Video - Great-grandmother victim to group of fraudsters who attempted to steal cash - by mailing more than £1M worth of ‘prizes’

Have your say

Callous crooks bombarded 84-year-old Evelyn Pedersen with countless official-looking letters claiming she has as much as £1m worth of prize money – every DAY.

One suspicious letters even told Evelyn she had won £5000 and needed to collect it from a man called ‘Gerald Lee’ on platform two of her local train station. Evelyn, from Worthing, West Sussex, said: “The letter asked me to arrive at 10.30am to be presented with my prize. “I was going to go – I’m glad that I didn’t, I don’t know what could have happened.”
