    They should be sued. The one I received has different contact names from the above post, and even have the nerve to note warnings of pending charges. They try to make you believe it's not a scam as you can see below. I hate scam scums.

    I just got the same email from a Mr. Donald Scofield, the handling officer of the said lottery.

    I'm just wondering, does the Microsoft Company know this scam? It seems that this scam or whatever it is, is destroying the company's reputation.

    I hope the people from the Microsoft Company will do something about this.

    I would never send money to them if they asked for it.

    I have 2 so called "Lottery Winning E-mails". The first one from Donald Scofield, and the second from John Mall. Of course almost got fooled into believing it but I've found that even if I did win anything, why in the hell would it be half way around the world?? I also found a few spelling and grammar mistakes in these letters some are more obvious than other, but yeah that would tell you something too and for people to consider if anyone else gets these stupid e-mails.

    The bogus lottery scam thread that I received is below.

    They way that you know that this is a scam is that nobody in their right mind would ever give away this kind of money to an unsuspecting and uninvolved person whom we are all pegged out to be, poverty and hard times being what they are for the majority of people.

    I have not subscribed to nor have I ever entered any one of these lotteries, and yet the scammers (sp?) will not cease in attempting to defraud me of my money, this is your proof.

    This is one is soo stupid that it would even assume to place a response email on the thread with a .AIM.com account belonging to AOL.

    It seems foolish for microsoft to not take more interest in this scam. It is their Brand name that is being used. And regardless of the fact microsoft is not involved, people will remember the name microsoft.
    But not in a good way!
    Also, microsoft, being a giant in this industry, has a lot more power to actually do something about these scammers. About the only thing the public can do is add complaints to message boards and write to their congressman. Microsoft has a lot more clout.

    Hello Everyone. I have been scammed before and I've tried reporting it to online investigators and I am hoping that the FBI will catch these scammers and punish them to the FULL extent of the law. Everytime I receive these emails it pisses me off to the point where I wish the person was next to me so I could bash their skull open and pull their head off. I know you feel the same way about these low life scums. I don't know how they can live with themselves. Their actions are totally inhumane. I hope they burn in HELL!! Be cautious at all times my friends.

    Anyone who thinks such emails could be real should not be on the web. I just got one and the contact email is a Gmail account! Really people, Microsoft and Google are competitors! These people have NOTHING to do with Microsoft and Microsoft has no responsibility to police them. The basic rule of, "If it seems to good to be true then it probably is", remains valid. There is no one out there waiting to drop large sums of money in your lap. Crooked bankers trying to embezzle abandoned accounts will also not seek you out to assist them in their illegal schemes. Stop believing in the Tooth Fairy and grow up!
