Fraud. Not sure how though.

Look at the e-mail :-

1. seems to be a reputable brand and why would they send out an e-m ail to undisclosed-recipients.

2. They say you'll earn the money tax free. I don't think that the Revenue would accept that.

3. They talk about bookmakers. That is illegal in many countries including the United States. Margins on bookmaking are very small and are typically a few percent, but they are paying ten percent commission. No reputable business would do that.

4. The phone number is London and I'll ring it later.

One out of five!

Important Notes :-

1. Whatever you do, do not respond to any e-mail like this. If you have given bank details to any fraudster like this, then inform your bank immediately and also make sure that you close the account.

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from,, etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to, etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.
