STOP contributing and become junk mail donator, ok?

Subject: Fwd: Ericsson promotion

Dear all,

Ericsson is distributing free laptops for their brand promotion. They hope to increase their popularity and sale! By 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 or more people, you will receive an Ericsson R320 Laptop.

Make sure you cc to Anna at Ericsson so that she will know you have sent the e-mail.

Cheers

WAKE UP, my friend(s).....there is no free lunch in this world...

Read into the email content, Ericsson T18, this is don’t know some ages handphone, some more now Ericsson LAPTOP? Are you sure?

In addition, no company will give away some "FREE GIFT" through spam mail. There is some forward mail I always got from my friends.
The email content can be divided into few categories:

1) Help the sick one - "please forward this email to 20 peoples to help this poor kid", or "someone need a big sum of money to do operation, AT&T promised to give out 20cents for every mail you forwarded",
2) Free gift – Just like the one mentioned on top
3) Lucky Winner - "Microsoft randomly selected you as one of their winner, please send your contact info to blablabla@blablabla.com"
4) Pfishing scam - “I am the bank manager from BLABLABLA bank, I willing to give out 3 millions USD to you, please send me your contact detail. The most funny part is some beginning with his family intro, “I am the father of 2 kids, works as banker in…”, end with “I am sincerely to write this email to you, looking forward and waiting for your reply, please give me a chance and trust me”
5) The cursed one - Forward this to 20 persons, else you will be very bad luck or someone close to you will have accident....(If you received this cursed, why should you curse another 20 of your friends????)
6) .....all the craps!

If some of you might wonder, what if it is real?
Forward mail is an action of sharing love? You will not lost anything while just give it a try? The real part is you are contributing more junk mail, do you realize how much time has been wasted just to delete these junk mails everyday in this world? While you are forwarding to other people, some “bad” one will just scan through the forward email’s content in order to retrieve the “valid emailssssssss”. I got so many junk mails everyday, partially is because you are also contributing on it.

Reply to the pfishing scam? While you thought you are the lucky one? What make you think so? Do you think you are the better person than else one and deserve that gift? And god selected you as the lucky one?
Enough mean enough….stop it!


If you thought of wanna help others, please go to do blood donation rather than spam donation....thank you.

是的,我也对这类邮件感到厌烦。
不能阻止朋友继续为网络制造垃圾,
但我肯定不会将这类垃圾传出去。

**你举例的这封邮件我也收到,
还是遥遥朋友寄来的。**
