Has anyone received a letter titled 'Unclaimed Prize Register', PO Box 107,
Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, HR9 9YP, offering various freebies, including a
cheque for �20,000, a plasma TV, a Sony digital camcorder etc etc.

Out of interest, I sent a claim by letter as the phone option was �1.50 per
minute with a maximum time of 6 minutes, thus �9. I have now received a
claim code for a digital camera, requesting a payment of �6.50, stating 'do
not send payment at this time'. I realise that this is some sort of scam,
but how does it work. Any digital camera must be worth �6.50.

Did we see at least 3 scams there, did we children?
Todays lesson was brought to you by the word SCAM, the letter S and the
number 3.

It's probably one of those 100k pixel matchbox size things - of little
practical use to anyone. As someone else said in this topic, if it's a
prize you've won, why do you have to pay anything for it. Everyone sending
my letter probably gets offered the same thing, and you can best the
organisers have paid considerably less than �6.50 for the cameras.
Au Res.,
