Imagine my surprise one morning this week when I received a txt message announcing the best news of all. It arrived at 6:07 am and was all in capital letters, so I knew it must be important. Rather than paraphrase my good news, I thought I’d share it all word for word:
CONGRATE:YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS WON 500,000 GBP CRICKET MOBILE AWARD 2012. TO CLAIM YOUR PRIZE SEND UR EMAIL & NAME TO JOHN BY EMAIL: email@example.comGosh, what a clever little mobile phone I have! I had no idea my phone even played cricket, let alone was good enough to receive such a grandiose award. What do they say about dark horses (or old red mobile phones)?
Have you been as fortunate as me recently? Or are you still sitting ready and waiting with your bank details for when your Nigerian scam email arrives?
