I have just been contacted at work from someone claiming to be from Compeiru Research. The girl claimed to be working on behalf of Everton FC and wanted to ask me questions about the proposed move to Kirby.
She claimed that building work will start in 2008 (which instantly aroused my suspicion) and proceeded to ask questions about my job, income etc. After refusing to answer any of these she read out some upbeat (but unbelievable) script about how the stadium will be world class etc. She concluded by saying my name will be entered into a draw etc.
This must be a scam but I wonder how she obtained my work details. Has anyone else out there been contacted?

But I can help, I have my own private investigation company who specialises in the area of telephone fraud.
I can look into it for you if you want. I just need some further details from you. If you could just send your address, bank account number and sort code, date of birth, mothers maiden name, favourite colour and first pets name to ’Honest Lee’s Investigation Services, Great Yarmouth, PO Box 9043’, I’ll get straight onto it.
