Subject: UKNM: no such thing as a free WAP phone
From: Amy Vickers
Date: Tue, 25 Apr 2000 12:24:21 +0100

I keep coming across a spam mail from Ericsson offering free WAP phones if
you spam 20 friends, and cc the mail back to ericsson (see below)

only, the address given: Anna [dot] Swelundatericsson [dot] com, supposedly in the
marketing department of ericsson, bounces and the message returned directs
the user to a spam site.

i know this has been going for at least a month now, but does anyone know if
it actually started off as kocher or has it always been complete and utter
