Cash 4 Gold letter to prankster becomes viral hit

UPDATE 9:40 a.m.--The the letter that looked like it was sent by Cash 4 Gold appears to be a fake. The subject of the letter, "Mr. Haberny," is actually an artist who designed the letter. On his website, Haberny lists the letter as an example of his work.

ORIGINAL --A man who repeatedly sent gold-painted rocks to Cash 4 Gold was reportedly issued a letter from the company demanding that he not contact them any more.

“We find it truly unfortunate that you do not understand the concept of ‘Do Not Contact Us Again,” the letter said.

The prankster reportedly asked for over $1 million from Cash 4 Gold, and then called the company several times asking for the money, demanding that the cost of postage be reimbursed and describing in colorful language how he found the “gold nuggets.”

The man also made several offensive claims to the company’s telemarketers, such as asking that the deceased Ed McMahon (a former Cash 4 Gold spokesman) host his birthday party at McDonalds.

The letter to the man from Cash 4 Gold has shown up online, and become a viral hit.
