Microsoft Email Beta Test Hoax Continues

Outline

Revamped version of the Microsoft email beta test hoax includes “testimonies” and a bank account screenshot of supposed money received. The message claims that Microsoft will send money to anybody who forwards it to others. 

Brief Analysis

These messages are ongoing versions of a long-running Internet hoax. The claims in the messages are utter nonsense. Microsoft will certainly not pay you just for forwarding on an email. Forwarding on such messages will do nothing other than clutter inboxes with useless garbage and make the sender seem foolish and naive.

If you receive one of these emails delete it without clicking on any links in the message. You can report scam emails to Action Fraud.
