****************************
Notice the lack of Spark logo, the misspelt 'subscribe' in the bottom line, the non-Spark email address of the sender and, if you check the hot links, on those as well, and the use of the term 'broadband cables' when our area is all fibre, not cable.

It is probably part of a phishing scam where someone is looking for email addresses to sell to advertisers, but it could be more sinister.

So delete these emails; do NOT click any of the links, post them on your blacklist (although this doesn't guarantee you won't receive more.

Stay safe online

Alan
