    I too myself have the same e-mail. Just wounder where to check about if this is a scam. I've send $780.00 for the delivery chargers through weston union, when that was done, a few days later i was inform to pay a sum on $5600 to the inland revenue for tax. That really upset me, that they never informed me of such payment before hand. I am still waiting and woundering if i should send that kind of money to these people. If there is anyone out there that can help me. Please contact me [email protected]

    I also received these emails a few days ago, and i was suspicious from the beginning. What is this, is this for real or not? I even asked this Mr. or Dr. as he call himself, Hackett Jack, if this is a scam or not and he replied back that it is no scam and that i did win the 850, 000.00GBP.

    I am still not comfortable with this. I tried to get hold of the Courier company and the contact numbers they mentioned does not exist! I even send an eamil to a Mr. Morris Adams and he did not respond to it.

    Why does somebody want to hurt others they dont even know by taking the little paycheck from them that is sometimes just enough to put bread on the table for supper?! This is a sick world we live in!

    If this courier person comes to South Africa with my prize and i have to pay for clearance, while they said in the email that he have the ability to pass all border lines and customs, why must we pay for his release from customs? I will not pay any money for my own winnings before i did not see it! This person can stay at customs and become an illegal immigrant for all i care!

    Seeing is believing!

    Cheers

    I have also reveived these emails and was suspicious from start. I am working for an Investigation Unit and always take things like this with a pinch of salt. I have also asked the person Hackett Jack, who forwarded me these emails if this is for real, if it was a scam or not and if it is a scam he must inform me.

    I have read some of the comments and what i can make out of it is that, you have to pay money for clearance and never receive your winning after that. I thought that this person delivering these winnings got a pass to get over any border or pass any custom. If that is so, why do we have to pay to get him/her to pass customs.

    I really dont get this. I am not even excited about this, i tried to contact Mr. Morris Adams and could not get through to the contact numbers and he did not even reply to the email i have send.

    Something is really fishy here, If this person comes to South Africa with my prize and i have to pay for my winnings, he must just take his little security box and return to where he comes from or sit at customs and become an illegal immigrant.

    Why do people want to hurt others they dont even know like this. Go and earn your money man like we do everyday. It is sometimes just enough to put bread on the table for supper and they wanna take that little bit from us! I first wanna see the money before i pay anybody anything.

    UNBELIEVABLE!

    This really bites! If all of these comments are true then something needs to be done about this microsoft award team!
    I know that there are people out there like me that do not have anything and these people raise our hopes and then tear us down with bull...
    Bill Gates is one of the richest men in the world and all this shows is that he has no regards for feelings!
    I have been up all night over me having "won" a million British pounds and now that I have read these comments about this it really makes me believe that nothing good will ever happen to/for me. People like this make me want too say to heck with it all and just go ahead and end my life.

    Thank you for this and I truly mean it from the bottom of my wallet!!!
    I've heard of scams and con artists but this one cuts the cake!
    I'm wondering if Mr. Bill Gates has a "Microsoft Award Team" ?
    Yeah! the one that doesn't exists. I use to live in Seattle Washington and sure enough Mr. Gates would of had some kind of announcement about some "Microsoft Award Team" giving out 1, 000, 000.00 just for having an e-mail or whatever.
    Boy, what some people would do just to get money.
    For the root of all evil is "MONEY". That's when you use it to deliberately want to hurt other people in the long run.
    Too bad for them, because what goes around, comes around and your days are numbered. How about those numbers Mr. Williams Harlen and Mr. Andy Johnson. You shouldn't have to pay for a paper cheque if it gets sent in the mail but true maybe for the liability of insurance through a real "Courier". So, this is a relief for me to know that there are some good people out there who are willing to share information on bad people who hurt others with their lies and deceptions. But I do wish the best for those who really can use a break in this STRESSFUL world that we live
    in. Take care everyone and keep your sanity.
    Thanks Ms. Leasau (aka Mae)
