    Microsoft E - Mail Promotions - Lottery scam!
    Australia

    I have just received the same kind of email. I have followed the instructions and emailed the nominated person. Everything was very smooth, until they asked me to pay for the postage of the alleged cheque and certificate, which came to $850.00 US. I laughed at my self for being so naive.

    The Microsoft Internet E-mail lottery Awards is sponsored by our CEO/Chairman, Bill Gates and a consortium of software promotion companies.The Intel Group, Toshiba, Dell Computers and other International Companies. The Microsoft internet E-mail draw is held periodically and is organized to encourage the use of the Internet and promote computer literacyworldwide. The Microsoft Windows lottery has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers.

    As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Microsoft lottery has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

    Once again on behalf of all our staff,
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!
