A very important thing to remember is, legitimate organizations like Microsoft or Blackberry, do not or should not use free e-mail service like Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail or others. Once you are asked to send information to these free e-mail service accounts that should raise a red flag.
Anyone can create an e-mail account at these free e-mail service providers and use it for malicious purposes.
Legitimate organizations should use e-mail addresses like "something@theirOrganizationName.com".
Our information e-mail address here at Online Threat Alerts is info @onlinethreatalerts.com instead of something like "email@example.com".
Finally, if you receive an e-mail message claiming you are the winner of some prize and didn't take part in a raffle, promotion or any other betting games, this is a scam.
