Microsoft Department Of Promotion Bullshit Email

I’m sure that many of you would have received this email, just as sure that most of you would have recognized it for what it truly is, a pile of BS. Honestly, what professional would use a Yahoo account as a return email address?

Anyway, if you are even considering falling for this crap, don’t! Take my advice and don’t even respond to it because if you do, all you will be doing is confirming that they found a legitimate email which will open the floodgates to more of this crap.
