I'm Rich!

I learned yesterday that I have just won the sum of Four hundred and fifteen thousand Euro in in a sweepstake conducted by Euro Million Espana S.L as part of their first international promotion program. My name was one of the names entered in the program by "their international marketing department in conjunction with world residential white and yellow pages, humanitarian organizations(!) and the help of chambers of commerce of countries worldwide".

Due to "some mix-up of participants family names", I must contact my claims agent Mr. Steffan Kamler, transfer manager of Deutch Sol Agency by completing a release form and faxing it to him along with proof of my identity. The deadline for this is September 30, 2005 after which my winnings will be returned to the Spanish Economic Ministry. The release form ofcourse asks for some simple details like my full address and my bank account details for a "swift bank transfer".

Guess I'm all set for retirement now :-)

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real income.
It gets down to choose a proper partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
