    'Brexit severance cheque' 9th Oct 17 at 3:13 PM
    I keep getting emails from a company called Agora finance advising me to claim for a 'Brexit severance cheque', they say it is genuine but i've got my doubts.
    Has anyone heard of this or even received one?

    I've yet to read of any get rich quick scams where the people running that scam state in their e-mails or letters that "This offer is not genuine and you are guaranteed to end up losing the money that you send to us".
