Hey there Teripie! How goes it? Are you anticipatorily waiting the posting or updates of the pallet winners?

Don't let NightGhost convince you that you need an intervention, involving chocolate syrup. IT'S A TRAP!!!!

I do hope they respond soon, this is wearing me down. I feel.. nervous and jumpy. My stomach does flip flops every time I see or think about the money. Last night I dreamed that the FBI showed up at my door asking about the money that I had "stolen" from Woot.com. I tried to explain what had happened but they didn't believe me and said they had video of me stealing the money from the woot warehouse. This being a dream, I then had to go on this big adventure to prove my innocence. Silly dreams.



I'm intrigued... you must tell us more of this big adventure! lol

It was a vivid dream -- but it's long & complicated. Are you sure you want to hear it?

I92837780A
I92837xxxx

The whole situation is very bizarre. I just can't see someone "accidentally" putting that amount of cash into a box to be shipped to a customer and if it were some co-worker trying to prank someone by sticking their money in a box, that's just plain sadistic.

It would also be super cool if it wasn't a mistake and this will just add to the mystery and glory of the Banger of Corn. Then people would be hoping for a letter or a pile of mula!

Oh! I hadn't noticed that, but you are correct!
The Serial #s are

I92837779A
I92837780A

The $20's are non-sequential, though.

I'm starting to think the bag of cash is not intentional. If it truly were from Woot, I think they would have responded to the letter of inquiry already. Something along the lines of, "Congratulations! You're our jackpot winner!" Or something like that.

Okay, I heard back from WOOT customer service. It was short and curt, to wit:

Woot does not/would not send out cash in a Bowl of Cereal.
Evan



Ooookay... I'm not sure they read the whole email -- you know, the part where I tell them it likely an accident and belongs to someone who works there.

Well. I'm going to hold on to it and not spend it for 30 days, just in case it turns out it really DOES belong to someone there. After that, it's REALLY mine.

Edit to add: I'm guessing they think I am full of Crap -- but I'm not. I bet if they listened to me and actually ASKED around, they'd find that this DOES belong to someone.

Maybe Woot didn't put it in there. Maybe someone at FedEx or the USPS did. Maybe someone was trying to hide their stash and didn't get it back before your box left.

That's an odd response. I would agree with you that woot does not believe you.

Nice hoax if this was your idea. I'm not saying I don't believe you.

Thanks for the heads up tater, you know I noticed a modified sig the other day too.....But, you know I put in the (and forever counting) part so I would only have to update it once a day. Which, I did earlier today, and then cursed NightGhost got another stinking bacon rasher in the middle of the morning!!! I am never going to come anywhere close to this guy!

But, hopefully this appeases Thunder, and it will reflect well for me with the woot! gods.

Ok, looked into it and have been told that our guy has said our response is the only comment we want to make on the subject, i.e.: we do not send out money at all and this is not from us. No one in the warehouse/anywhere is missing any cash and we have no idea why there would be money in your Bowl of Cereal if indeed there was as we did not put it there.

So, now my question would be -- where in the location of the box was the envelope? Was it in the middle of things, or along an edge? Was there any possible way it could have been placed in there by another source on its long journey to you? (Maybe at its vacation home in New Berlin?)

Very, very interesting. So, now do we shun wootAndTheWay for trying to dupe us or believe that "someone" along the journey of the box "some how" got that money in there?

I'm starting to wonder if the mysterious envelope of cash is in any way related to a certain entry that was found on two of the phones.
