I'm not sure whether u guys have ever received this email before or perhaps u have already forwarded this email to your friends just like me. Here comes the truth!!

On May 12, 2009 Sony Ericsson released the following statement in response to a new version of the hoax:

Hoax Competition Email

Sony Ericsson has been made aware of an online email campaign claiming that Ericsson will give away a free laptop computer to users who forward the promotional information. The same campaign includes a photograph of the Sony Ericsson logo and mentions an Ericsson contact name and email number.

Sony Ericsson confirms that this email campaign is a hoax. In addition, Sony Ericsson confirms that the Ericsson contact name does not exist.

All competitions and promotions involving Sony Ericsson are run through official channels such as Sony Ericsson’s website or Sony Ericsson’s partners’ websites. Please be wary of any competition or promotion that appears to come from outside of Sony Ericsson or Sony Ericsson’s partners official channels. Examples of these include via spam emails or SMS.

Please do not reply to or forward the email if you receive it.

There is a newer version of this email now - I received it today - it is now offering a 'free Sony Vaio laptop'.

This one also comes with a nice graphical version.
