Lottery scam!

Complaint Rating:  95 % with 44 votes
I too have received a congratulatory letter purporting to come from Microsoft saying I had just won 4.5 million pounds. This was from Lisa Dale Email:lisadale@msonlinecorporations.com
Microsoft Promotion Award Team
40 Ryecroft Way Stopsley
London, United Kingdom.

But she gave no phone number, despite me asking her for one in my reply. I also received:

Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the interative Lotteries Board Commission

Sincerely,
Dr. Rose A. Allen
Microsoft Promotion Award Team

Lisa Dale wrote that I must contact
DELUXE COURIER (Worldwide Courier)
241 Horton Road
West Drayton
Middlesex
London,
United Kingdom.
Tel: +44 704 571 3237
Fax:+44 704 571 2819
Email:customerservice@deluxe-courier.com

I tried to phone the above number as well as a “personal number” a Mr Victor Klein of Deluxe Courier sent me. An automated message informed me that neither number was “on the network”. In other words these telephone numbers don’t apparently exist.

Victor Klein, at Deluxe Courier, then requested from me my “delivery profile” which I emailed him. He then told me to send by Western Union a minimum of £400 to Derrick Hopkins (Accounting Officer).
241 Horton Road
West Drayton Middlesex,
London, United Kingdom.

And that after confirmation of that, within at least 116 hours my packet containing certified check would be delivered to me at my residential address.

I would like to contact Bill Gates about this. And see if he has been handing out millions of pounds to quite a few “2007 winners”, if I am to judge from many similar Microsoft congratulatory letters posted on Complaints website.

I would also like to contact the UK Fraud Squad at Scotland Yard to find out if anyone has actually wired delivery money requested, and then never heard from either the Courier Service or Microsoft Promotion Team.

Dear Sir,

I have just received a familir lottery winnings notifications purported to be from Microsoft Windows, similar to that received by Dr Rose A. Allen.

I have been receiving similar winning notifications for many times. The latest was from the so-called Microsoft Promotions Award Team based in London, UK, with lisadale@msonlinecorporations.com mail address.

I am asking similar questions posed by Dr Rose Allen to you Sir if what we received are real or a mere familiar scams.

For your information, I have had similar experiences as Dr Allen in the past that came from various places in Europe and mainly from the UK>

Would you enlighten me on these?

For your information, too, I have also received mails requesting me submit as many yahoo mail addresses as possible to you/your organisation in return for cheques payment to senders via the mail. Is this true, too?

I am ex graduate student of the University of Washington, Seattle.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
mansal damha

This is just another phising scam. Even if they don't get any money out of you its ok to them as they've gotten your personal information and probable make some bucks by selling your personal info to some marketing agencies! Don't fall into all these crap!

Count me in as yet another who received the phishing scam from the "Microsoft Awards Department" in the UK.
As powerful a man as is Bill Gates, I would expect him to find action, legal or otherwise, to stop this. I can only imagine how many have fallen prey. Microsoft: put your money to good use...hire a lawyer to defend all of those who put faith and trust in your company!

I myself am a recipient of such an email, I was shocked at first but came to my senses immediately, who would in the right frame of mind just issue you a winning prize of such a propotion? It sounds surreal but I would rather not get my hopes up too high...I have just wrote in to a certain Ms Vicki Abraham regarding this and I believe I would be getting the same reply as you guys out there have received...that is to check out with a courier service and pay a payment before getting any certificate...and mind you, the certificate could be a hoax and for the amount paid by you, it would be better off to buy a new digital camera worth US$400 like the new Panasonic Lumix FZ18 or the Olympus 570 uz...that comes with a 20X zoom. Hehehe...anyway, if anyone of you really did get such an amount, do remember to give us all a treat.
