Silas Eichenberger became a Facebook fan of Professor Tell just three weeks ago. „When a friend of mine liked one of the items on Professor Tell’s Facebook profile, I clicked on it and became a fan, too,“ recalls Silas. It proved to be a wise decision since the polygraph apprentice is now the winner of October’s gold bullion coin. Although Silas has never shot with a real crossbow, the nineteen-year-old loved playing with a toy crossbow complete with rubber-suction arrows as a child. He has no plans to sell the gold coin but intends to keep it as an investment in a little wooden case behind glass. „I will definitely tell my family and friends about my good fortune and that it really pays off to become a Facebook fan of Professor Tell.“

Professor Tell will be giving away another gold coin in November. Become one of his Facebook fans and make the most of your chance to win!

Markus Röösli, winner of July’s gold bullion coin from our very own Professor Tell, once had a beard very much like Tell’s and had also already shot with a crossbow. “My father had a miniature crossbow at home. He would let us shoot with it every once in a while,” the online editor from Zurich said. Markus happened upon Professor Tell by chance while searching for contests online and in social networks. “I studied at the same university as TRANSLATION-PROBST Ltd. CEO Roman Probst so I knew of TRANSLATION-PROBST Ltd. and was a Facebook fan of Professor Tell.” Becoming a fan has really paid off for him, and Markus already knows what he is going to do with his gold coin. “When I was a child, I was given a gold coin by my godfather. That’s why I now want to give my prize to my goddaughter.”

If Markus wants to, he can thank Professor Tell in person in the near future by visiting TRANSLATION-PROBST Ltd.’s stand at SuisseEMEX’11. “Thanks to free tickets from TRANSLATION-PROBST Ltd., I can even do it for free,” the happy winner laughed.
