This is a hoax targeted at those that are not yet cynical enough ;-). It first appeared in 2003.

There is NO such way to track e-mail (yet), so forwarding it to others will likely only get you  added to a persons spam filter or have complaints sent to your ISP abuse account.

I contacted the London BA 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. A 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 depature
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.

 

If you receive a message about this then please ignore it and don't pass it on as this only serves to propagate it.
