Mark Zuckerberg is giving me prizes!

Wow! A short while ago I talked about useless spam ending up in my mailbox. Today, I’m happy to say that quite the opposite has happened. Facebook’s own Mark Zuckerberg contacted me! And guess what? I won an iPad and an iPhone!

I’m feeling pretty lucky right now, because I’d never won anything like that before. Well, I once won a free scratch card by getting three times “Free Scratch Card” in another scratch card. It was a complex scheme, but worked out quite well in the end.

This is pretty exciting, so let me share a bit more about exactly how I found out that I’d won.

So I opened my mailbox to find this letter there:

It’s quite flattering to be called “Dear” by Mark Zuckerberg himself! I felt we were bonding already and I hadn’t even opened the letter yet. He also avoided calling me by my real name, to show that he’s sensitive about privacy. Then I proceeded to open the letter:

You may find it a bit suspicious that Mark Zuckerberg uses Hotmail and also has a cryptic email address that doesn’t have anything to do with his name. But, if you think about it, it all makes perfect sense. Can you imagine how much spam he’d get if his address was something obvious like “mark.zuckerberg@facebook.com”?

Concise and to the point! At first he briefly introduced himself. I, of course, knew who he was, but there are many people out there who’d never even heard his name. Then he went on to describe my prize. Apparently Facebook has a partnership with “Apple company”, which I assume is the same as “Apple”, or at least a branch of it. I was one of the randomly selected people who were fortunate enough to have been randomly selected! It’s a lot to take in at first, but it’s a fantastic feeling!

There was a “CLICK HERE” link in the email. I won’t paste it here, because I don’t want any of you claiming my iPad and iPhone. Sorry, I hope you understand.

When I clicked the link my computer suddenly shut down. I was afraid at first. You hear things about viruses and hackers and such like. However, when the computer started up again I’d discovered that I now had a few really cool screensavers with Pokemon characters. Also, my browser had three new toolbars, which displayed all sorts of free offers and discounts.

How cool is that? Mark Zuckerberg is not only going to send me an iPhone and an iPad, but he also installed some uber cool software on my computer. Best thing of all is: I didn’t pay a single cent for any of it!

OK, gotta go, my computer wants to restart again for some strange reason…

    Lucky you!  You’ve got bragging rights to be a name dropper. “Mark Zuckerberg” no less. You must feel like the teacher’s pet.  Now that you’ve clicked that link, many more might be getting free stuff soon.  I’m so jealous you got a Pokemon screensaver.  You and Mark doing lunch soon?  I’ll bet it’s free.  :)) @NestExpressed

    •  @BakedAlaskaInOr  I’ll definitely keep you posted on the Zuckerberg lunch soon. I’ve been waiting for that iPhone and iPad for a while now, but I’m sure he was just too busy arranging the perfect lunch date for us, so he’s a bit distracted. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you won’t try to steal my Pokemon screensavers, which are lately the only thing my computer wants to run…

  3. I’m waiting for my dear uncle in South Africa to pass, then I’ll be able to afford an iPad. Some of us aren’t lucky enough to be on the Mark Zuckerberg gravy train.
