UK Requirement – Bill Gates is Sharing His Fortune eMail - SPAM Emails

I have made my previous posting regarding the spam stating nirosha silva , it has been since long time the mail has been in circulation. Still the next SPAM email states its being from Microsoft, with the subject UK requirement which states that “Bill Gates is sharing his fortune” But this is again an SPAM / Fradulent email where many of the people using the internet, forward this kind of mails to their friend and relative, thinking that they would be earning more. But they realize finally that its an mail from a fradulent email. Here’s the mail which I received again from some of my friends. So inorder to educate about these kinds of SPAM emails I have made his post again. Here’s the mail I received stating that For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00. I got this mail some 3 years ago, and still I am receiving it from my friends till now once in 3-4 months or so, which is still in circulation.

From: Originated from someone (email address not available)
CC: sent to so many people (inculding me)
Subject: UK Requirement

Dear Friends,

Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is sharing his fortune. If you ignore this you will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period.

For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $241.00. Within two week! s, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a cheque.

For your information:

There are billions and billions of people who use Microsoft service worldwide, then why does Bill Gates wanted to share his fortune. Also a small wonder if Microsoft is going to give $245 to the person who sends the mail, will the company exist if the mail is being forwarded to all the Microsoft users? :) J

So don’t get fooled by these kinds of fake emails, Microsoft would be no way responsible if are being cheated by these kings of fraudulent emails.

I would like you to visit my “Try to understand what is SPAM” posting, to have a clear understanding on what a spam mail is and how it needs to be elimated. Also if you are a victim, just post my link in your email, and send this to friends to educate them about the kinds of SPAMS. I wish you to go through my entire blog to understand about Internet Security and the latest technology to encounter the frauds who steal your identity - which we term as Identity Theft or Phishing attacks. Be Safe and Secure Online – Happy Browsing!

To prevent from virus attacks in your computer, install an Antivirus software and if you are frequent internet user try to download internet security suite
