Scam

Alert message sent 05/03/2012 20:18:00
Information sent on behalf of Nottinghamshire Police
Dear Ladies and Gents.

It has been bought to my attention by a trusted community member that there is a scam postal lottery type competition going around the Arnold area.

The letters are saying that people have won so many millions of euros ofna european lottery and that before your millions can be sent to your bank they need your details.

Although most of you are probably say who would fall for that trust me a fair few do. Please alert your neighbours and family about this and tell them to rip the letters up.

Please especially tell your elderly friends and family as i am afraid to say it is them who often fall foul of these letters. One lady i dealt with had sent over a sum of £6,000 before she contacted the police.

Finally please encourage people to to sign up to the Nottinghamshire Alert system.
