I just received this email; I am either dumbstruck by M&S’ email server capabilities, or our stupidity:
Thought this might be useful with Christmas coming up…Marks & Spencer, in conjunction with Persimmon Homes, are giving away free vouchers.
Marks & Spencer’s are trying word-of-mouth advertising to introduce its products and the reward you receive for advertising for them is free non-refundable vouchers to be used in any M & S store.
To receive your free vouchers by e-mail all you have to do is send this e-mail out to 8 people (for £100 of free vouchers) or 20 people (for £500 of free vouchers). Within 2 weeks you will receive an e-mail with your vouchers attached.
They will contact you through your e-mail address.
A quick look at snopes, and guess what: it’s a scam! (how surprised are you?)
The email isn’t valid, and a quick google shows many peeps were caught out. Extra bonus: it dates to 2007! Gheesh – are we still falling for this!?
