    So does anyone, for certainty, know,this is a scam,it came up in my mail box,

    So why would I question it,by law , hotmail.com have to provide a degree of security ..

    I've replied to the email, so what ever happens , happens... but I presumed on having a hotmailaccount,with one of the worlds largests companies, they'd be thouroug in my own protection of such scams......

    And they wonder why people want to bring back capital punishment....

    Miyuki Administratrix Staff Member

    Yes it is absolutely a scam and no, Microsoft does not have anything to do with this. These are internet criminals who want to steal money and use a lottery format. And this isn't a capital crime so capital punishment or not it won't make any difference.
     
  9. These email continue to come still. I wonder how many innocent fall into trap.

    Unfortunately far too many. By posting about them and showing copies of the scams we hope to educate as many as possible and for people to see that they are scams and so do not fall for them.

    They can get away with it in part because in most countries just sending a scam mail is not a crime. The crime element occurs when a victim sends money and until they complain then nothing can happen. Also, if it's small amounts of money no one is going to chase down the criminals.
