Agreed, I am surprised you needed to ask.

My guess it will either involve:

A long phone call (at £1.50 a minute) or.....

If you take the bait they will say "oh you need to pay £50 local tax", then if you are stupid enough to pay that they will say "you need to pay £150 administration fee" and if you are stupid enough to pay that it will be "you need to pay £500 for ....." and so it goes on.

They always start with a small amount, and if you pay that they come back with a larger amount, and it keeps going up till you realise you have been scammed and you never hear from them again.

Bin it

Delete the email or bin the letter. If someone wants to give you whopping great amounts of cash they will either knock on your door and give you the money or send you a cheque.,...or as some people like to see, the money deposited straight into their account.

If its conditional or they need to ask "Do you want?" then its not worth the paper its printed on or the email its written on.

forget about it and have a good day knowing that whoever sent you it didnt con you :thumbsup:
