Microsoft Winners Unit / Fraud Lottos

1 United Arab Emirates Review updated:

I recieved an e mail claiming i won 1, 000, 000, 000 pounds in Microsoft lotto draw, of course out of curiousity i looked in to it but quickly discovered that it was a fraud.
My Reference number MSW-L/[protected], OF COURSE gave them all false information as i realised quickly what they are doing. Nigerians here in Dubai are also trying to scam people on another website for buying animals where you send money and never recieve the pet. Its a disgrace and i only wish that these horrible criminals could be caught, how pathetic are they????
What is being done to stop this, surely the big network providers with all their technology can do something to prevent this from happening, they earn enough from Internet users to make the internet a fun place where you feel safe.
