Dear Dr. Aston
Thank you so much for sending me a Final Notice that I was a big winner in a lottery that I've never heard of. Or ever received a First Notice for.
Imagine my shock and when I heard that I had won without ever buying a ticket for this lottery! I must be the luckiest person alive! This is like waking up and finding a new car in my driveway with no idea how it got there, or waking to find that George W. Bush is President and having no idea why anyone with normal mental faculties would vote for him -- twice!
I look forward to my winnings. Please send them to me as soon as pigs learn to fly.
PS. Your grasp of the Queen's English, particularly capitalization, is amazing!
