    Greetings,

    I too have recieved the same mail stating that I have won £86, 00, 000.
    They have provided me a pracel number which is absolutely same as one of the members who have posted their concerns {PARCEL/NUM/2690}. Now how could be my Parcel Number similar to the other winner's?

    I raised my concern that since I didnt have enough money to pay for courier charges that will it be possible for my funds to be transfered to my bank account directly.
    The Claims Manager denied the proposal as they dont have enough resources to fulfill account transfer facitilties.

    The amount is huge and undoubtly will make my financial condition much stronger but I am more concern to pay the heavy courier charges which seems to be a doubtful matter.
    I sent a laptop charger to my relatives in Switzerland thru a courier service which charged me merely 800 Rupees (INR).

    I insist all you friends to verify Microsoft and ask them if there is any such promotion or lottery which has been commenced by them in UK. Provide them all the information that is required about this lottery company and help in fixing this at the earliest.

    Kindly provide an appropriate information on this channel so that we all may stay in loop.

    Regards to you all.
