Already, the spam has begun


Microsoft is taking over Yahoo!
Originally uploaded by Gnal.
It didn't take long for the spammers to latch on to the possible merger of Yahoo into Microsoft. Today, I, Winner, as in Dear Winner, although my friends call me Peter, received mail from Yahoo/Msn Lottery, sending from msnwin242@verizon.net, with a reply to address of claimsmanager711@yahoo.com.hk, stating the Yahoo/Msn lottery had chosen me by the board of trustees, as one of the final recipients of a cash Grant/Donation. I was approved for a total pay out of
500,000.00 GBP (Five hundred Thousand Pounds). All I have to do is provide some information:

1: Full name
2: Address
3: Sex
4: Age
5: Occupation
6: Phone Number
7: Country


Well, hell, if that's all they want, why don't they just look here and send the cash?

Oh, wait a minute... this is a scam, isn't it?
