The Microsoft Windows lottery has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Microsoft lottery has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the interative Lotteries Board Commission

Sincerely,

{Dr.Chucks Brown}

Yup, lol! Hey, at least this is a step up from the Nigerian scams.

But they do exist for a reason... for us to exploit them by scam-baiting.

Sort of like Data and Datum? Data is so abused as a word that we just accept the abuse. "Informations" is just grammatically wrong though.

I got one better for the Nigeria scams - I posted it over at the Calendar of Update forums, but will repost it here:

Quote:
Just got this in email today. I was surprised as the tack used here - this is a very targeted email - for those who have fallen victim in the past as well as those that know of the original scam but are still prone to click links when they should not...
Code:
Hello,

I'm Ms. Elizabeth Park Fowler of Tampa, FL 33629., I'm a US citizen, I'm 51yrs Old. I'm one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $38,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.


So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Barrister Ben Bruce, who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD AUTHORITY and a Human Rights Activist (Lawyer), and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake. 


He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I'm the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds amounteing to $11,000,000.00 Moreover, Barrister Ben Bruce, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email as one of the scam victims, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister Ben Bruce


You have to contact him directly on this information below.


COMPENSATION AWARD AUTHORITY
Name : Barrister Ben Bruce (Legal Practitioner And Adviser)
Email: ben_bruce1@live.com
Contact Number: +234-802-395-4591


You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.


The only money I paid after I met Barrister Ben Bruce was just $250 for the paper works, take note of that. 


Thank You and Be Blessed.

I put it in code format so no one would click and try to send an email - but the gall of the email is unnerving.

It just goes to show that the spammers and scammers will evolve with you - so you have to keep your eyes and ears open and pay lots of attention. After all, if they can evolve to this level of approach, then think how much their software can evolve - or how much their targeting can.
