Coincidences

We've all heard stories about massive coincidences but in the last hour I've experienced one which I think is up there with the best of them. It's hard to believe but I swear it's 100% true.

Can anyone beat this?

An hour or so ago I was checking my bank balance online. I noticed a deposit of £100 credit yesterday which I wasn't expecting and didn't recognise. It said it was from a Mrs. J. C***. Now, it's an unusual name (I believe it's Scottish) and I had a nagging feeling that I recognised it but couldn't think where from.

I called my bank and asked if they could give any more information on it. They said it was from a Mrs. June C*** and it was from an RBS account. It was about this time I put on my face as I then remembered that I did actually know a Mrs. June C***, but we hadn't spoken for 7 years (we had met her and her hubby on a cruise way back in 2011 but drifted apart after a couple of phone calls, as is the way with holiday friendships) and there was no way she would have my bank details anyway. I told him I did actually know a June C*** but said it couldn't possibly be from her for the reasons stated.

Anyway, I remembered that I still had a number for them in my phone. I didn't even know if it was still the right number but I called it anyway. Sure enough, June answered the phone. I told her who I was but she didn't know me until I reminded her of a couple of things on the cruise (me and her hubby won the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire quiz on the ship ).

After exchanging niceties I said 'I bet you're wondering why I'm ringing you out of the blue, after 7 years?' She said 'yes, I was wondering'. I said 'well yesterday, I had some unexpected money put into my bank'. She went quiet for a second or two then asked 'it wasn't £100 was it?' I said that it was. She said 'your surname isn't B***** is it?' I said that it was.

Anyway, to cut a long story short (I know it's a bit late now ) she had called her bank yesterday to send a payment of £100 to a friend. When her friend hadn't got it today she called the bank to find out why. It turns out, when checking through it, that the bank had entered 1 digit wrong in the account number, so it had been sent to the wrong account. That account being mine

I have just looked on Google and the last figures I can find say that there were 80 million bank accounts in the UK, so if my maths are correct, that makes it a 80 million-to-one chance of this happening.

Maybe I'm bigging the coincidence up but I just think it's absolutely incredible the way this has happened.

What do you reckon?

Probably - they're desperate for news, they keep publishing the same recycled tosh about Katie Price.

Worth £50 I reckon, that. Incredible coincidence though!
So what you spending it on?!

Scottish? Unique? It's gotta be Mrs CheeseAndMacaroniPie.... Scotland's the only place I've ever seen one of them.

But then you've gotta factor in that you knew the person too... not only knew them, but painted them naked, had your wicked way with, and then saved her from drowning in freezing waters... I'd say the odds are still far, far longer than you think...
