So I get a email saying that I'm in the draw for a holiday as I'm a Orcon customer.  Only problem is I have'nt been a Orcon customer for years.

Do i still get to keep the holiday if I win? Smile

I was also just about to post about this.

I got the email

I've never been an Orcon customer

I've never entered any competitions or given them my email address.


Looks like SPAM

Even I got it, I left Orcon 1 months back so thought may be they still had my email flagged as a customer!

Are you sure it's from Orcon, and not a phishing attempt to collect username/passwords?

I got the same email. I was an Orcon dialup customer way back in 2004, but haven't been since then.

They don't ask for any details from you.

Hi all,
It appears my colleague has made a error, and included some past customers in the mailout.
Apologies if you were one of them and we got your hopes up/ confused you.
It was simple human error I am afraid.
Sorry!

I haven't been a customer for 8 years.  Why do you even have my email address anymore?

(It's not an orcon email address)

I know this is a week old, but I was in Fiji last week! ;) I'm a customer and never got an email. I wonder if I'm in the draw, I wouldn't mind going back... :)
