We've probably all seen those dodge ads in autotrader where a car is advertised stupidly cheap and the message says to contact them not throught the autotrader website or by phone, but to email them directly. ANyway i felt like winding them up one day so send an email off pretending to be intersted in a Mitsu Warrior. A 2006 facelift which the seller wants £2900 for!

The response i got -

They have started targetting the local newapaper small ads now as well.
We printed 6 last night from different regions that all had the same Audi Q7 (2007 model) in them priced at around 10 grand.
Email only as they cannot answer the telephone due to the nature of their work.

"Could you get naked and lie accross the car bonnet for clarification purposes?"

I know that it's possible to go to a website that attempts to prevent spam email being sent to yourself.
Is there opposite around, i.e. somewhere where you can place an email and it would get absolutely bombarded by spam junk mail?
