When do the cheques get cashed? I forget. Is it the end of October?
20/10/2007 at 21:52

End Nov innit ? 

20/10/2007 at 21:54

No it's the 20th October Alex.

If you bequeathed and don't get a place, when do you know that you've been unsuccessful?

That soon ! Wow !

TT - I think you get a copy of the 'didn't get in' magazine in December but I can't quite recall.

Mine has been cashed, but then that is for a GFA place.

Mine has been cashed too, but then again it was made out to 'Victor Umbogo' and was the £15,000 pre-release fee I have to pay to get my $25,000,000 dollars from the Nigerian State Treasury.

I had a look around some other threads (and some older ones of last year). I think they cash them from 29Oct to 5Nov, something like that, with the bulk going out over the 30th/31st Oct. My obessional checking of statements online will soon begin then...

Ah, Autumn..........the leaves turning golden and falling off hte trees, the first Christmas adverts on TV, and the annual "has your  cheque been cashed" forum! 

Going on the pattern from the last few years.........

Successful ballot entries seem to have been cashed on the last Friday in October.  If it follows this year, then they'll be cashed this Friday (26th Oct).

Unsuccessful ballot entries that have bequeathed are cashed a few days later, so probably middle of next week (around 31st Oct).

Cheques cashed at any other time........no idea!

Unless of course they delay it all to allow for entries stuck in the post

Fingers crossed its this Friday, Ive got loads happening this friday and it would top it off if I seen the cheque come out.

I suspect yet another year of waiting and waiting to see a debit yet nothing in the end.

If you can't bear the waiting to see if your cheque goes out, why don't you bequeath?  That way you know it's going to get cashed!

Does anyone still bequeath after last years forum posts????

What, you mean the usual paranoid delusions about FLM cashing the cheques and not giving bequeathers entries?  Load of drivel! Loads of bequeathers do get places.

Personally I bequeath because I reckon there are less and less people bequeathing as you get more and more unsucessful entries, therefore if they divide the pile by the things on the outside of the envelope then me as a 4 times unsucessful bequeather will have more chance than I did as a 1 time unsucessful bequeather and possibly more chance than a 4 times unsucessful none-bequeather.  Even if that's not true, there's still the extra ballot for bequeathers...
