I didn’t even know I was in the running!!!!! My email account have been picked!!! This is one of those surprises in life that catches you completely off-guard. I can’t believe I won!!!!!!! Naturally, I sent off all of my information instantly after receiving this email tonight.

I think things are going to be a lot different around the old Petch House from now on. How did the Beijing Organising Committee find me???!!!! It must be an act of God!

Thank you BOCOG!!

You released your special file number to the general public so I used it to contact them and the one million is now in my account. Sorry you didn't follow the rules. (I had them put it in the account with all the millions I got from Nigeria last year.)

kathy from nj is putting you on. I got this e-mail last week, and am already planning a world cruise with the million dollars I claimed. Like you, I can't believe how lucky I am.

Greg said...

Well isn't my face red. Here, I thought Kathy was serious and had already claimed my $1,000,000. Boy do I feel silly. Thanks for pointing this out to me. I never would have figured it out.

You are sooooo lucky. Congratulations! I wonder why they didn't ask for your bank account number? All the ones that I have won want my bank account information. Maybe you should fly out and claim your prize in person. It could be a great vacation; I hear the 'fishing' is great this time of the year.

LOL Those are great huh? I notice that when I open those messages, suddenly 5 more show up in my inbox. They're tracking us all. >:O

Jennifer said...

Wow! Congratulations! I say you should pick it up in person... you don't want any of these ne'er-do-wells getting to it first. Don't forget to bring your bank account information... in fact, I would bring a print out of all of your credit info, just to make sure the transfer is smooth.

Ha! I just had a picture of myself walking around Beijing with a Chinese/English dictionary in one hand and all of my personal information in the other asking passers-by where I could find the head office of the "Beijing Organising Committee".
