Microsoft sells your information to PORN industries


Yes I know if you look at the FROM field it will say my e-mail address but I Didn't send this to myself , I get e-mails like this all the time, and it even means to me that others are receiving SPAM from my e-mail address. :(

This e-mail was sent to me from a Microsoft Partner who recieved my private information from Microsoft and this e-mail I use isn't even a Microsoft E-mail address. As you see here I'm using Yahoo to access it.

"You are receiving this e-mail because you subscribed to MSN Featured Offers." No I DID NOT! "Microsoft respects your privacy." By sharing my personal information with everyone? "If you do not wish to receive this MSN Featured Offers e-mail, please click the "Unsubscribe" link below. This will not unsubscribe you from e-mail communications from third-party advertisers that may appear in MSN Feature Offers. This shall not constitute an offer by MSN. MSN shall not be responsible or liable for the advertisers' content nor any of the goods or service advertised. Prices and item availability subject to change without notice." Prices? Prices for Porn?

Now that you know where your junk mail is comming from please call Microsoft at: 1-800-785-3448 or send them e-mail by clicking the Feedback link at the bottom of the www.msn.com page.

My Response To Microsoft:


I also sent them this: "STOP SENDING ME SPAM. I NEVER USE YOUR SERVICES AND I NEVER AGREED TO ALLOW YOU TO SEND ME ANYTHING.

YOU HAVE committed an illegal operation and must be shut down to prevent further damage. BSOD.

P.S. Ultumix TM GNU/Linux Rules!"

from my other address.

Hi!
I just received an almost identical spam (only difference: the link purported to be to a Paris Hilton instead of Angelina Jolie video).
As the link was actually to an .exe file, I reported the e-mail to the cybercrime unit of the Swiss federal police, who have been sending warnings about phishing attempts using this kind of strategy.

However, much as I dislike MSN, I don't think that in this case, they are guilty: the address used in my version of the spam was one I have never used for MSN things. It seems rather that the spammers are using MSN's name and texts in an attempt to lend credibility to the message.

Best
