    This was doing the rounds in early December on Facebook as £85. I was astonished to find my wife clicked and shared it.

    For the life of me I cannot understand why people fall for these scams, bother to share or open them. Just stop stop and think for 10 seconds; would Aldi really give away £125? That's three weeks shopping there for our household. Was I expecting an email from HMRC? Does the bank ever email me?

    One has to be daft to even think of clicking........I've little sympathy for those who fall for scams.

    Mrs D got one from Tesco this morning.
    Now the Aldi one was obviously a scam but Tesco? They wouldn't resort to that would they? Should I click on it :blush:

    Is Bill Gates still offering $100 for every email you send him so he can "Test the system"?

    I am afraid not, one's tenant farmer brings it to the scullery door, where one's chef carefully selects choice ingredients.
