ta-warned dad-he's the sort of person would be fooled !

no doubt a few people will click - see £££ signs and all common sense goes out of the window:thumbsup:

you mean the bad grammar and spelling didn't tip you off? you had to check the "from" field?! :oops:

You'd have to be a greedy idiot to fall for this.

Its different to the usual "you have won millions" as £500 isnt that much, so you think maybe it is real, but im not a lucky person and if something seems too good to be true it usually is, shame could have done with £500 though, lol. I was posting so people wouldnt fall for it as not everyone checks for bad spelling and grammar, especially first thing in the morning, I know I didnt.

...it should be a huge clue that they are not Abbey National anymore.
