    Just received a email saying I have won a £1000 Boots voucher from a survey. The address is on behalf of Prenilla and there is a link to claim my prize. Sound suspicious anyone think? There is boots adverts and everything on bottom of email, don't mean anything I know but the email looks pretty good!

    A link? sound suspicious, did you complete a survey firstly?

    If you did and are still unsure ask boots on twitter to have a look and screen shot it to them.

    "Contest" and "sweepstakes" are often terms used by scammers and there are rarely if ever £1,000 prizes for surveys (but a £1,000 is common with the scammers).

    I got that one too. I have done surveys to win Boots vouchers but none of them were in Sweden - look at the grey small print at the end for an address. Definitely suspicious.
