SMS Lottery 2

(You know how sometimes a huge coincidence happens that almost makes you believe there’s some higher power at work? Well, I received this text as I was posting the scan of the newspaper article. *Cue Twilight Zone theme*)

Hello,
 
I received a text claiming that I’ve won 950,000 GBP and in my excitement spat hot miso soup all over my cat. I’ve just returned from the vet and the visit cost me $160. They say his fur will grow back, but in the meantime he will have to suffer the indignation of having a massive bald spot on his back at such a young age. His fellow cats who he ordinarily plays with are already excluding him from the group, my guess is that he’s now not “cool” enough to associate with them anymore. And as for gaining the affection of any of the local lady cats, forget it! If I was a cat I wouldn’t want him as a mate. I would fear that our babies would grow with skin and fur deformations.
 
Because of all this I’m wondering if 950,000 is really going to compensate the pain and suffering poor Mr Meowy has to endure. I’ll make a deal with you – increase the prize to 1.5 million and you’ve got a deal.
 
Sincerely,
Marlene

Hi,
 
I’ve decided to take you up on your prize. Please be aware that I’m still not happy about what happened to poor Mr Meowy, but I managed to find an old toupe that sort of matched his fur and have glued it to his back. He seems much happier now, and keeps meowing loudly to let me know he loves it.
 
Here are my details:
 
FULL NAME: Marlene Jennifer Jason Leigh Hildebrandt

AGE: 32

MARITAL STATUS: Widow 4 times over. (I swear it’s just a
coincidence.)

PHYSICAL ADDRESS/POSTAL ADDRESS: GPO box 2176, Canberra, ACT 2601

NATIONALITY: Half Danish, half German, half Swedish

OCCUPATION: I make calendars with pictures of kittens in hats

PHONE NUMBERS: (02) 6249 6299

FAX NUMBER: What is this, the 1980s?

REFERENCE NUMBER: DT92i
 
I have converted the currency and worked out that the prize comes to AU$1,477,250.92. I would like to request this be delivered to me in 1,477,250 $1 coins, as I wish to fill my swimming pool with them instead of water so I can literally swim in my wealth. You can keep the 92 cents as a token of my appreciation.
 
Kind regards,
Marlene
