Since 2012, so still learning
We've had that one this week and also one saying we'd won the postcode lottery, even though we're not in it.

"They' keep trying.

On and off for many years.
An neighbour has just been round as "Jim Smith" just asked her to buy some itunes vouchers for him and explained how to rub off the code, take a photo and text it to him. I told her it was a scam but she was worried as the local Minister has the name "Jim Smith" and to start with she really did think it was from him.

Easy to see why people get conned. If the scammer had asked for a smaller amount (say £20 or £50 - he asked for £300) I think she would have done it.

I have advised her to notify the police.
