Hi all, just received this in my inbox and wanted to warn everyone.
Obviousely it is impossible for such an email to be tracked let alone breach of Data Protection and collaboration from every single ISP!!! (Unless there was html and a web beacon)
If you get it just junk it.
Subject: Free flights
They got back to me within a week!!!!!!!! I contacted the London office - THIS IS REAL!!!!!!
Due to the SARS and the recent war in Iraq, the number of passengers flying world-wide has fallen dramatically. We at British Airways have launched an international media campaign which aims to fill our aircraft once again. As part of this campaign is direct email advertising. This is where YOU come in!
British Airways, along with Microsoft are tracking this email, and for every 5 people you forward this to, you will receive a flight to London return from any destination in the world (if your in the UK, you can fly to any Asian destination return). Send this email to 10 people and you are eligible to fly ANYWHERE in the world return to your departure point!
Simple as that!
However, that only catch is you MUST travel BEFORE 31st October 2003.
You will be contacted via email within 5 working days for your full contact and booking details. Note: one flight per person only.
