    You are pathetic for ever believing such a thing. There are websites that are available to check on things like this, can't believe you are actually slating M&S over it. You so deserve to end up with an email inbox full of spam (that's what these things are for)! BTW Persimmon homes have actually issued a statement on their website with regards to this scam that started in June last year!

    "or give people their vouchers"

    Are you totally gullible? This is a SCAM and has nothing to do with M&S, Persimmon Homes, Mickey Mouse, Wonder Woman or the Dalai Lama.

    By the way I'm concerned about security, could everyone send me their bank account numbers and passwords so I can check them?

    Really, people, wise up.

    Hi Rostron71,

    I saw your message about being worried about security and wanting bank details to check them.

    Here are mine:
    Bank Name: HSBC
    Sort Code: 50-26-34
    Account Number: 56781234
    Branch Location: Maidstone, Kent

    I hope there's no problems with my account and it's all secure. I would hate my details to fall into the wrong hands.

    Thanks a lot,

    If you people have got nothing constructive to say then keep your opinions to yourselves!!! And by the way there are genuine e-mails like this one that go around so get your facts straight before saying people are gullible or pathetic and let the appropriate people deal with the situation!

    Oh dear god why do people believe these things!!!

    How much do you think it would actually cost M&S to advertise this way if they chose to??? It would be cheaper to take out an hour long advert during prime time TV!

    This scam has been going on for years, and will continue for years while it is still being forwarded on...

    Mary, just thought i'd let you know that your NI number has too many digits in it. If you could possibly tell me your entire work and family history to go along with the supplied details I will happily look into this for you. I know a friendly gentleman from Nigeria who collects these to assist with sorting out errors. He even managed to get a passport in my name for me after my application for asylum was rejected by the home office... :)

    To straighten this out for everyone. I know the guy whose email address it is!

    Someone did it as a joke, the original email was sent to a few friends however became out of hand as people believed that it was a legitimate offer. We all know that both companies do not need the advertising.

    He is not a spammer ash. Maybe you should find out your facts first.

    it is such a pity that a reputable company like M&S, can get their good name blackened like this, they work hard to keep their name, and their clientelle!
    I know that M&S only accept their own vouchers, or gift cards!
    I'm heading their in the morning, for something tasty for lunch mmmmmmmmm
