From: UK Data Portfolio [firstname.lastname@example.org]The email is sent (as always) to an address scraped off the internet, so the mailing list there are selling is probably of a similar low quality, or alternatively the list might be stolen off someone else. In any case, the pitch about "closing" is a flat lie as they were using the same line two years ago. There's a very good chance that using this list will get you blacklisted for spamming.

UK Business Database
We have decided to cease our data broking service to concentrate on our increasing consultancy work.
We have built and developed a UK business portfolio of 550,000 records. It is opted in at decision maker level and contains full business profiles along with the decision makers direct email address. It has been verified monthly and is extremely accurate.
We normally sell this information for over £2000 but as we are only permitted to sell another four copies due to opt in agreements and due to the fact that we are closing this division we thought we would offer it to a few businesses at a lower cost of £475.
Sales will close either when four sales are achieved or on Friday 25th April when we aim to finalise things.
We have changed the price of the database on our website to £475 so you just need to purchase the Full UK Database.
