A lottery scam mail claiming to be from the Microsoft Award Team at Barcelona, Spain, says that you have won 10million Euro.
It is an obvious scam and it is confirmed widely on the internet, as well as Microsoft website.
So, *Snap*, you didn’t win anything, but nearly lost something if you had chosen to proceed and deal with the scammers.
And they are using fake email address from pinkproductions.us (a sample photo site, non-adult as we write), and the actual contact is using aol.com email address – not quite popular email domain used in scam but nonetheless it is still a “FREE” email. It doesn’t matter because we know that no worldwide lottery exists today.
