This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

I owed the Royal Bank of Scotland around £6k
I'd moved house a couple of times and I guess they'd lost track of me. Being a dodgy student type I'd not bothered getting official places to live and just rented people's spare rooms, cash in hand, so I wasn't on the electoral role.

Anyway, I wake up one day to find an envelope with a cheque in it for around £350, with a post it note saying "Please find enclosed a cheque for £350". Thinking it might be some kind of trap (to find out who I banked with/if that really was me) I toddled down the the Money Shop and got it cashed. Quids in!
