Yesterday I received an official looking letter, which purported to be congratulating me on winning a fabulous prize of 700,000 euros in a Spanish lottery. Too good to be true as the saying goes. For a nanosecond or two it almost seemed worth calling the so called ‘claims agent’ to tell them I want my dosh, and they have my permission to send me the cheque – but a quick google shattered my quasi dream of sudden wealth.

This scam has been pursued via Email as well as by letter, though in the Email version the prize is less fabulous.

Oh well, back to work on Monday.
