    dubious offer

    biology teacher got this, ....its a clever way to farm emails for sure lol

    Dear All,
    Ericsson are distributing free laptops for their brand promotion.
    They are hoping to increase their popularity and sales with this campaign.
    All you need to do is send an email about this promotion to 8 people and you will receive an Ericsson T18 laptop.
    However, if you send an email to 20 people or more you will receive an Ericsson R320 laptop.
    Kindly ensure that you cc to Anna at Ericsson so that she will know you have sent the email.
    Make sure you copy Anna@Ericsson.co.uk to your emails.

    Our admin office just forwarded a many times forwarded copy of this email (containing loads of email addresses) to me asking "is this any good to us?"

    I think I will go and tell her that the word gullible has been removed from the dictionary.....
