Heads up, compers! In order to investigate a technical issue, we've had to move some of the older threads from Game Over into a new category called 'Game Over Archives'. It'll be comps from before 2017, so shouldn't have too much impact on your day-to-day Forum experience. Thanks for your patience!

£50 Inside Soap win, how to claim / is it a scam?

So apparently I won £50 from the crossword in Inside Soap magazine. I had an email from their junior editor telling me I had won, and that they need my updated phone number (which I had already included in my entry), and then I would receive an email from HSBC with how to claim via Paypal or BACS.

Well, I replied with my phone number again, and it's been over a week and had no email from HSBC or even a response back from the junior editor.

Starting to feel like this was a scam... Has anyone had this before?
