    If you received the email via Hotmail, report it as a phishing scam (Junkmail drop-down menu) and if you feel like it, send them a reply with something about Karma catching up with them.

    However, by replying to them you also validate your email address to them and their lack of conscience may lead them to retaliate in some way, the result of which could on the other hand hopefully be their complete undoing, so it can be a two-edged sword...

      Never reply to phishing or spam emails because you will only be telling the scammers that your email address is active. And, once they know, they will continue to send more emails.
