Unclaimed Cash Prizes
My wife keeps getting letters from a company in Ross-On-Wye Herefordshire, called "The Unclaimed Cash Prizes UK" Another letter arrives every couple of weeks, although my wife has never entered a competition or prize draw with them.
The letter claims "We are holding a valuable prize that has already been allocated to you (minimum £25 cash, maximum £20,000 cash)..."
The letter asks for the recipient to make a £9+ premium rate telephone call (09061 581575), to find out what prize has supposedly been allocated.
This obviously does not make sense, if every £9+ phone caller is going to receive at least £25.
Is there any way of putting a stop to the activities of this bunch, e.g OFT, Trading Standards etc?
