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
Have other people noticed that over the past few weeks the way house flies seem a great deal harder to kill with usual house sprays than they were when the temperatures were higher.
Does anyone have any advice on which sprays work best? I have been using Mortein Power Gard, and Fast Knockdown to little avail, The same flies just fly about till I spray them about four or five times, and directly on them!
Call me today 0211988894 for more information.
