Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm in the money big time!!.. Would any of my fellow ARRSEurs be available as my proxy to collect my winnings [ for which a generous commission would be paid ] so that I can arrange a trip to the UK and a party for the ARRSE community can be provided for.. I figure the total winnings will more than cover the bar tab at any downmarket pub

    How novel. One of the worlds biggest, most successful and most protective of its brand equity Corporations appears to have a limited command of the Queens English?

    Still, if we're talking cash collections? A mate of mine is the widow of the late Minister for Oil in Nigeria. A lovely Christian woman. Trouble is, she has $50,000,000 stashed away and she cant get it out the country, poor girl.

    She'll cut you in for 20% if she can whack it into your UK bank account.

    All I need are your full bank details and PIN.

    PM me?
  4. Call him the UK or email him in Hong Kong.

    If you need any ADVISE, just shout.

    People like you make the world a better place, you really do. We'll be in touch.

    Nice to see Pepsi are engaging with the 'Yoof' by using a trendy Yahoo email account? Damned clever that.

    Sorry chaps. Couldnt help myself...

  8. " Please you are adviced to complete ..."

    I admit I was taken a bit aback by Mr. Alfred Duncan's unusual grammatical constructions in places, but I chalked it up to his excitement at finding me a winner and not engaging spellcheck when I didn't even know I was entered in the contest..

    Just shows you how invasive the internet is where anyone can have their e-mail address plucked from the ether and then given millions...

    Still, he seems to be an honest man, even going so far as to tell Pepsi employees not to even try and get their hands on company money earmaked for people like me.

    Still, I am reluctant to just sendoff my info and hope that the cheque is in the mail [ or do they do electronic transfers these days ].. I really should get ahold of the Pepsi head office in the US and see if I can collect the money a little closer to home and perhaps in US greenbacks [ what with the exchange rates and all ]

    He does claim to be licenced by the Brit Government and all..some gaming commission of some sort.. so must be legit, right???
  9. I just read in the Business Section of the local fishwrap that Pepsico is launching a new Diet Pepsi called Diet Pepsi Max that will contain none of the harmful calories but extra caffeine and ginseng!!

    It all makes sensed, this lottery contest is to help prom,ote the new product launch.. Guess I'll have to go and buy a case and practising smiling for the cameras.. sure there will be an offer for me to be spokesperson for the new brand launch after me winning big...

  10. Do keep us updated with the replies.

    Wonder if you can get him to provide evidence that he is really honest? You know the sort of thing - picture of him carrying a bible or something.
