    If you notice, all their contact details, especially the email address are obvious fakes - if they are going to yahoo mail, hotmail, etc and not direct to a business address, it is almost guaranteed a fake, if they require you to provide personal details - another sign of a fake, if you haven't entered a competition - another likely fake, almost all of these have bad spelling and grammar errors . . another sign, if they sound like they are trying to name drop - another sign of a fake, if they don't provide a phone number local to your country - another sign of a fake. . .etc. . . People need to be more awake and stop thinking they will get something for nothing!! And one last thing as I flick through most of these submissions .. . . "Dear Sir/Madam, Dear Winner, Dear "anything other than your full name" ". If they don't know who you are they aren't going to give you millions of dollars!!!

    Anyways, I'm supposed to be working - as I haven't won 10, 000, 000 Euros in the latest Microsoft Jackpot for endangered furry animals with big ears and sharp claws, I must work for my money.

    Microsoft discontinued the Zune. All of us are upset and think these ### should reciprocate. Now we in a recession have to buy the Xbox at 500.00 a pop and the zune customers did not get any discounts tward the units. Angry with Microsoft for this complete money hungry company that screwed all zune customers. I myself will move on from this company in every way!!! Not that they give a Crap but they have lost alll respect!!! Chris cmtbs@email.com

    Well, once again Microsoft has succeeded in making ### of themselves. I am referring to the new Windows 10 upgrade. They already managed to assinine themselves with Windows Vista, but that wasn't good enough for them. Windows 10 is slow, too confusing, took way too long to install, and not worth the dynamite to blow 10 and Vista to the planet Pluto. Fortunately, a restore point is made for you before the upgrade starts, m so you can roll back to Windows 7 or Windows 8. As for me, I will stick to those. Thanks for nothing Microsoft.
