Yahoo and Microsoft take aim at lottery scams

Source: vnunet.com

"Yahoo and Microsoft are teaming up in an effort to stop lottery e-mail scams. ... The campaign will establish a new service which allows victims of the scams to share police reports. ... The hope is that the database will better enable both the companies and law enforcements to link the lottery scam cases and track down the criminals behind the fraud operations. INTERPOL will also contribute to the project by spreading awareness of the site and encouraging law enforcement groups to utilize the database in investigations."
