The first email was sent to me by Microsoft Lottery Incorporation" <[protected]@bellsouth.net. I was told to complete some information and to forward it to Adam Stockwim [protected]@yahoo.co.uk he said that I won and that i need to contact the courier company to know how much I would have to pay to claim my prize money - Morgan Cole" <[protected]@yahoo.co.uk.

I thought it was a scam from starters... but I thought I'd check... in no lottery in the world... you need to pay money whatever amount it is... to get your money... so if you get that kind of offer... beware!!!

    The Microsoft Windows lottery has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, this friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Microsoft lottery has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the cancelling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

    This office will not be responsible for any outstanding fees. Services rendered by the Courier Services are to be paid by you and not the lottery board, for the fact that the lottery organisers didn't make any provision for any upcoming expenses, regarding delivery of parcel or any such.

    Have it in mind that your won prize cannot be deducted from because a cheque has already ben issue in your name, also this is because the total amount has been insured to the real value .This is to protect winners and to avoid misappropriation of funds.

    Congratulation once more!!!

    I receive 3 or 4 of this winning emails a day. Also numerous letters for me to help someone move money to the united states so they can split it with me OR even some that the person is soon to die and they want to give me their money as they know I will help people with it. If I do not get on line for several days I have dozens of these letters. What can be done about this.??

    Few days back i received an email that i won 1million pound from yahoo msn lottery incorporation. I was told to contact a courier company in fulham England fro delivery of my draft . The company is only willing to deliver the draft on the grounds that I've paid the delivery expenses, they don't accept cash on delivery. Please is this true and does yahoo organize such lotteries without we knowing.

    Regards,
    Peter.
