  • It is Definitely. Not. True.  Microsoft does not do Lotteries, people, we do Software and, thankfully, Xboxes :)

  • Guys,

    Wednesday, October 13, 2010 5:34 AM
  • I just received the same e-mail today.  It's a hoax!!  My e-mail had a word document attached, which I DID NOT OPEN.  Sometimes opening a file can actually be a way to launch malware on your computer.  Also, the "ciudad.com.ar" on the end of Dr William's e-mail is for an Argentinian domain.  

     

    Don't do it.

  • I received the same mail and i continued the procces until they asked for bank accounts and payments to be made.When i went to WESTERN UNION to make the payment of 460 euros they stopped me from doing so as they had the info from previous situations. I believe that these people should be punished by some authority

  • Oh Gosh! I thought I'm really the winner but here are a lot of people. So guys we should equally divide the prize money.....................Ha ha ha

    I've also received a certificate,

    One thing is obvious, when we didn't take part in any competition or didn't buy any lottery how could we win a prize.........................

    the same type of scam I had received from "UK Lotto Org"

    Take care and enjoy u all........
