BOGUS!!!(isnt Microsoft a corporation not an Incorporation?)

Dear Winner.

Compliment of the season,
This is Mrs. Rose Raul your claims agent from the Microsoft Lottery Board i
have deposited your winning cheque of 500, 000, 00GBP for delivery since the
bank and has refused to contact you for delivery, I have left for Africa
(Nigeria) for some seminar so i have deposited a Confirmable Bank Draft
500, 000, 00GBP with the Ups Courier Plc for delivery i have also paid for
delivery. I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your
Confirmable Bank Draft of 500, 000, 00GBP, but I did not hear from you since
that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with UPS COURIER SERVICE,
Abuja, Nigeria before I travelled out of the country for a 3 Months Course
in Nigeria and I will not come back till 2009. What you have to do now is to
contact the UPS COURIER SERVICE with your details below:

FULL NAMES:
TELEPHONE:
POSTAL ADDRESS:
CITY:
STATE:
COUNTRY:

As soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you
because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the
delivering Charge,
Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it
is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.


The only money you will send to the UPS COURIER SERVICE to deliver your
Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is (60 Pounds) only,
being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.

Again, don't be deceived by any body to pay any other money except (60
Pounds). I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know
when you
will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact the UPS
COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your Draft with this information
bellow;

Contact Person: Mr. Clement Peter
Manager UPS COURIER SERVICE Nigeria
Email Address: ups.courier1@live.com
Tel/FAX: +[protected]

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct
telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask
them to give you the tracking number to enable you track package over there
and know when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again, try to
contact them as soon as you
receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their
Security Keeping fee of (60.Pounds) for their immediate action. You should
also let
me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.

NOTE: Dont contact the Ups Courier if you know you are not ready to claim
your Confirmable Bank Draft of 500, 000, 00GBP.


Yours Faithfully

Уважаемые господа! Я получил извещение по электронной почте, что компания FACEBOOK наградила меня денежным призом в размере 100 тысяч фунтов стерлингов. После этого ко мне начали приходить электронные письма из фирмы DHL Express Post. Господа из этой фирмы предлагали оплатить заранее 349 фунтов стерлингов за услуги в доставке моего приза. Все это похоже на мошенничество. Прошу помочь выяснить, имеют ли они право требовать от меня оплату вперед (заранее).
С уважением, Анатолий Косянчук, г. Львов, Украина
