Validity of Yahoo or Microsoft Award Email RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sir/Madam,

    I've recently received an email from yahomicroawad@gmail.com about winning YAHOO AND MICROSOFT AWARD. 

    I inquire about authenticity of the email.

  • Think about it!

    Would either company use a Google-based email address for such an award? Both companies are Google's biggest competitors in a number of fields!

    The email is an obvious attempt to garner information for illegal purposes - or to defraud you.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
