A travel agent played a spectacular prank on a guy who lost his ID outside their premises this week.

Will Armstrong shared the joke on Twitter, revealing he lost his driving licence when he was "pretty drunk" and later received a letter from a local travel agents, Flight Centre, in the UK.

The documents contained an itinerary for a luxury trip to the Maldives including first class flights from December 1 with Etihad Airways via Abu Dhabi to the Maldives and back.

There was also a letter addressed to "Lord George William Armstrong" which stated, "Thank you so much for popping in the other day.  We certainly appreciate your business and hope your [sic] beginning to get excited about your upcoming first class flight to the Maldives!"

"Please keep in mind, balance is due in full on Friday, November 10th at 12.05pm."

The "balance due" was a whopping £5,289.87.

However, another letter revealed it was a prank carried out by Steve who works at Flight Centre.

It read, "George, We're just kidding :) we've found you're [sic] driving license (enclosed) outside our shop and thought you might need it!  Just amke sure you consider us for your next holiday.  Take care!"

Will shared the prank on Twitter and took a selfie with Steve, the genius prankster and PR extraordinaire.

Several people expressed their suspicion over the prank given the letter is addressed to "George Armstrong" but the name on the driving licence is William George Armstrong.
