Residents in Lincolnshire continue to receive ‘scam’ letters purportedly from all over the world telling them that they have won/inherited a sum of money but need to send money first or follow instructions via e-mail. The most recent involves letters claiming to be from a bank in Hong Kong stating that the recipient is entitled to a claim to funds from a deceased relative. This letter and others of a similar content are SCAMS. Please don’t respond to the e-mail address in the letter or send any money. IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT PROBABLY IS!!
