Sir George - I have to warn you! It's a trap! All they're after, is your precise monthly income!!
It's a new stunt by HMR&C to catch you in an unguarded moment, and find out just how much you've been lying on your tax returns!!
If you fill this in and reply, you'll be issued with a new, revised tax bill!! Don't do it under any circumstances!! :suspect:

a Check of $1.5,000,000.00

Bugger, could have been a cheque instead. Still, there's the free beamer.

Cheques still do exist? Haven't seen one in the last 30 years or so. Paper is so old fashioned it might just become fashionable again ;)

Actually the "check" bit is about all they got right. As they were claiming they were an American company/lottery then that is the correct spelling. North America uses check instead of cheque.

If you ever do win the lotto, and want to give it away to random people on the internet, it'll take forever to get someone to reply to your free money offer :)

Cheques still do exist?

Sure do and I am quite pleased they are. Although I've retired from full time dealing I still dabble a bit and sell odds and ends on the internet. Although most clients want to pay by Paypal, a few (usually older) prefer cheques, and I'm happy to take them, as 100% of the amount goes into my account*, whereas Paypal etc all take a percentage.

*(Wouldnt apply if I still had a business account as the banks hammer businesses with charges for paying in cheques)

What makes me chortle is #10 in the list of required information - "monthly income"!
What does it matter what your monthly income is if you really had won umpty billion beonzoes?
They must think everybody is as 'kin thick as they are!

Keep them waiting until they offer you a 2015 model BMW - the 2014 model is just so yesterday.

$1.5,000,000.00

I'm still trying to figure out just how much money that is.

If it is one and a half million dollars it should be shown as $1.5 million dollars or $1,500,000.00

But, $1.5,000,000.00 could be one billion, five hundred million dollars or $1,500,000,000.00

So, overall I’d say this is a rip off.

Shocked I am, totally shocked.

:p
