We've seen a few group email fails in our time, ranging from accidentally sending secret hate mail to the person that is targeted to putting every sender in the CC box instead of BCC when they're bidding for a Bitcoin investment.




The latest was completed by the Australian supermarket chain Woolworths, sending out an email to over 1,000 people featuring a spreadsheet of customer details.


Containing names and email address', Woolworths also managed to send out exactly 7,941 vouchers worth a total haul of $1,000,796.96 US ($1,308,505 AU) to some lucky people.


This happened overnight local time, maybe someone needs to lay off the overtime and head home early.
