This is a hoax. As usual these hoaxes are targeted at those that are not yet cynical enough ;-) There is no such promotion it's just a hoax.

Victoria's Secret Gift Certificate...

It really works, I tried it and got my Gift certificate
confirmation number in 3 minutes.

My name is Victoria Johnson, founder of Victoria's Secret. In an
attempt to get our name out to more people in the rural
communities where we are not currently located we are offering a
$50 gift certificate to anyone who forwards this email to 9 of
their friends.

Just send this email to them and you will recieve a an email
back with a confirmation number to claim your gift certificate.

Victoria Johnson Founder of Victoria's Secret
I've received the following e-mail from Victoria Johnson:

Dear Support,

My name is Victoria Johnson of I am writing to confirm that the Victoria Secret email that you have reported on, on your web site is in fact a hoax and has NOTHING to do with me or my web site.

I have been bombarded with unpleasant email from surfers who think that the email is coming from my office and my web site. I would appreciate you printing this email on the Victoria's Secret Scam page on your web site to let everyone know the following:

1) Victoria Johnson and is not the originator of theVictoria's Secret Scam Email.

2) Victoria Johnson (the fitness celebrity) is not related in any way to Victoria's Secret

3) The Victoria's Secret email is a hoax and should be ignored if received.

Thank you for your assistance.
