Live in the UK?....we should talk $$$$
    #3930273 - 03/17/05 02:01 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Ok, Hi, my name is josh. I live near New Orleans Louisiana US. A few months ago I was looking through a british car magazine and I found this scratch off ticket for a contest being held by the magazine. there are two tickets one for a car give away, the other for money. When I scratched them off, I won the grand prize on the car one...(either, a BMW X5, 8k home improvements, euro disney holiday, or a Round the world cruise. The second tickey I scratched off was for money... I matched three symbols meaning that I win anywhere from 200 pounds to 50,000 pounds...you have to call to claim your prizes, then you find out which prize you won...here's the catch, you have to be a UK resident to win. I'm not a UK resident...the deadline is VERY SOON as in March 31st by noon. I don't know why I didn't do this before...but I really am trying to find someone who will get the info from the ticket, call the number and claim the prize. I will then send the ticket through overnight shipping, and I will SPLIT the prize with whoever helps me. All this will require is making the call which cost a little bit of money...worst case scenario, it's a scam (but it was in a major mag) if it's a scam I'll reemburse who ever calls the number...I'm very much vulnerable in this situation I just want someone to be honest and I'll split what ever we get...think about it...one phone call for 25,000 pounds and half of what ever we sell the BMW for...sounds like deal to me...so if anyone can help....PM me ASAP I really want to get this done. Thank you sooo much.


P.S...if we win big...you bet your ass I'm flying over there and we are going to trip balls for about 3 days....lol

please help a fellow shromerite!

thank you
Josh

Yeah he wins the grand prize AND the money...  The chances of that are so miniscule :smile:

What magazine is it?

yeah don't know how to type those...lol...hey it's a chance that will have to be taken...and I don't know what mag it was...I found it at work (I work at a bookstore). look don't come down on me please...I'm just trying to see this thing through...the call is 1.50 (enter british curreny symbol) I know it sounds really fishy...when I told my dad he didn't think it was legit either... truthfully I don't even know if I would..but seriously it look pretty convincing...they went through alot of trouble to get 1.50 if that's the case. and like I said...I'll reemburse anybody who does this win or not...what do you have to lose other than like 1.50 and a phone call. there is also a text message option if you don't want to call, but I don't know how quick that would be.

Don't bother with it mate, these scratchcards are everywhere. I get them in my magazines and I always win the 'top prize' with them. Just don't bother, it's a scam.

Yeah you always win on those scratch cards. You have you spend about 5 minutes on the phone to them, which racks up quite a phone bill.

Do American keyboards have the pound (?) sign on? Here in the UK it's above the 3... we've got the dollar above 4.

No worries. The reason they have the call charges so high is because thats how they make the money. They spend ages talking to you on the phone to rack up the charge.

They keep you on the phone for ages - it's all automated.

If you've seen the Simpsons episode where Homer calls the football tips hotline, you'll have a pretty good idea why the calls last so long :smile:
