Too good to be true?


This email basically states that you'll get a free laptop if you send the email to at least 8 people. It really sounds so simple and too good to be true. Sure enough, it turns out to be a hoax. In fact, the real Sony Ericsson has come out to clarify last year regarding this false email. There are many articles warning people about this, and some of them are as below:


Real promotions by legitimate companies usually won't carry out their promotions using chain email. They'll communicate directly with the public, or if not, they'll at least hire profession PR firms.

Hi Kim, thanks for visiting my blog ^^
