Oooh lucky you. How much do you have to send to release the payment?

Cfaz49 Tue 27-Oct-20 12:12:14

Oh dear, what a shame! You should have claimed 2 weeks from the date of the letter!grin

Forward it on to 10 Downing Street. They need a lot of money not to pay for free meals for kids

The letter in picture was lifted from google, exact same wording on mine even the same lucky numbers smile

"YORK’S ‘World Cup Lottery’ winner Simon Proctor has received a copy of a cheque for £725,000 - along with an apparent request for him to pay £7,250 before he can receive the real thing."

I've still got my email from Christine Lagarde, no less informing me that while the IMF were investing irregularities at a Nigerian bank my name came up.
I don't know what surprised me most: that Christine Lagarde was writing to me or that they'd found irregularities at a Nigerian bank.😱

Amazing what you can win when you haven't entered.

I had one once. Send 9.00 pounds to release the money. I sent the letter back with a note. Send the winnings. I will donate 9.00 pounds to charity

Sending you an actual physical letter, how quaintly old fashioned. grin

My mil had one of those once and she told them to take it out of her winnings and send her the balance!
