If you get a letter through the post saying from someone in China saying that a relative of your has died and you are now going to receive squillions of dollars, bin it. The police say there have been a lot of them around at the moment in the area. I got one yesterday in a brown envelope with a Leeds postmark from Christopher Wong!!!

Obviously a wong'un! Still, binning it at alerting people was a good idea. Thanks.

It seems that a lot of peole in Cookham have been sent these letters in the last week and some people are being taken in by them. Do let neighbours know that they are a scam if they receive one.
