So I open my e-mail page and I see a congratulatory unread e-mail from MIcrosoft and Windows live (supposedly) and it says this :

Quote by e-mail
E-SELECTION

Dear E-mail user,

Your e-mail has been selected as one of the winning e-mails for the 2008 second quarter Microsoft online awards.

You as the e-mail user have therefore been approved to claim the lump sum of seven hundred and fifty thousand Great British Pounds! assigned each, to all the ten winners whose e-mails were selected in category C'.

All participants for the online sweepstake were selected randomly from
World Wide Web sites through a computer draw system and extracted from
over a million associations,and corporate bodies including personal
e-mails that were listed online. Draw number: ********* of May 7,2008.




Has anyone else gotten a weird e-mail like that before ?

EDIT : I know it's spam, I know it's fake, this is a thread for you to share weird e-mails not comment on my "newbness" of e-mail usage..
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

I got some weird ones, a Frenchman named claude decided I was a friend of his, and kept sending me emails. I must have got about 30, I didn't reply to a single one. Each said things like "you keep saying you haven't got my emails so maybe I have the address wrong" but he never bothered to check it!

its not a scam. all you gotta do is send them all of your credit card numbers, and if one of them is lucky, you get a prize!

Lmfao, I'll go ahead and do that XD although in my defense the e-mail seems pretty legit with copyright stuff and information and all that ****.. If it is indeed true then hello new studio....

Wow, I've been here for a while.

I tried to sell a guitar on craigslist once

This dude writes me right away saying he's a serious buyer and will send me a check, and how he wants me to pay his private mover for him.

I was selling it for $300 and the next day I get an express check for $1500.

I told the dude there's no way in hell I'm cashing that much money and sending him any.
He started writing me nasty e-mails saying he was gonna call the cops on me cause I was trying to screw him over.

So I finally wrote him back telling him that I'm on to this scam and that I'm not an idiot and that if anyone is going to jail, it's him for making counterfeit checks and if he didn't stop e-mailing me, I'd be sure to alert the FBI.



Guy writes me back saying, and I quote:

"what? are you mad at me? "

It was a spam email for Cerebral Pausley or whatever that disease is called, but the subject made me LOL hard, as you can see if you right click the file name of the image.

You didn't realize you're obviously not the friend he's trying to email, and let him know he's sending the messages to the wrong person? You're an idiot.

None of these emails are really 'weird' though. It's all just unoriginal, basic spam. There's already a thread for that, search for Nigerian or something.
