    they just sent me one last week also.. bu I just closed it and spammed it. But i was a fool and sent them my account number, and swift code. I declare in the name of Jesus that these scam artist will be dealt with for their wrong doings. In Jesus name.

    I also received one! Tried to call the number on the letter but couldn't get through. I gave them the details that they asked for on the letter. Will they be able to do anything with the details that I gave them? :(

    To the right person with the right know-how, yes, the requested information is enough to steal your identity. That's what put me on guard when I read the letter my husband got; that and the imperfect English. If the letter really did come from a legitimate British company, the English within would have been perfect (no grammatical errors/omitted articles).

    They changed it a little bit, jos got a new look a like today!  

  7. # Anonymous Anonymous

    They changed it a bit and they don't include Catherine Brenner's photo anymore. The bad grammar and the fact that I won a boatload of money in a non-existing contest was a dead giveaway, so I spammed and deleted. I don't know how people fall for things like that. =/
