MICROSOFT LOTTERY

Below you will find the text - CONGRATULATION YOU HAVE WON THE MICROSOFT LOTTERY - email spamming scam. This message appears to be sent from - Hannah Forrest [hannah.forrest60@gmail.com]. August 26, 2008. Return or Reply email as - dr.preciousfender_desk@yahoo.com. As many spammers use additional reply to addresses and faked message headers.

If you receive message like this one, add the sent from address to your denied senders list, report the message to SPAM@UCE.GOV and report to the spam & abuse department of the sent from domain.

Don't ever follow any spammers links or reply to their messages. ALL Links and images were removed from Spammers message. And this message had several images to try and fool you and look authentic.

Don't just delete these scammers and fraudsters - report them.

This is one dumb spammer, now if you won the Microsoft Lottery that you never even heard of, why would the email addresses be @yahoo and @gmail???? Very unlikely Microsoft would use another companies free email accounts.
