I have received a few of Gavin Wallace mails telling me that I have won a prize. This went to Barclays Bank to James Harper and from him to Adi Bruise. I am asked to pay $940 pounds inorder to retrieve my prize. Thank you for sending this letter with his address and all. I even received calls from Adi Bruise the Account Officer as he claimed himself to be of the Barclays Bank asking me to send the money so that they could transfer my prize to my new account.

I am wondering if these men can be taken to task!!
