For a long time I got only regular, boring, stupid scam emails. But this one seemed interesting as they didn't write an email as such, instead they attached a docx file with Outlook and Windows 8 graphic logos, as well as a graphic imitation of an official signature! The email itself seems to have been sent from an educational institution's email (.edu), but they ask to send your data to a free account (@live.com), so this is of course one more suspicious moment (not even mentioning the fact that I have never participated in any such lotteries). Unfortunately, there's no way to display the graphic part here or attach this file, so I just copied the text:

DAMNED NEAR THE EXACT LOCATION WHERE THIS EMAIL ORIGINATED, ONCE I SAW INDIA I KNEW IT WAS INDEED A SCAM NOT THAT I DIDN'T KNOW ONCE I SAW THIS SITE AND ONE PERSON POSTED THE LINK TO MICROSOFT'S SITE AND A POSTING ABOUT THIS EXACT EMAIL SCAM, IT REALLY DISGUSTS ME HOW EVIL PEOPLE CAN BE OVER MONEY, WHAT BOTHERS ME MOST IS THAT SOMEONE HAS ENOUGH TIME IN THEIR LIFE TO THINK THESE THINGS UP, MAKES YOU WONDER WHAT KIND OF WORLD DO WE LIVE IN...

Hi. New here. I just received this exact scam this morning, and since the last post was July 4, I guess it's safe to assume that whoever these people are, they're still going at it. I didn't trace the email back, like a few of you did, but instead I went straight to Google to see if it was legit or not, even though my gut was already telling me that it's a scam. I wanted Google to confirm it. Then I happened upon this site, and promptly reported the email for phishing.
#212185 by AlanJones Mon Jul 28, 2014 2:44 am
^^^Please do not report the email addresses to the providers in future, it is counter-productive and makes posts on this forum useless.

It will take the scammer 30 seconds to set up a new email address and carry on with his scamming and future victims who search the new email address (like you did) won't find a warning as we may not know about the new address and may end up losing money.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Just wanted the community to know that it is back and to look out. the last post I saw was in august so now being January I thought I would let you all know.
