Microsoft and Yahoo fight fraudsters
Some things never seem to go away, like the frauds which originate in Africa and promise plenty of cash.
Many people do get scammed by these fraudsters all of time for huge amounts of cash and to make things even worse the problem is not getting any better, in fact far from it.
But now Microsoft and Yahoo are teaming up to fight back against these cyber criminals who send out millions of emails informing the readers that they have either won some sort of lottery or with a business proposal which sounds too good to be true, because it is.
The collaboration between Microsoft and Yahoo is mainly going to be that of education, rather than any physical intervention.
However, as these companies are the largest providers of free internet based email accounts, then maybe it is in their best interest to be seen to be something about it.
