Times must be tough for the bulk email outfit operating via a forwarding address in a west London business services centre, since it has just knocked a tenner off their "Unbelievable Secrets" email address CD containing 4.6m addies and some bulk mailer software.

This once-in-a-lifetime offer was previously £29.95, now suitably reduced for the pre-Xmas rush, according to a hot slice of spam just in:

BULK EMAIL CD just £19.95 inc. p&p and contains:

4,600,000 VALIDATED UK email addresses - Verified in August 2004, ensuring a low failure rate and only used privately.

TO PURCHASE: Please send a Cheque/PO Payable to "Unbelievable Secrets" for £19.95 and send to:

Unit 716, 78 Marylebone High Street, London W1U 5AP

The CD will be sent by first class post and you will also receive FREE software to send 30,000+ emails per hour.

Note: This CD does not contain any personal information of email address owners eg name/address etc.

Struan Robertson, an IT lawyer at solicitors Masons, recently told El Reg it was almost certain that the email addresses were not collected properly. He added that since the bulk mail package bundled with the CD would be used without the consent of those in the firing line, users of the software are violating European Privacy in Electronic Communications regulations.

Illegality aside, we reckon that if readers wait until January, the price of this must-have CD will be down to a fiver or less - if the perpetrators have not lamentably starved to death by then. ®
