I Won 500,000 British Pounds!

Things that make you go HMMMM. A couple of things make me a bit suspicious though. For instance Incorporation and Telephone are misspelled. And they told me I "have won a prize money." And what is a "Reff number?" And since when do folks from Microsoft use Yahoo email? Do you think this is legit?

I'd be willing to bet anyone stupid enough to fall for this doesn't know how to turn on a computer, let alone use email!
