Who Want To Be A Major Fraud!

Wed Apr 23, 2003 4:32 am

Anyone else what the programme about the scam to win 1m GBP on Monday night.
The funniest bit i thought was the first ad break where the first ad was for cough medicine.
Stroke of genius
Having said that, and watching it closely it is very apparent that they were going for it. I think the damming evidence were the two guys on theFFF row who didnt clap. THey had it sussed already

Great prog.

Brilliant programme, damning evidence.

*Cough* *Cough* No!!!!!!  Big grin I think that part was just too much, they quite clearly got carried away, as evident by the row the the man and woman had in the dressing room afterwards.

Well it is worth bearing in mind that the sound we heard was isolated coughing and not the original sound, even the Court agreed with that.

But LOL, they could so easily have gotten away with it had they been a little bit smarter.

Had they stopped at 125K they would have probably got away with it. The wife, Diana?? looks as hard as nails. She gave the whole thing away in my opinion. She couldn't even look genuinely surprised at the end.

Tecwin Whittock should have been sent to jail for a long long time. Not for cheating, but for having such a STUPID NAME.

Did anyone hear the recording of ITV phoning him telling him that they would not give him the money? I must say, the major didn't have a surprised tone in his voice.

I agree, that phone call was VERY strange.. just to say i refute that. is a bit of an understatement, i would have gone ballistic, and his wife is VERY scary!!!!

I saw the show as it would have been broadcast on ITV2 and the coughing was still quite distinctive.
