Unsolicited spam email that asks for personal information such as social security number, credit card numbers, account passwords, and the like in order to scam the recipient.
(See also spam scam.)
A HotMail account is just a magnet for all kinds of scam spam.
1. A deceitful spam e-mail whose sender is clearly meant to cheat you out of money and waste your time.
2. A deceitful e-mail that is clearly meant to steal your identity and empty your bank account.
1.I got another one of those Nigerian e-mails again promising me millions of dollars if I would stand in for the next of kin. Come on, that is such a scam spam.
2. My friend got a Job Opportunity spam from China if only I would send my name, phone, addresses, bank account number and a picture of himself.
If that isn't a scam spam, I don't know what is.
