Typo trips up raf­fle seller

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A Porirua mum sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets to lo­cal busi­nesses did not have in­sid­i­ous in­ten­tions – she had just made a typo.

Kapi- Mana News last week re­ported a news brief about a woman sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets in what ap­peared to be a scam.

Els­don busi­ness lunch bar owner Philip Le­ung won from one of her tick­ets but when he phoned the con­tact num­ber to claim his prize it turned out to be fake.

But Mr Le­ung says the woman apol­o­gised for the mis­un­der­stand­ing, claim­ing a digit from the con­tact num­ber was ac­ci­dently omit­ted.

Mr Le­ung has re­ceived his prize.

Mo­bile ma­nia: Mahina Ri­moni and Danny Samu with some of the old cell­phones given to Rus­sell School.
