Subject: RE: BS: All the Scams Aren't in Nigeria
Today I had a call I might easily have fallen for. The caller said "This is Matthew calling back in regard to the government-funded insulation - lagging you've had installed up in your loft area?" [presumably a question as the intonation went up at the end]. The accent sounded like south-east England, maybe someone who grew up on a London overspill estate. It was totally convincing apart from the fact that my loft insulation has been there for about 40 years and has no connection with any government scheme.
