Please see below a note I have received from PC le Pla our local Police officer
I have been contacted by a local resident who received a letter purporting to be from a Chinese bank about a possible relative who has died leaving $ 18.5 million. As you would expect, they wanted him to get in touch with them and open a bank account etc.
THIS IS A SCAM!!!! Unfortunately, it is a common one.
Please send out alerts, warning people of this.
I will inform Trading Standards of this.
