Beware of Microsoft Corporation Lottery Scams

Beware of Microsoft Corporation Lottery Scams

The email message below, which claims that the recipients are winners of the Microsoft Corporation Lottery, is one of the many lottery scamming email messages that are being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. There is no Microsoft Corporation Lottery, therefore, recipients of the fake email message should not respond to it or follow the instructions in it. Remember, every month, lottery scammers send out thousands of lottery scamming email messages in an attempt to trick the recipients into thinking they have won the lottery. 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.
