    i am totally confused. day after day i receive similar mails from many such company's. its becoming a nuisance. but when i see the name yahoo/msn i am tempted to believe it. however i have replied to them to claim the money lets see what happens. on searching i have found lots of such frauds using such names as yahoo/msn and windows. why don't these giant companies do something to stop this.

    I'm also getting these kinds of mails on regular basis. Actually I beleived the last one which came from sharon_gray08@yahoo.com.hk. But when it was told to contact the Courier Office n the delivery charge is my own responsibility I really doubted. Then I searched in the net for the sender Id. And thankfully I came to know it was nothing but a scam mail as expected. Infact the reference number given to me through mail was same like another one who recently posted one comment. So the picture is preety clearer to everyone. I also want the people behind this should be strictly punished. The companies (like Yahoo, MSN, Microsoft) should take strict action agaunst these scammers.
