    Attention Winner,


    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. This is to inform you that your winning sum has just been sent to you via western union money transfer and you are to verify this on the western union money transfer website for confirmation. See the western union website for confirmation of the transfer of your winnings via western union:


    https://wumt.westernunion.com/asp/orderStatus.asp?country=global


    Sender First Name: Wilbert
    Sender Last Name: Breymeier
    The MTCN# is [protected]


    For confirmation of the transfer of your winning funds to you, you are advise to track the funds online using the western union site for confirmation. After tracking of the funds, you are advise to locate any western closer to you for pick up. After check of status, you would see it written boldly Available for pick up by receiver which means you can now go to any western union office close to you for pick up but, before the pick up you are required to pay for the cost of transfer and the tax clearance by the HSBC LOCAL BANK as it could not be deducted from your won funds.

    The cost of Transfer and clearance fee is £600.00 ( Six Hundred pounds ). and you are also advise to locate any western union close to you and make the payment to the account our account officer with the below information:

    Mrs. Larry Brown
    Address: 15 embassy way London, UK.


    After making the payment, you are to send the following information via email as they appear on western union transfer slip:


    1. Sender's Full Name:
    2. Sender's Address:
    3. Amount sent
    4. Western Union Control Number MTCN
    5. Text question and Answer

    There must be text question and answer and the question must be "color" and answer must be "Black"

    Notice: your won funds is now ready for you to pick it up but you can not do that until we send to you the text question and answer which you will also see on the western union form as you proceed to send the £600.00 ( Six Hundred pounds ) to our account officer and mail the transfer information to us via mail. You are advise to be very careful with your winning information and do not disclose to anyone even the western union agent until we send you the text question and answer after you must have send to us the £600.00 ( Six Hundred pounds ).

    Once again, Congratulations to you and your lucky family.

    Wouldnt it be nice to win 5.5 million great british pound, whilst I dont really care if this is a scam, because if I did win they can send me the check and deduct and cost from the winning sum, but if microsoft allow these scammers to access my email address then they should be responsible to compensate me.

    It is up to the Microsoft Co-operation to control their site and investigate these promotions for their customers, who of no fault of thier own are led to believe they have won.

    These are SCAM/SPAMS and they have it worked out to a T. Can anyone Picture Microsoft giving away this amount of money I think not. It is about time Microsoft Did something to clear their name and get the Police involved in these SCAMS and Jail the persons involved.

    I received a similar email. Out of curiousity, I went so far as to even call the int'l # that was provided. And the operator was unprofessional (answered the phone like "hello", when I asked for the rep name that was listed on the email, he was like "yeah", sounded like he was reading from a script and like someone was coaching/telling him what to say. They didn't even have a British accent, more Hispanic. I kept asking about the validity of the email and where was he located, he never answered the questions. He kept saying he would send a follow up email on what to do next, which he did, but that emailed started asking for banking info and a copy of a liscense. I was like oh heck no. I did a live chat w/ a rep under the Microsoft official website and they said this was a scam, Microsoft is not sponsoring anykind of giveway/sweepstakes or award or drawing of cash prizes in any way. In the back of my head I knew but the email that was sent from these scammers was well thought out and made it really sound official. Oh well, would have been nice and just in time for X-mas.

    What makes it so hard for me, is because I did not even have the money they asked me to send. I had to burrow the whole $520.00 US from my cousin, and promised I will re-pay her very soon. I am so hurt; What can I do?
