Yahoo and Outlook Windows Live And Microsoft Awards Lottery Scams

If you have received the fraudulent email below or others like it, which claims that you are a winner in the "Yahoo & Outlook Windows Live And Microsoft Awards," please do not follow the instructions in it. This is because the email is a lottery scam. There is no Yahoo/Windows Live Internet Award lottery and the fake email message was sent by cyber-criminals/scammers, and not by Yahoo! or Microsoft. Yahoo or Microsoft will never ask their users to send their personal information via an email message. And, sending your personal information to those cyber-criminals will only help them rip you off. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into stealing their personal information and/or sending money.

For online users who have already been tricked by the fraudulent e-mail, please be careful next time. This is because the cyber-criminals/scammers will contact those online users, using the information they have submitted, in an attempt to scam them.
