STAFF at First Choice Holidays, in Honiton, have warned people not to be taken in by offers of big sums of money.A spokesman for the High Street travel agent said they had had a number of people in recently to request money to be sent by Western Union to gain access to hundreds of thousands of pounds in prize money.She said: "These requests seem to come in swarms. We had one man in asking us to send £450 to allow him to claim £975,000."We are aware of the scam in the shop but some people are being taken in by it."They are told they have to do it through Western Union because the people at the other end can get it out and there is no trace afterwards.
