Dear all,
Don’t get panic of this type of mails….
and please please please don’t forward to any of your friends..
these are tricks to get email addresses for advertising…………
lottery, ganapati bappa, shirdi saibaba origial photo are old topics now… so they have adopted new trick (this one)
ultimately you will forward this type of mail to all your friends in “TO” or “CC” and you will end up showing so many VALID email address in a Chain of mails..
any advertising company can get all these mails and start SPAMMING on your email addresses..
even if you want to forward such mail… then put  all your friends in “BCC” and then send.. also you can delete all previous email addresses
Dear all,
Don’t get panic of this type of mails….
And please please please don’t forward to any of your friends..
These are tricks to get email addresses for advertising…………
Lord Ganesha, Shirdi Saibaba photo, you must send to 20 people in 2 days otherwise you will get bad luck.. blah blah are old topics now… so they have adopted new trick (this is one of the new tricks)
Ultimately you will forward this type of mail to all your friends in “TO” or “CC” and end up showing so many VALID email address in a Chain of mails..
Any advertising/Cheat company/ Hackers can get all these mails and start SPAMMING on your email addresses.. (Lottery mails, I want to transfer 10000000 GBP/USD in your A/c.. are the SPAM mail examples)
Now the question is : How to know whether this is a SPAM/SCAM mail?
Answer : copy the subject line of mail, open Google.com in new browser window, paste the subject line and hit search….
From the search result itself you can judge what type of email it is.
Even if you want to forward such mail… then put  all your friends in “BCC” and then send.. also you can delete all previous email addresses

Decision is yours.
