Dear Mrs Nevin,

I have been given your name as the correct person to speak to within Saint Johns Catholic SchoolandSixth Form Church Englandntre regarding attendance to the Government ICT 2013 Conference in central London on the 15th January.

Full details can be found by clicking HERE, <http://govnet.msgfocus.com/c/13tIT5gBpl5T5REJ951aM59xj>  but in brief, the event focusses on the delivery and implementation of the ICT strategy with specific insights into open source, open data and the introduction of PSN.

I have 2 places provisionally allocated to Saint Johns Catholic SchoolandSixth Form Church Englandntre at a significantly reduced rate for the day (£199 + VAT), and I wanted to see if these were required. I have been set the deadline of confirming interest by the beginning of next week so any assistance in this would be much appreciated.

If you are not the person to speak to regarding this, I would be very grateful if you could point me in the right direction as to who the relevant person would be within this remit.

If you have any questions at all, or can help in any way, please do not hesitate to call me on 0161 211 3460 or email me at Lucy-Ann.Needs@GovNet.co.uk. Alternatively, you can book online by clicking HERE <http://govnet.msgfocus.com/c/13tITrKIZAuo5GgKdWXKzgiDs>  and using the code MV7TG43 to receive your discount.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Kindest regards,

    I think you should simply leave the e-mail alone as it mentions money so it could well be a scam or anything, and quite frankly I don’t actually understand the e-mail enough to even know what it’s talking about. It also has a link to some website which might not be safe either.

    check the contact details and the website to see if the e-mail shows some truth, but since it came into the spam box, be careful this may not be from who they say its from.

    on regards to your previous email, I would not be the best candidate for the required event. But i can put you in contact with a person i feel is more of a worthy candidate to take you up on this offer. He is called Mr. Mcintyre.

    Kind Regards

    This is an excellent email, you are definatly the best candidate for this event

    my advice towards this email is to avoid this email because if it is already in the ‘ spam box’ then the computer automatticaly picks up that this email could be fake or a virus because with the use of lin ks it could direct link to an unsafe website causing harm to your computer, also if you do not understand the email to not make a form of contact as you may cause further problems

    I would leave it because they do not know anything about the school so i think this message shouldn’t be replied to. I would leave it because she hasn’t even spelled the school’s name correctly therefore this message shouldnt be replied to and then leave the message,,

    If I were to recieve this e-mail I would leave it and not reply at all, as first of all it has gone to the spam box and the person who has e-mailed has spelled the school name wrong to start with as well as other spelling mistakes

    I would leave the email untill further contact is made. If it is an authentic email, they would try and adress the school through a letter or ring up.

    Ignore it becasue there is a significant amount of money involved. This means this email could be a spam and a scam.

  10. October 16, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    i think you should not open it because it may contain any number of virus’, check if the email adress itself is verified as authentic, and maybe scan the message itself for any malware. if you do follow throught and open make sure that you do not give any creditcard/bank details. this message cant be trusted considering they nothing about you and even spelt the name wrong

    i would leave this email alone because there is a lot of spelling mistakes which probably means the email is not real and they are just trying to scam money from you

    e-mails which go into the spam box are always messages with adverts or fake offers. I would open the e-mail and check what it is but I wouldn`t contact that person back because it is a spam. Also the message has some spelling mistakes and the name of the school is not correct – another point is that school would contact me first before I would receive that sort of message

    I would ignore this email as you have not heard of the event you have been invited to before, but if you wanted to be sure i would contact the government to see if it exists and to see if they have heard of the person that sent it before. But because the email was picked up by the spam folder in your email it means that it may be untrustworthy and may sent you to a website that may steal your peronal details and money so be very careful about what information you give this website.

    I would leave this email as it could be a scam and it could be a virus which will cause the computer to crash, it also has many spelling mistakes so it dosent seem safe as they havent checked over the email before they have sent it.

    I would leave it because you dont know what is in it, this could harm your computer plus you dont know if its an virus. also the email includes money which can empty your bank account if you enter deatils, also the school name spelled wrong.

    Since the email is in the spam box already the email server has already labeled it as junk. Also the recipient does not know anything about the recieved email so it would be best to just leave it alone.

    i would most likely leave it alone or delete immediatley, considering their are spelling mistakes in the email, plus they were spelling ‘St’ as ‘saint’ which isnt often used in that way. finally since its gone top the spam box it should be left alone

  18. matthew ellison

    i think that this e-mail could be un-safe because it talks about money and includes a link to a website which could be un-safe to use. also there are many spelling mistakes which could show that it is written by some nutter.

    Because the email is int the spam box you sholdn’t open it for it may contain virus’ or may be fake. If it is a genuine email they should have contacted the school through the phone for this is less time consuming. Also the school name is spelt incorrectly so this can be another reason the leave it alone.
