This is a question Winning

I once won a gas boiler from The Guardian. Tell us about times you've won, and the excellent and/or crappy prizes you've lifted.

A friend of mine owned a large share in a condo by the beach, in a fabulously wealthy part of Los Angeles. They were selling the place, and to get top dollar on it, they needed as close to full occupancy in it as possible. So in a shady move, he and the other owners gave friends of friends cash to cover the of rent an apartment for 6 months. So me and some pals now had a great place to stay, walking distance to some fabulous nightlife, in a part of the city we could never normally afford.
The cost to them of rent to 20 people was considerably less than the difference it would make in the sale of this multi-million dollar apartment building.

Now - just to add to the fun.... When someone signed a lease, they were immediately entered in a draw to win a car.

Guess who won a Mercedes SLK 230 Convertible?

Me. The guy who was being paid to live there.

Justice in the world? Not in this case, but for once I wasn't the one being shafted.
