Yesterday I got a letter from Reader’s Digest, notifying me that I will be getting a contest form with chance to win big money soon. Here’s some excerps from the letter:
“When people receive a Contest invitation from Reader’s Digest, they often decide to throw it away…. Some people, like Mr Tan of Selangor, let their Contest invitation sit around until time runs out… a mistake that cost him an opportunity to win as much as RM200,000. (details changed to preserve his anonymity) [snicker… yeah right!]
While many of your neighbours will look in their letterboxes in vain, you have already been fortunate enough to clear two of the three stages that there are to becoming a winner in our RM700,000 Mega Contest. As an Astro customer, you’ll be having an opportunity to win loads [loads?] of big [I’d like my money in regular sizes please. Big money can’t fit in my wallet], easy money [alarm bells going off].”
Okay, I just want to check with all of you, especially those of you who are Astro (Malaysian satellite TV provider) subscribers:
1) I bet you received the SAME letter right?
2) Do you intend to join?
3) Anyone joined a Reader’s Digest contest before? What did you have to buy in order to qualify?
