Nelson Holidays - Spam Email

Anyone keep receiving a Neilson Holiday spam email?

They seem to have sent it to all sea schools on the rya database, I'm currently receiving their email at about 30 copies per minute!

Do the RYA sell this database to people???

I've recieved it around 500 times over night!! Glad its not just me recieving it!

If they were offering more than 10% off i might be slightly interested! My junk box is now dealing with it!

I assume they must get the details from the rya otherwise someone there has spent hours researching all sea schools

I suspect their servers have been hijacked - they may not even be aware they have a problem!!!

Send a message via Skype™ to SeaSkills
But at least they've now made a nice explanation and apology and a conciliatory 50 voucher offer (not that I'll be taking it up)
