Original Stardust Chip

Post by Uys »

Hi, I'm new to this forum. My father and my name appear on the chips sent with Stardust. D J Uys and W Uys. This is very strange because we did not submit them, someone could off submitted it without us knowing or there is someone out there with the same initials and surname, the other thing is that it’s one and then the other as if it was submitted together. Is there someone on this forum with the same initials and surname that has a brother, father, mother or sister with the same initials and surname, or does someone knows these people? Please help

Cheers

W Uys

Hi W Uys,

I have three sons. My name and all three of my son's names are on the first list, with correct last name. All of our names except Rick are on the second list with correct last name. We did not send any names in. This has to be just a coincidence of someone else with the same name.

Perhaps the same in your case.

Hi There,

If it was not for this post, I would not have remembered I submitted my name way back when and found my name on the second chip!

Thanks for the post!

Howie
