Question about Microsoft Outlook 2003 for PC

Fraud? I have just received an e-mail from Yahoo stating that I am one of 5 winners of 5000.00 pounds for the month of August. The form looks genuine, but I don't know very much about computers, so I am wondering if it is indeed genuine. How can I tell?

Hi,
Currently, there are several versions of fraudulent e-mails being circulated which purport to be from Yahoo, AOL, Microsoft, BMW... These e-mails advise the recipient that he or she has won money or a car and requests the recipient to provide personal data or to pay a fee in order to receive the prize.

As I well experimented/tested these fraudulent emails I am 100% sure that these e-mails are NOT authentic. The e-mail have NOT been sent by Yahoo, nor has Yahoo authorized the use of its name. Please be advised not to provide any personal information or transfer money to the perpetrators. Any personal information provided to the perpetrators will likely be used for illegal purposes.

You were right to worry. Internet fraud is very common these days. Unless you participated in some contest by Yahoo, I hardly think Yahoo is giving money to just about anyone. These forms usually promise prizes and eventually ask you for details such as your bank account and credit card number. Be very careful, and do not give anyone your personal details.

    Probable fraud email supposedly from Yahoo customer care

    The name that appears when you receive an email from Yahoo Customer and Care sounds like: Yahoo! UK & Ireland Login Support or Yahoo! Account Services or Yahoo! Account Services. As you can see the name usually starts with "Yahoo!". The case is different the format starts with KMM.

    Contact the real Customer and care from yahoo and forward the mail to them. You can also report it as an abuse.

    If you need further assistance, post a comment and do not forget to rate.
