of Scams by Type and by profession.
Rating: REALLY a poor excuse for a Lottery Scam. First of all WHY? Well I could tell you but folks think.. I will not divulge the reasons why this one is not well thought out. No sense in giving the morons the skills they need to change it. However a few hints: The money? The website link at the bottom? Beyond that is the grammar, and the spelling which are atrocious. The Email LINKS? I have said too much already there are other problems with this extremely laughable attempt.. still most of us do own a Microsoft Product of some sort, but do you remember ANYONE saying you had a chance at winning a ton of money by buying it? Nice Idea and I wish it were true, but its not.
You won £1,500,000! Microsoft congratulates you!
