I’ve just had this one too. Do they think that just saying it’s not spam makes it not spam?
The unfortunate consequence of email is that too many people tend to believe anything they read. If something looks official and sounds official, it becomes accepted as true. That why so many rumors get forwarded around the net. I liken it to a bad Jedi mind trick, “This isn’t the spam you think it is.”
