Microsoft Lottery 2016 (scam warning)

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

The message below is a classic example of a lottery scam message. In the first place, there’s no such thing as the “Microsoft Lottery.” Second, even if there were such a lottery, you should always remember the number one lottery rule: if you didn’t enter, you haven’t won. No legitimate lottery awards prizes to random people who didn’t enter their contest.

Subject: Congratulations/You have won.

FBI Lottery Scam

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

This is a variation on the good old lottery scam — a scam so familiar that it may not be earning scammers much money as it used to. In this version, the scammer claims to be an FBI agent who has confirmed that you actually did win a lottery, and your money has already been deposited. If you’ll just send a small bank fee to an address in Nigeria (!), the money will be yours. The best that can be said for these scammers is that don’t hide what they’re really up to!
