yea, i have been getting that one through my .hotmail account for the past 2 years... you cannot reply to the email and there is not a website! i have tried blocking the email, but that does not work.
classic example of SPAM!

In Hotmail, try these settings:
> Enable Junk Mail Filter
> In Custom Filters, set up filters like:
If [From Addr] [does not contain] @ Then deliver to [Trash Can]
If [Subject] [contains] Diploma Then deliver to [Trash Can]
If [From Addr] [contains] Then deliver to [Trash Can]
