Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

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

  1. I was out having a nice few drinks at the local bar last night listening to regular alco's ranting on about nothing, when one of them came out with the following story that "allegedly " happened in the Uk a while back.

    A guy places a advertisment in the newspaper giving his name and addresse and saying that if you send him one pound he will tell you how to be a millionaire.

    So after recieving everyones pound coins he then sends everyone a letter back saying "put an advertisment in the newspaper"

    The guy supposdly made thousands and never got done for it as it wasnt classed as false advertising.

    I was just wondering if anyone else heard this before and if theres any truth to it.
  2. Check out the ads in Private Eye, its full of those type of ads ;)
