What a lot of rubbish. As usual this scammer has a phone number. As usual, if you are daft enough to ring the phone will be answered. As usual neither the Police nor the mobile phone companies have any interesting in tracing the phone. That’s why these scammers continue. Because they know they can. They know that no-one is interested in tracing them. Mobile phones are perfectly traceable these days. These scams will continue unless, or until, the Police and phone companies get together to stop them. These are not victimless crimes, they are big business. (End of rant for today)
Yes – this is a scam. Don’t reply. Delete the email.
