I am not sure if this is real as I got it from forwarded mails.

To those experts out there, whom might find this useful, please, by all means go give it a try…

…when you go to Famous Amos Café, Bangsar

This is a true story
My daughter and I had just finished a muffin at
Famous Amos Café in Bangsar & decided to
have some cookies. Because both of us are such
a cookie lovers, we decided to try the “Hawaiian
Nut Cookie”.

It was so excellent that I asked if they would give
me the recipe and the waitress said with a small
frown “I’m afraid cannot”. Well I said, “Would you
let me buy the recipe?”

With a cute smile, she said “YES”. I asked how
much and she responded, “only two fifty, it’s a
great deal!” I said with approval, “Just add it to my

Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement
from Famous Amos and it was RM285.00. I
looked again and remembered I had only spent
RM9.95 for two muffins and about RM20.00 for a
pie. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement, it
said, “cookie recipe – RM250.00”. That’s

I called the Famous Amos’s Accounting Dept. and
told them that the waitress said it was “two-fifty”,
which clearly does not mean “two hundred and fifty
dollars” by any POSSIBLE interpretation of the
phrase. Famous Amos refused to budge.. They
would not refund my money, because according to
them, “What the waitress told you is not our
problem. You have already seen the recipe – we
absolutely will not refund your money at this point.”

I explain to her the criminal statues which govern
fraud in Malaysia. I threatened to refer them to
police for engaging in fraud. I was basically
told, “Do what you want, we don’t care, and we’re
not refunding your money.” I waited for a moment,
thinking of how I could get even, or even try to get
any of my money back. I just said, “Okay, you
people got my RM2-50.00, and now I’m going to
have a RM250.00 worth of fun.”
I told her that I was going to see to it that every
cookie lover in Malaysia with an email account
has a RM250.00 cookie recipe from Famous
Amos…for free… She replied, “I wish you wouldn’t
do this” I said, “Well you should have thought of
that before you stole from me”, and slammed
down the phone on her.

So, here it is!!! Please, please please pass it on
to everyone you can possibly think of. I paid
RM250.00 dollars for this…I don’t want Famous
Amos to ever get another cent off of this recipe…..
