My Scam-o-Meter was in the same room when I read this. It wasnít even switched on but it still blew up. Evil or Very Mad

Still, itís nice to see that not all scam attempts have achieved a degree of plausibility.

I think the real clincher is the suggestion that Owners Direct have a Customer Services Team. Rolling Eyes

They are certainly persistent; I've had this e-mail every day (sometimes twice) for about a week.

Was that in the 50's when you new them?

I was a Disc Jockey at Butlins Filey in the mid-70's (1 night a week) just before it closed down and 2 nights at Beckers in Filey. Scotch week (Glasgow week) could be challenging! Very Happy
