    I received a similar email as the previous above. Against my better judgment I attempted to answer with the information they requested but was not successful. The email address was invalid and was not successfully received on the other end. I began looking for something on the web to aid in my quest to find out the legitimacy of this award team and I came upon this complaint page.

    We always hope but I knew it was to good to be true. I just want to know what these scammers are gaining?

    I think that a company as powerful and ethical as Microsoft would take the time the pursue and prosecute the criminals who are ripping off people using the Microsoft corporate image!! Come on, Mr. Gates, you know that there have been innocent, trusting people who have fallen prey to these scammers.

    I also received notification of "winning a lottery". I figured it was a scam (but to be honest my hopes were raised). I believe that someone needs to bring these criminals to task. And if they are caught, count me in on the class action suit!!!

Now i intend to complain and i request you to go through and save the innocent people from the attractive clutches of these type of scammers.I have gone through the website fraud aid.com.
