I once got one by email claiming to be an email tracking test and that microsoft would pay hundreds of dollars for each person you forward it to.

I politely replied to the sender pointing out that Microsoft would be bankrupted a million times over and it was obviously a lie.

But it was amazing how many people had forwarded it before it got to me.

Perhaps they thought that Microsoft might have decided to give some value at last in return for the huge sums they extract from people?
