You may have noticed recently that the Financial Times has been running surveys both online and in their paper issues. Urging readers to complete the survey with a chance of winning a few hundred quid dangled as an inducement to completing the “survey”. Well to call it a survey is a misnomer it’s a blatant attempt by the FT to garner confidential information for marketing purposes. They want your data so they can use it to increase profits. Rather like most of the big high street retailers once they get the information they flog it on to various marketing companys at a premium! Yet another sign that the Old Girl has lost its marbles. Mammon speaks volumes. Dear Lionel Barber (surgeon) isn’t fooling any one. This blatant, thinly veiled public schoolboy wheeze should be treated with the derision it deserves! Never give out personal confidential information to any organisation whether it be the FT or a Nigerian 419 scam email!
