    an e mail stating that my address has won a coca cola award of 250,000 pounds this morning got me crash-landed here,
    to make an inquiry as to weather a company as reputable as coca cola could allow their name
    to be used in such an absurd extent.
    i'm framing my question in this form because i have never been lucky to win lotteries i participated in not to talk of a one i did not subscribe to.
    nothing good comes this way and i know i can not be wrong in my suspicions.

    has any body in this house received this type of letter?
    how did you responded to it?
    is coca cola sharing their resources in this reckless manner actually?

    Listen to your commonsense.
    It has told you all you need to know about that letter that appears to have come from Coca Cola.

    Why would Coca Cola pay anything in POUNDS?

    I guess that's why you can find "common sense" on the oxymoron list ....
