Microsoft New-Year Email Draw (scam alert)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is a typical example of a lottery scam message, claiming to come from the Microsoft Corporation. The scammer will try to collect personal information about you, and then contact you to try to trick you out of an “advance fee” — and if you make the mistake of paying, the scammer will disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.
