Every once in a while an FPLer does something that reminds us that people can be quite decent. When Richard noticed he had been paid both his, and his neighbours share of last Saturday’s £1000 win, he got in touch to pay it back!
Out of five possible winners on the main draw, two claimed and Richard from Nottingham was due to split the £1,000 prize with one of his neighbours. Except FPL Ashley had a few too many sherries and accidentally made both PayPal transactions to Richard! It wasn’t until we received an urgent note from Richard one night that we realised the error. He promptly refunded the money so we could send it out again to the other claimant.
Some people might have kept the money, or at least thought about it, and who could blame them? Money is tight for many people at the best of times, never mind at Christmas when there is so much pressure to purchase the perfect present and spend a fortune on food for the family. This is part of the reason we’re here. To give something back, for free.
Richard said he doesn’t really consider himself a lucky person as he has never won anything before and is going to spend his money on Christmas presents – what a lovely festive period his friends and family are going to have!
We are amazed for Richard’s honesty and applaud his integrity. What a gent.
Thank you Richard!
