Is this a scam?

Had this email today. Iím pretty sure itís a scam as it mentions paying postage for the test (yes, I did foolishly click on the link , but no further and gave no further private info)

Also, itís riddled with spelling mistakes. Even the senders address (I always click on that) was credible.

One to watch out for I suspect.

Blimey, quick of the mark aren't they

The grammar alone is a red flag

Factually incorrect + poor grammar + poor layout = scam.

Very well probably as they are booked in a Concierge Suite at a top hotel quaffing champagne and living the life of Riley. Probably their only worry is if the Ferrari gets scratched.

It's either a scam or Boris wrote the letter himself, the grammar and layout are as you say appallingly bad.

Any thread which asks if something is a scam is always about a scam!
