Saw this in The Australian this morning and am posting it here as a heads up to ASF members.
I am reprinting it in full, this is the source:
A PERTH reader recently received a letter from BT Financial Group about his superannuation, complete with this kind invitation at the end from BT Financial Group chief executive Rob Coombe: "Don't forget we're here to help. Call us on 132 135, or if you prefer, you can email me directly me at (Coombe's personal email address) - I'd love to hear from you."
Reader X took up the offer, flagging his email before he hit Send. An electronic receipt for Reader X's email duly turned up and revealed his missive, complete with all his contact details and super account number, had been delivered into the server of marketing company Campaign Master (slogan: "We've mastered email marketing"). Reader X was, to say the very least, surprised. But faster than you can say "phishing expedition", BT's head of superannuation informed Reader X that BT has a standard agreement for a third party to intercept emails, had been doing so for years and nobody had noticed. Well, put that way, that's OK then.
