You’re a winner

Jessy’s got an article about suckers and naive elderlies (there’s a difference?) who are scammed by the “You have won a prize” brigade. It’s funny that just the other day I received an offer from Which? magazine (who conducted the survey in the BBC report in Jessy’s article) saying I had already passed two important stages in the process of selection and I had to put some stickers on some letters to claim one of three cars, or £300,000, or something. I just threw them away.

    The advice that they gave on the TV programme is that don’t give money for bigger money! “If it is too good to be true, it probably is!” I remember this is one of the Murphy’s Law too! It is really worrying that there are people actually falling into the trap when we all can SEE IT.
