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?
o yes live;
from lagos nigeria.
my name hear is pseudonymous,
every other guy uses it..ehh?
but you look down and you ll
see my real name;
actually i ve got nothing to hide;
may soon update my profile.
i think i'm beginning to like this.
i hated blogging
and all hype about adsense
but that cocacola letter is about to....
i think its a recru.... clue.
thanks very much for the cares.
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 ....
now i think i ll have to post my letter for the public to see.
somebody ll need to inform those dumb guys at cocacola what mavellous job i have these 2 days done for them.
you can't believe this
last night i stumbled upon COKES official website which i suspect is coke.com
the only philanthropic project i saw was a bore hole sunk in a village in India and some body s trying to tell me of 250,000GBP
here is the e mail:
