Spam Email doing the rounds - advance warning....

  User-367759E1-9114-481F-B005EBD0DB666035 14:57 23 Jun 2003

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.

And once again people will be taken in by this obvious con.

Have you told BA and/or BT?

This isn't really a con - its just a chain letter. Anyone taken it will not loose anything as they just have to forward it on to 5 people.

Just delete it.

I know about this e-mail, it was blocked by spam software.
