Thank you, Globe Telecom!!

I just received a special letter (sent over by LBC) over the weekend. When I opened it and read it, I thought it was a bogus letter! Another one of those misleading letters! So – the ‘complainant’ in me decided to give DTI a call to inquire and report on the fraudulent-ness of the letter.

I first called Globe Telecom to inquire – and as expected, I was told that the letter and the promo was indeed fraudulent.

I then called DTI and was told by the operator, that the DTI Permit number was not found. This made me more curious! I was then passed to the Promos department, my call was answered by a certain Rose , without asking the nature of the letter – she immediately told me ‘Basta kapag may letter, VALID na po yan’ How the hell did she know?! She didn’t even ask me for the DTI Permit number! So I insisted – amazingly – it was VALID! She then sounded eager to put the phone down – but I still questions. She was really reluctant to answer them. Luckily – I got her name! She told me a few details like the promo was from a Globe prepaid promo and adviced me to call the number on the letter.

I finally got to talk to Bianca (the undersigned) and she informed me that INDEED, I won a Nokia 2630!! 🙂 Cool right? It gets better! Since I am one of the winners – I have an option to win myself 100 units of Nokia 2630 – but the raffle will be done using a tambiolo with 10,000 balls – out of the 10,000 balls, there is only ONE ball that says that I’ve won 100 units of Nokia 2630. The other was called a consolation prize, meaning – I won’t need to pick a ball from the tambiolo – by waiving the right to join the ‘tambiolo’ contest, they will be giving me another Nokia 2630 phone! So all in all, I will be bagging 2 units of Nokia 2630!! Yehaaaaaa!!!

My choice was easy – it was getting the 2 phones immediately! I mean, my chances are very slim (even if I’m lucky) with the ‘10,000-balls’ pick the winning ball thingie right?! Bianca said that she will call me back to inform me when to pick-up the prizes! 🙂 Yehaaaaaaa!! 🙂

So there…

Thanks Globe Telecom! For picking my entry! 🙂

    Now I know what they say about being lucky in raffles and being unlucky in love isn’t true. You’re lucky at both. Congratulations!
