Several emails are circulating right now. They look official, but they're definitely not from Google or Microsoft.
They claims you've won half a million dollars in the Gogle/Gmail lottery.

The email asks you to send back your personal information, but don't do it.

One gal did and lost $200.

If you believe you've won a prize contact that group yourself.

In this case you're asked to wire money overseas, which doesn't make sense for a sweepstakes originating in the United States.

What's also suspicious are all the grammatical errors.
