  • Dear Sir/ Madam,

    Sweepstakes marking Mid-year 2009 anniversary we rolled out over
    US$400,419,864 for our commemorative Anniversary Draws. Participants for the
    draws were randomly selected and drawn from a wide range of web hosts which we
    enjoy their patronage.

    The selection was made through a computer draw system attaching personalized
    email addresses to ticket numbers. If you ignore this message, you will
    definitely regret it later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet
    companies & in effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remain the most
    widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.

    number 008795727498 with serial numbers MIC-AOL/8303/09 and drew the Lucky
    numbers 04-18-35-38-53-46 (12) which subsequently won you £ 1,000,000 (One
    Million Great Britain Pounds) as one of the jackpot winner in this draw. You
    have therefore won the entire winning sum of £ 1,000,000 (One Million Great
