The email message below, which claims that the recipients are lucky winners of the "Google and Microsoft Windows Online Sweepstakes Promotion," is a lottery scam that is being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. There is no "Google and Microsoft Windows Online Sweepstakes Promotion," and recipients of the fake email message should not respond to it or follow the instructions in it.

Once potential victims respond to the fake lottery scamming email messages, they will be asked by the lottery scammers to send thousands of dollars, which the scammers will claim are for taxes and other fees that the potential victims must pay in order for them to receive their so-called lottery prizes. But, once the lottery scammers receive the money sent by their victims, they will disappear, leaving the victims disappointed, frustrated and a few thousand dollars poorer.
