Buffalo, NY (PressExposure) September 25, 2008 -- âAntoine usually opens the mail so it was kind of unusual when he didnât open the certified letter from DirectBuy,â said Kandice. âWhen I told him weâd won $50,000 he said âyeah, rightâ. Iâve got to admit, I didnât believe it at first but am so happy itâs for real.â
