    Good Day,

    My name is Mrs. Pretorius. I received the same e-mail and was very exited. Until i found out it was only a big scam. I was told to pay a amount of money to get my cheque here in South Africa from the UK. I e-mailed Microsoft and the World wide courier company in the UK to confirm this winnings and delivery and i only found out that was one big scam... and it almost cost me a lot of money!

    I too received the same e-mail couple of days back. Since I had doubt on the credibility of this mail, I browsed various sites to found that this is only a big scam.

    So, dear ones, be aware if you receive any such e-mail. Don't ever take any initiative without verifying.

    I have got the same mail on 24 Oct and for a min I was like in the seventh heaven then checked the site, found to be a absolute scam.. the people sending such mails should be sued by the govt. And appropriate action must be taken against them. Pls be cautious and definitely report or complaint is truly necessary..

    I received the same kind of email. It was my first time. Because of my curiosity and doubts, wanting to know their purpose of doing this, I complied by sending my scanned passport by mail. I did not thought about the possibility of my identity to be misused. It was a mistake!

    I received this mail too. I would think that Yahoo/Msn should be able to confirm this as at first it looks like from yahoo/ Msn Micrsoft itself and when to check the courier company. It really looks real. I don't know what to do yet

    Best way to get back at this scam is to flood the email address with junk mail - I entered THEIR information into as many FREE STUFF online accounts as possible. Maybe its not the politically correct way to deal with fraud mail - but it was FUN and made me feel GOOD!

    I received the email on 13/02/08. Only today that I read it. God I was in cloud nine. Soon after I regain my sanity my friend and I search through FBNSA and microsoft lottery award and realise that it is a scam. I even call the agent and ask about it whether it is a scam or not, the person voice very angry. He replied if you want to know further just fax the details to him. If Bill Gates so generous everybody will live happily ever after like a fairy tales. Bye.
