That last sentence is the kicker: "If for some reason this was sent in error..." seems to contradict "...verified business contacts..."
As you may have noticed, I'm slightly anti spam so I'm going to have some fun!
This is very interesting to me.
I'm looking for technical contacts in the IT/software industry, based in the UK.
Would you be able to send through some samples along with idea of numbers and the total cost?
Also, do you have full contact details or just email addresses?
