    There is no such lottery - it is a 419 scam. Visit to learn more about 419 scams. Do NOT phone those numbers, they are all international redirect numbers, it has NOTHING to do with Microsoft and the "Barrister" will be a (probably) Nigerian scam artist.

    Hint - Barclay Bank do NOT use free webmail addresses, do not bother complaining to them. Seriously, read

    Interesting... how a company like "Barclays Bank" and "MicroSoft" would use a "" E-Mail account. What's wrong with their website email?
    RED FLAG!!!
    Quite obviously a SCAM...
    And the ENGRISH they use is also a dead giveaway...
    No competent company would hire peeps can't speak decent English to work for them in terms of high-profile jobs such as the ones mentioned here.

    This has to be one of the oldest, lamest and most-known scams in the book. No one wins a lottery on the Web, certainly not by e-mail.

    It is quite surprising how Organizations like MICROSOFT/YAHOO/BMW/and some other famous Institutions have been quoted in the multi-million Awards/Lotteries/etc. in the e-mails which have been sent to various innocent persons for squeesing of their money in the name of Bank Transfer/Courier expenses etc. despite the fact that the e-mail owners are not aware about anything of such fraud or scam. Lured by huge amount offered by these scammers, the poor or otherwise innocent people are tempted to proceed further with the activities crambling into pauper state of affairs. In my case also, there were and are several such mails pop up. Initially, I too, attempted to respond to two such scams which ultimately turned to be futile. Even these scammers are also using the Logos of the Big and reputed Organisations for this purpose. In some cases, it will be in the form of a WILL of a deceased person who wanted to disburse a huge amount amongst some poor people and for this purpose, the scammers produce even the scanned copy of the documents which would seem like originals. Poor people are cheated and thrown out of gear. Is there nobody to look into these kinds of activities. If a person has won a Lottery or Award, if it is genuine, why can's these scammers send the money after deducting the required amount from the price winning amount, more particularly, when they say that the draft/cheque has already been given to a particular Bank, being the conductors such huge scame!? It is high time that such frauds/scams should be put an end to by seriously looking into the matter. These kinds of scams are also happening in employment also. The employees are informed via e-mail and in response thereto, huge amounts are being taken from such innocent people. A friend of mine has lost almost all of his savings and now he is in total bankruptcy with no help pouring from any part. In my opinion, at any cost, these activities are to be curbed immediately and the culprits should be booked and appropriate action should be taken by the concerned. It appears that the Organisations/Companies/Banks etc. are also not bothered about such activities. Any how, this is a great cheating of innocent people whiich should find its eternal end!
