have received this email - it first began circulating back in 2003.

I can well remember speaking to a very harrassed and fed-up policewoman at Cambridgeshire police - they answered every call back then. At the time the theory was that the hoax was perpetrated by someone with a grudge against Cambridgeshire police - no shortage of people who fit that bill, I imagine.

I had one the other day about my "transaction" with SpanisheShop . com and the account which had been set up for me...:-)

Another that went straight into the Thunderbird Junk folder.
