    Microsoft Award Team - You won!
    Canada

    Yeah, sure. I won a zillion pounds/euros/dollars. The company uses microsoft as a conspirator but yet has an email address of yahoo.uk.

    I guess it cannot buy a more believable email carrier.

    Microsoft Award Team - Scam for sure!
    South Africa

    I received an email notification from one Steve Smith on behalf of the Microsoft Award Team UK to the effect that I'm a lucky winner of 1 000 000 British Pounds and that I must contact Halifaxtelebank.com to arrange for the payment, which I did, to see what happens. Instead of a reply from the bank, I received another (identical) email from "Microsoft Award Team".

    Beware people!

    Microsoft Award Team - Misrepresentation
    United States

    I received notification that I had won $500,000 pounds from Microsoft Award Team. I believe this is a scam and not actually from Microsoft.

    I just thought you should know. If this is legitimate, please notify me at my husband's e-mail address:
    41 streeetrod@comcast.net. I will save the e-mail I received and forward it to you upon request.

    The e-mail address I was to reply to is: sirbenmoore.claims101@hotmail.com and
    sirbenmoore.claims102@hotmail.com.

    Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Priscilla Clark

    Its, really a Scam, should be avoided because they are using such prestigious company name in the scam, and need to be reprimanded .

    I dearly urge such scams should be avoided and checked by the internet criminal forums.

    Microsoft Award Team - False use of branding
    United Kingdom

    This company used the actual MS brand - isn't this illegal? They said I should email the information to to Inter Link Express Courier to receive 500,00 Pounds. I would only be charged a processing fee.

    I also received a notification for £500, 000. They requested me to give some information to make the claim. I was to communicate with a Mr George Simmon on ctc number +447045793912, which i did once and when i heard the ascent at the end of the line, i realized that it was fake, so i stopped entertaining these "rien a faire".

    I think these people should get a real job, an stop abusing and ruining the reputation of Microsoft, and also toying with people. Also Microsoft should find a way to protect it's brand.

    Yours sincerely,
    Katia

    I received a similar letter like the one shown, saying I won $ 1 Million Dollars. The letter said congratulations! Mrs. Linda Rose, Vice President of Microsoft Promotion Team. Is this for real? I am in dire straights financially and could really use this. The letter also said to contact Mr. Wilson More Tel:00-44-703-191-86-54. If this is not for real, please contact the FBI for using your company. Thank you. Ms. Ethel P. Sutton
