Another Obvious SCAM email.

*Note - this is a plain and simple 'copy & paste' of the email I received. Meant to show you exactly what the format looks like - NOT - for you to respond to this Scammer's offer...

It's from a 'generic' address - alexnnnnnk @ This person probably sends out the same email using the addresses alexnnk @, alexnnnk @, alexnnnnk @, possibly even alexxxnk @ The number of 'n' or 'x' characters present in the email is probably how this scammer keeps track of his scam mails and may use any variations of name that windows will allow because it's a FREE service...Mr Alex Cole - likely not a real name - probably has this letter attached to at least 10 windowslive addresses just for spamming people.

Here's the email:

And you have a nice day, too, Mr. Alex Cole...likely people will start reporting Mr. Alex Cole from alexnnnnnk @ as a scammer and spammer, so Mr. Alex Cole will show up with this same email under a hotmail address, a yahoo ID or something else. Mr. Alex Cole will just make a new email account at more free services and keep emailing this garbage...
