Kindly Acknowledge Receipt of this Email: 3 Steps to Verify a Scam Email

There are three very obvious parts in this email tell us this is a scam email.

1. First of all, the sender's email address is not from so-called Sony Ericsson. Do you believe that Sony Ericsson not afford to buy email address for their employee but got money to give you??

2. The receiver's email address is not specific. In other words, more than one people will receive this kind of email with the same Ticket number: Sony/89bgn002876/2010. How can the company who will obtain the price. All people who show out this so-called ticket number?? Come on, this is not logic and the company will bankrupt soon this email is real.

3. Finally, please don't greed. I haven't ever applied or participated so-called the Sony Ericsson ongoing year promotion, how the company get me??

The content of this email is shown below:

Hi just came to say that I received the same email with the same ticket number, and I received on november 20th 2010. I'm from Brazil by the way, just for people to see how far this scams goes ... Of course I received the email in english.

Thanks for the visitor from Brazil. Nice to meet you here.

Indeed, most of them (spammers or scammers or phishers) do not change the ticket number and send it out to lots of people.

Good luck and all the best.
