    my mum got a weird phone call the other day from an automated voice message, saying;

    "if you're (my mums full name) then press 1"

    so she pressed 1 and then it said, key in your date of birth, so she put the phone down.

    she was wondering if it was some sort of scam??

    I got mine yesterday...the enveolpe wasnt even sealed and the letter looked like it was hanging out the envelope :shock:

    The letter has personal details on it...NI number etc :x

    The idiots who allowed such thing to happen should be searching the tips I think.....

    Tell your mum to check her bill because sometimes when a call asks you to press a number it reverses the charges!!!! Its a well known scam. If she rings her telephone provider and gives them the date it happened and a rough time they can check her calls for that day and make sure she wasn't charged for it.
