Wednesday Whisper #8 – the company executive that’s desperate to stop leaks to the press. Happy to help!

Which music executive is currently trying to work out who’s been leaking information from the company to the press? Recently, he used a sockpuppet account to send out some emails that said he was due to retire in the next few weeks and that we should run the exclusive – indeed, I received one of those emails.

The trick didn’t work, however. Upon receipt of the email, one of the recipients who knows him personally smelled a rat. Within seconds, he found out the IP address where the email had originated from – it was straight from the offices of the company.

Better luck next time…
