Postal scams are not a new concept but people still get taken in by them. Probably because the first words you see will likely be “You’ve Won”, and then the thought that this one just might not be a scam and no-one wants to miss out. The scammers will always ask for money; if not in the original letter then they will ask at a later stage.
This is great for the scammer, they get money for doing virtually nothing. Just imagine if they got £1 for 100 people replying they get £100; I think you will get the idea. The thing to remember is if you haven’t entered anything like that how can you win. I doubt that anyone would give away thousands of pounds at random and to so many people too.
There is only one thing to do with these scams and that is BIN IT!!
