    Have you heard of Microsoft corporation sending emails that your account has been hacked and they can fix it for a small fee . First they send out fake emails from other people stating that you (I) have been asking them for money or their social security number and their going to send your emails to Microsoft so they can contact you to fix it . Then a fake Microsoft person sends you an email and calls you . This is the email address they use : corporationmicrosoft960@gmail.com

    Received this message via SMS connected to email xxxb@rochester.rr.com perhaps a link to Rochester NY and the roadrunner ISP respond to gmfto@outlook.com found your site by search.

    Apparently, this group of Phishing artists is filled with morons. contacting Roadrunner and their parent is the best action.

    In my email, there will be sufficient cause to file suit against the ISP for the spamming that is being done via their service. I understand that this may be a zombie account but the ISP is still responsible.
    SMS reads as follows:
    You have been announced the WINNER of $500,000 with Apple Laptop By Gmail Inc, CONTACT gmfto@outlook.com Email your name, address, age, num.

    As you can see the limit of the characters hit. Perhaps Microsoft would like to be involved with the lawsuit as they are the recipients of personal information that has been fraudulently requested. Hmm, let's add them to the potential lawsuit, shall we?

      They will use it to attempt to scam you. They will call you and refer to you by your name, address and other information, in order to convince you that the scam is legitimate. Sometimes, people receive phone calls from telemarketers and scammers and wonder how those people got their telephone numbers. Well, this is one such way.

Last year around this time I received a fake publishers clearing house email stating I won; and my little sister informed me if you won some money they would not make you pay for something you won.

    Thank you for sites like this. I should of known I was being scammed although that money would of been useful it was not meant to be..

    I googled it and validated my suspicion it is a SCAM.

    Then, went back to the suspicious email and marked it SPAM. It completely disappeared from my email. It is not even in my spam folder.

I then went to Cortana, and typed in my concern. Thank you for your reply and I will definitely share this with all of my friends.

    I sent them my basic info like phone number ect. I never fall for this stuff so I am slapping myself. After I sent that I got a email asking me to pay for shipping to receive the check I then knew it was a scam and I started doing research online and I found this site.

    I then forward the email to Spam@uce.GOV. I don't plan on falling for something like this again. If you didn't enter a contest you didn't win.

      Once you have submitted your information to scammers, there is no way to delete it. So, always do your research first, before submitting any information online.

      Spam filters are not a 100% accurate, therefore some spam emails will bypass it. That is why it is important that online users educate themselves about online scams and continue to use this website to help them find scams.

    I was so pleased to have asked the question - in reply to their first message on 9/21/15 - "Could I please be provided first with proof that this is NOT A SCAM?", because when I didn't hear back from the scammer(s), I went on-line and saw the list of lottery scams on www.onlinethreatalerts.com. I also Googled "buckeyemail.osu.edu" which sender's address was on their first email and found that it was a free student email network associated with Ohio State University! Should this not be reported to the University in question?

    Today on 9/25/15, I received a second message from them with detailed instructions for receipt of the $500,000 and a request for my personal data. I was fully prepared and in reply sent the article on Lottery Scams as well as the entire Fraudulent Email Message alert in that article to them. I should have added that I would report this incident to crime-stopping agencies but assume that they will now switch to a different scheme.....

      You are ok. That is not enough information to steal your identity, personal or financial information. But, the scammer will use the information that you have sent, to attempt to trick you into sending them money or other information. So, if someone calls you and is able to tell you what your name, address, phone number, occupation, gender or age is, remember that you have sent the same information to the scammers and they maybe using it to trick you.

        This is why it is important that the public be educated about cybercrimes, so they can help protect themselves.

      I received this same email today: 9-2-2015. I thought my dreams were answered and was falling for it, lol.

      I figure I better look into further because of the shipping. I was very reluctant to purchase until I get more info and to my surprise The Global Courier is detailing it's advertising in another language, I think spanish, not a word in English that made me look even further into it, for I did not want it to be a SCAM!!

      This stuff really irks me and also scary because they can also steal your identity now. I have to get indenity protection and tell them what I have gotten myself into.

      I am glad I'm not the only one learning from this. Thank you technology.

      Nothing you can do, except know better next time! If you win something you don't have to pay anything to receive it! All they can do with basic information sell it.

      Just mark it as spam on your computer, or tablet, through whomever your E-mail service is with. You will probably be asked to buy Alot of stuff for awhile so be prepared for the influx of emails and texts on your phone or sales calls.

      Sorry, happened to me too. Live and learn.

      They will use the information you have sent to attempt to trick you into sending money or more information.

      They may also sell your information to spammers or other rogue online marketers, who will continuously send you spam/junk emails, call or text you, in an attempt to rob you.

    I can't remember how many of these notices I have gotten in the past few years. If these were real, I would be a multi-millionaire by now.


    It is strange that a person receiving so many of these wouldn't think something about this is fraudulent. I didn't volunteer any of this information to win it, so why do I need to provide this information to collect it.

    Everybody please be careful because there are individuals out there to steal you blind if they get a chance ( I think most of you already realize this).

    Every time I get one of these, I report it from my Gmail options:(Report Scam)and hopefully the proper authorities will find and prosecute them.

The reason I had my doubts about its being real or not was the fact that the information had to be emailed back to the event coordinator for Gmail at an email address that was not a Gmail address, which told me right way this was not right. I called the Better Business Bureau then I Googled it and sure enough it's a scam. Thank you everyone for making sure those of us who received our notices after you all could find information to protect ourselves thanks to all of you!!!

    This is sad. At this point and time in my life, I am going through some major issues. My husband of 26 years had a heart attack 5 years ago which made his health rapidly decline. He is one of the hardest working men I've ever known. About a year ago he had a stroke. He lost the job working on tractors and heavy farm equipment that he was employed at for the last 10 years.

    My health being as it is, poor and also declining, I am currently unemployed as well. My best friend was murdered, my mother just passed away, and so did my cousin. So when I received the email stating I was picked out 80 million people to receive 750,000 I thought maybe there was hope. So since I wasn't as smart as some of the other people and I did send them my info.

    What precautions should I take at this time?
