What hassle would there be for you? You would only have to pay the money and thats it.

Pay the money to who?
I'm not keen on the idea of giving my money to somebody I don't know. Everybody on here is just a cybername (no disrespect intended) and I don't know anybody well enough to hand over my hard earned cash to them. :roll:

Ermmmmmm, let me think about it :whistling:
Thought about it :thumbsup:
NO chance, soz :giggle:

Personally I don't play the lottery, but I think syndicates on a forum are often a better idea than how it ends up playing out. It's tough enough doing one in the office or between some friends (always seem that someone is chasing someone for payment) never mind online with all the extra hassle and trust needed. It also flirts quite closely with the forum rules against group buys so I'd have to think about it if you did get a group together that wanted to do it.

p.s. Not to be all negative or anything! It's nice to see people thinking about things to do as a community

I was just thinkin, say £1 a week or summit small like that. And if we win, think of all the hot deals we could buy!!!
if it was just a tenner, keep it in the kitty to pay for the next lot of numbers!

At least I bothered to reply to your post :whistling:
Anyway,
Bump. :thumbsup:

PayPal most likely. Perhaps a paypal account could be setup for HUKD. I dunno

Paypal fees are 3.4% and 20p :whistling:

Nice idea but it can cause more problems than they're worth from my experience.

Syndicates are very easy to get drawn into but a nightmare to get out of. The fear of "the syndicate" winning the week after one has left it means that you really need to commit for life ! ( Well the life of the syndicate anyway )

There's always some idiot who doesn't pay on time and consequently someone else has to chase them.

Actually the list of pitfalls is very long, you don't need me to carry on and on.

Respect to the OP though who asked for opinions and the above is only mine.
