I have signed up for many sites that pay you to take survays and for the most part I do make money from them. But I have found that I get more and more spam mails that state that I have won something or money or emails from people that want to give me hundreds and even millions of dollars. I even got one or two the yesterday from "Microsoft", I know it was not from them, telling me that I have won money. The thing that is funny to me is that they have a yahoo, hotmail, or live email address that you have to respond to. Now, you would think that a company as big as Microsoft would have their own email account. LOL. I don't fall for them anymore, it just drives me crazy that my own email server has to fight off these, as I call them spam attacks. The sad part is that alot of people do fall for these emails. I guess my question to you is have you or anyone you know ever fallen for these scams? I would also like to know if you know about any scams that you would like to post here?
