The newsroom has gotten this mystery fax several times in the past few weeks - a fact you'll want to keep in mind when you read the first sentence. Because we don't want to encourage them, the numbers have been changed; the rest is verbatim, in all its caps- and punctuation-challenged glory.

Re: COMPANY VACATIONS
ALL EMPLOYEES MUST REVIEW:
This will be the last chance for all employees to have your choice of World Class Beach Front Resorts on the Mexican Caribbean.
As of today all employees still have access to our corporate vacation packages at our COMPANY RATE (up to 80% off retail). All vacations are good for one year with no black outs. Call if you are interested because every year these go fast!
This year we can all choose from:
Mayan Riviera, Cozumel or Puerto Vallarta.
All Trips are 6 days and are All-Inclusive (meals and drinks!)
All packages are $329 per person.
If you like diving (like my husband), then ask about the Cozumel Package.
You must call now to take advantage of this company offer.
If you feel you have received this company memo in error, please call 1-800-555-5556.
Question: Is it possible to receive a company memo in error? I would call the number to ask, but something tells me I'd wind up buying a vacation.
