I can't decide what I like best about this email that was pushed summarily into my spam box. What a good thing that I check the box from time to time!

I particularly like that Mrs. Williston (cough) explains the reason for the $200 payment with such clarity. I also like that a photo id as well as name, phone number, address, etc. etc. are required to get the parcel. (I'm a bit surprised that they haven't asked for a social security number and/or bank password!)

I can't wait til my bank draft arrives!! Or is it a parcel AND a bank draft? :whee:

If I got something like this I'd be so disappointed that I didn't have the $200 to spare.... :lalala:
