My fate in your hands
Well, I get spam and I get the following from an Italian T-shirt seller - check out the website below. What I'd really like to know is if this is a variation on the Nigerian scam. I've italicised
particularly glaring language errors which make me think that this isn't halal
. But then, it is, unfortunately, conceivable that 'Mrs.Mary Anderson'didn't pass her English language GCSE, or whatever 'O'levels are called now.
Not being a gambler, never having entered a lottery, scratched a card and very rarely bought a raffle ticket (except for worthy causes) I'd love to know if good fortune really runs in threes. I'm up to two in the past four weeks.
Has anyone else received something similar?
