These guys start off with "Thanks for the e-mail," and are now pretending to reply to the query that you never made, thereby making believe that they aren't spamming or trying to scam you. Another "convincing factor" to this scam is that they want you to reply to a Microsoft Live e-mail address, located in London (live.co.uk), but do not be fooled. It is simply a free e-mail address that anyone can sign up for. Microsoft does provide the free e-mail service, but otherwise it has nothing to do with anyone who works at Microsoft.
Here we go with the 'J' instead of the '£' symbol again, attempting to represent British Pounds Sterling. They say there is some PDF file attached, but they did not attach it. They're also rather rude and won't tell you where to get Adobe Reader, just in case you don't have it. It is available at this link. The unattached PDF supposedly has some "requirements" for some nonexistent insurance policy, which apparently is supposed to insure your nonexistent 6.3 million pounds, to be "delivered" to you. After you have "read the policy," they say you will "receive further instructions." They will be all about how they're going to try and rip you off. There are more of these 419 Microsoft scam samples located Here, and a video Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
