GETTING a letter through the post promising a cheque for £9,000 sounds too good to be true. And virtually every time, it will be. Our snapper Krishan Bhungar was sent just such correspondence in the office last week. The only thing that stood between him

GETTING a letter through the post promising a cheque for £9,000 sounds too good to be true.

And virtually every time, it will be.

Our snapper Krishan Bhungar was sent just such correspondence in the office last week.

The only thing that stood between him and the said nine grand was sending £19.95 to the Toronto-based company.

Hmm, can anyone else hear alarm bells?

He told me: "Obviously I didn't proceed.

"But there are people out there, like the vulnerable or elderly, who may be duped.

"Hopefully this will warn them not to be easily led, especially at this time of year when we're all still paying off Christmas." Wise words indeed.
