lots of this happening lads anything involving a ukash card is fake! i fell for this for a loan had to pay 27 quid paid it then nothing looked into it and then saw logic why would any reputable company ask for a pre paid card or voucher, most have the facility to accept cards and or cheques both of which can be traced and refunded if any wrong doing happens be careful people.

I had a very similar email but for Manchester. Asking for £40 instead of £45 though. Looked into ukash, its untraceable if you give someone the voucher code. Certain scam. Anywhere that has required a further CRB has offered to pay for it themselves.
