phone today who was completely convinced he won the UK lottery and was planning on all the things he would do with the money. He filled out all the information, sent them copies of his license and passport, and didn't think anything of winning a lottery he'd never played until they asked him for $145 for the courier service. At least he didn't go for the wiring option; he wanted to open a new account to deposit the check and make sure it was legit, but I told him based on the UK lottery part of the story we would have refused to deposit the check.

I had a practial tonight. After last week, it would have been nice to at least get a break from the stress of testing! The pastry class I'm in now is only a 3 week course so we have a practical every Friday night. Include last week and that's 4 weeks in a row of testing. At least the 3 practicals from this class are small and not a huge presentation like last week's.

Kelly - I'm enjoying your lottery story immensely. Keep me posted

Maddy got to see Pirates3 today with her friends. Ditched my ass. Maybe I'll get to see it before it hits Blockbuster (I missed Pirates2 in the theater).

Hope you continue doing well in class arw9797. I just wish I could sample your stuff

someday soon....I'm going to be a pastry chef in the southwest eventually.

I wish I could mail the stuff out! I have so much stuff in my fridge & freezer that I'm tossing some of it out this weekend I think my family has officially had their fill of bakery for a while!

I could not donate it due to liability issues. If I give it away to people I don't know and then they get sick, it can get ugly. Instead of saying they got it from me, it would end up that they got food from a student at my school and the school is producing bad food and lawsuits could happen. There's issues surrounding that right now from another one of our locations. So in theory it's a great idea and one that's been suggested to a lot of us many times, but we can't.

Dear Walter (may I call you Walter?)

I am delighted to read your mail. Please call me Redge, by the way .

I would prefer the fastest delivery method possible, however I have a few concerns. 347 GBP sounds like an awful lot of money to mail a check. Why is the fee so high?

My friend Larry says I should be wary. Larry is always wary, of everything. He is one of my business partners. It is always a little disheartening having a business partner like that, but in this instance I find his wariness even more disturbing. Shouldn't he be happy for me, winning the UK lottery? Wanker.

Please, please contact me as soon as possible! I hope to prove Larry wrong. I hope that this is a legitimate offer. I can't wait to tell Larry to stuff it. Of course I may have to be careful, Larry does "hit things for a living." His words, not mine.

Anyway, can you tell me more about this lottery? Do you know of any other winners that I might contact that you have dealt with before? I would like to speak with one of them. Once I have your assurance, I will gladly give you my phone number and address.

Sincerely,
Redge
