Now, I don't like to pick holes in other peoples emails, after all, Mike from the call-centre could have been a bit rushed when he hastily threw this email together (after all, its only regarding 2.5 billion dollars!!!). Maybe Mike from the call-centre didn't write it! Maybe it was Mr Antony Moore who is “intimating” me of a very important message.
Well, no matter, whoever it was has clearly never heard of a spell-checker because I am “completelty ready” to have the money released to me when I cough up the $255 dollars, oh, hang on, its only $195 now, I’m pretty sure it was $255 “ealier”! I think I’ll settle on $195 dollars instead, one wouldn’t want to waste money, would one!
Time is clearly of the essence; because I would dread that Mr Peter Desmond beat me to it and that he “pay this fee that authomatically” would make him the owner of the “hugh” amount of money!
Well, Ive just filled in my details and emailed it back to all of the specified mail addresses, but I’m not sure why they need my sex and “ocuupation”! Do they think I intend to continue working once I receive my 2.5 billion dollar entitlement? Surely not!
I didn’t want them to think that I was “treuly” no more by not replying within 5 working days, oh hang on, its 7 working days now! Oh well, nothing like getting in early!
Right, I’m off to tell my boss to stick his job up his arse; that I hate him; that I wished he had never been born; and that I am now in the process of buying my own, small, Caribbean island with my 2.5 billion dollar entitlement!!
