Most people will know that it’s fake, but what’s makes me laugh out loud is that their so-called “Secretary” is using Yahoo! mail. A Microsoft staff using Yahoo mail? Guess those spammers aren’t having enough wisdom, this makes their spam/scam fails badly.

Note: According to my research, this is a SCAM. If you reply to the email they sent to you, they will request for your bank information. For your safety, NEVER give out any of your information to the so-called “Agent” to avoid any loses. Just bear in mind, Microsoft staff will never use Yahoo mail, and there is no free lunch in this world. You may want to refer here.

Update:
Reader Adrian had contact Microsoft’s CS, and here’s the reply regarding to this hoax.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Microsoft Online Customer Service.

I understand form your message that you received a winner notification e-mail. I realize the importance of your issue and will help you in reaching the appropriate resource of support.

The mail that you have forwarded is indeed a hoax. Unfortunately, there are many such hoaxes and frauds being sent through e-mail.

The message you received is most likely a “phishing” attempt. Phishing is a type of deception designed to steal your money or your identity, by tricking you into disclosing information like credit card numbers, passwords, or other confidential personal information. Online scam artists do this by sending fake e-mail that appears to come from a source you would normally trust – like your bank or credit card company. As a general online practice, we strongly recommend that you do not respond to requests for personal information via e-mail.

  3. 99.9% emails of this kind are scams. I’m sure you guys did not trust these claims – or you won’t be landing on this page researching the truth of these emails. Good luck.

  4. Help, I got one of these mails too. :( How on earth do you stop them………..this was through a hotmail adress…spam mail. By the way the amount has increased; 1,350,000.00 great Britain Pounds.

  5. I personally find these things inapropriate, and incredibly stupid, I feel very sorry for the person who actually thinks there is a free lunch somewhere, and now even I am emailing a person I have never met, so what does that really say about me

  6. Now I receive their information every day.

  9. I revieved such email, I know there is no thing is true, but I followed them just to see where the game well end.

So how it comes, i won a very huge prize but they can not cut the charge from it, HOW STUPID THEY ARE?

  10. I am stefano soligno the suppose winner of one of the awards according to Mr Poul Wool and Mr Steve Leo; I want to know how much is true this fantastic story and how you can help in the complication occured for the money transfer.

  11. If you wanted to test out how true they are, give out fake informations. They will reply you with more information, and if they demand an amount of money before they can send you those “awards” – that’s a scam. There’s such case too in my country, but that’s not via email, but sms. Those scammers says they won a great amount of money from a contest of a popular TV show in my country, and they need to proceed them the processing fee before they will have their prize.

    So far, many has been scammed. Say no to greed and work with such case wisely. Freedew do make sense.

  13. What do they insist? And in most scam cases, they will tell you there’s a limitation of time and you have to do it quickly. What they do is actually simple. Says you won a great amount of money so you’ll be attracted. Later on, ask for some money before they send you the money. And there will be a time limitation. If you don’t pay the amount by sometime, they will forfeit your award. This makes you have no time to think about it. As I’ve said, these are all scams. To verify, just simply ask Microsoft or any other company they say they are from and ask if there’s such contest.

    Do not send them any money

  14. I received this e-mail I receive alot of scam mail and they are all the same. Nice huh they cant work for a living so they try to take the money from people that work hard for it or the ones that barely get by. Some times I string them along to the point that they think that they are going to get something out of me then I pull the plug.

  15. Last mail I received was from their agent with name
    Ivan Andrejev. This is russian name.
    Now I understand fact that russian hackers so try to receive important information about real people, their bank accounts i.t.c.
    This is reason why they send so many letters over the world with this scam.
    Do not send them real information!

  16. I got an email like that almost the same but the contact email address is different.

  21. Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Online Customer Service.

    I understand form your message that you received a winner notification e-mail. I realize the importance of your issue and will help you in reaching the appropriate resource of support.

    The mail that you have forwarded is indeed a hoax. Unfortunately, there are many such hoaxes and frauds being sent through e-mail.

    The message you received is most likely a “phishing” attempt. Phishing is a type of deception designed to steal your money or your identity, by tricking you into disclosing information like credit card numbers, passwords, or other confidential personal information. Online scam artists do this by sending fake e-mail that appears to come from a source you would normally trust – like your bank or credit card company. As a general online practice, we strongly recommend that you do not respond to requests for personal information via e-mail.

    To help you identify e-mail hoaxes, here is some additional information:

    - Microsoft does not send unsolicited e-mails that include attachments. If you ever receive an unsolicited e-mail with an attached executable claiming to be from Microsoft, it is best to delete it immediately.

    - To verify that an e-mail message that claims to be from Microsoft is genuine, visit the following Web site:

  29. Dear Sir,

    just yeasterday i received a similar email it show microsoft logo. It shows that i won a 500,000 pound esti.
    but i do not weather it valid or just a fake email. would you please reply on my message to clearify the matter.

    you assistance in this matter is really apprciated.\

    regards,
    young

  30. It isn’t too hard to conclude if the email is a real or false one. It’s just common sense. Whenever it says Microsoft, it’s false. Microsoft stated it clearly that they did not organize any event that will win you such money. Therefore, the email you received is just a scam.

  31. This is Bull Shit!

    I’ve received the same mail like many others have. When i read it I was shocked “how come I can win such a huge money without putting any effort?” It looks like a Hoax and totally Fraud.

  32. Hello Sir/Madam
    I got this mail twice.Is it a spam mail or realy i am a winner of microsoft award.
    Please reply me as soon as possible.If it is true please give me suggestions about it.
    Thanks

  35. Dear friends!!
    Thanks to your information I did not make a huge mistake because, at first, I was tempted to fill the required form out and send it right away. I appreciate the time and effort you put to keep the public well informed about fraudulent messages through the Internet. Once again, thank you very much for your support!! If you want me to send you the original mail I got from this “Microsoft Award Team”, please let me know and I will.

  36. i got one message about the microsoft award dated 28/4/2007. it tells about the award amount 900,000 pounds. I think it is absolutely spam.

  37. i just received the same email letter about microsoft promotion n winning notification today 3rd of may 2007

    so pls if posible the realy microsoft take action to notify thats kind of email are wrong, to protect microsoft reputation

    rgds
    hadi widjaja

  38. i got the same mail and get surprised to see that i won such a huge money……
    but when i read comments from you people, i came to know that it is a big spam….thanks to all

  39. These are spam emails..Never reply on such fraud emails.They can use private data like credit card number ,password etc..So, Beware of them.If u receive such emails,delete it quickly..As nothing comes free in this world….u should know that

  40. Too good to be true thing! I went with the flow and gave some (false) data required…. the catch is, I have to remit processing fee of $5,000.00…huh??!!! No way!!!

  41. I have received two emails- one from Microsoft Promotion, second from UK National Lottery, both advised – to file your claim please contact your fiduciary agent. How can I get them punished for tricking innocent peopie ?
    Any suggestion from any one. Kindly contact on my email. I shall be very grateful

  42. this is such bullshit. people sitting around with nothing better to do than try to trick or fool other people. microsoft should get off their ass and file a lawsuit against the ones who are responsible for trashing their name.

  43. This is a mail message I recieved! I actually thought I might have won something but now reading this I can see that it’s a scam. I just want to know something – I already replied to these people and they said that, in order to recieve my prize money I only have to pay for the courier? Is this their way of scamming you out of your money? Or would the courier never have come cause they were only looking for my information?

  44. I recieved one of the Microsoft e mails and thought it would be great to win the money they were offering to give me. I followed it up a little by checking the information they gave me for the courier. I phoned directory enquiries and the company name and address, there was no phone number attached to it. (suspicion arises). I also called the british mobile phone number on the letter and i talked to a man that spoke very bad english. I am from Scotland. I then entered the draw name into my search engine and found plenty of people had been sent the same letter with the same winning numbers as me. :ouch: I am very dissapointed that microsoft (as big as they are) can’t stop the e mails that are being circulated in their name. I will be sending my email to postmaster@ yahoo so hopefully they will be able to do something. Thanks for all the information. I hope these guys don’t get a penny. Treat all e mails as spam if you don’t know for sure who they come from. DON’T SEND PERSONAL INFORMATION, MONEY OR BANK DETAILS.

  45. I received one of these winning e-mails almost everyday. Sometimes I reply to see how they will they respond and it always end up asking money.

    Is there any, some sort of police body where we could report this and for them to monitor and eventually put these people behind bars?

  46. i have also got the same mail but when i call these numbers they are talking us regularly !!! but i don’t know why they are doning that !!!

  47. I received the same spam mails for many times these days that the scammers say I won the sums of cash. Why they can spread such frauddulent information on net without an end? Is there any law to govern them and to stop them?

  48. :P

  61. Let’s not think about other aspect, but just some logic. Do you think a Microsoft employee, the giant software company, will use its competitor, Yahoo mail to send out notification to its user? That doesn’t make any sense.

    I hope no one will ask again if their email is false or true. There is no free lunch in the world and before you post your email, I will say it’s a scam.

  62. Dear sir,
    this is for ur kind information that I recd a mail by mrs Lisa Brown that I won microsoft award notification on Brockley, london on the 10th june 2007 prize award -900,000.00GBP.

  63. I replied and gave some personal information like name, date of birth, phone number, address… but no credit card number. Incredibly stupid I know, but does it has any important consequences for me?

  64. Today morning I woke up with tremendous energy with a thought of being billionare in future.But at midnight I can laugh at me and MICROSOFT ,the world reknown company ,unable to find these spammers and help us to get our money.Ha ha

    Everybody siting far in UK and US of such mentatlity,knows that he can play games with indians becasue they may be poor as per their knowlegde but I want to remind them once again that one day we will buy them and make our servants.At that time they will keep their mouth open to catch our spits and satisfy their thirst.

    At last this is my message to indian brothers,as they are not crooks and are most in above list,please donot get excited after receiving such mails.And let us use the internet in the way for which it is in existance.
    Remember,if creater is misusing the creation,let us create it in our own way and mark a good example of mankind.

    • DO NOT ASSUME it is American’s or Brits sending out these scams…if you actually took the time to read the posts on this board, you would find that some of the people actually called the phone numbers listed in the SCAM e-mails and got people on the phone that couldn’t even speak proper english. Let me assure you that American’s and Brits can speak english. Also, I feel no pity whatsoever for anyone who is dumb enough to fall for this. Like so many have said in their posts, it doesn’t take a genius to know that: 1. If you didn’t enter a contest, you can’t win. 2. Microsoft, AOL any other big company wouldn’t be using a Yahoo, or Hotmail account. No one is giving away money to random people on the internet just because you get an e-mail saying they are. Use your brain and you won’t get scammed.

  65. Hi
    I also recieve this mail a lot of time but before get exited use common sence ..first of all if they are giving you one miloin then why not to charities …and why this moneyis giving to you?????and second microsoft staff isnt using yahoo mail adress..so if you reply their mail then they send you information page that they had send you the parcel sopay 500pounds to xyz bank account..actually this all is justa bulshit..hehehhhehehehhe so plz use common sence first
    take care

  66. I received one of those e-mails too :grr: I get them a lot in different styles… As the old addage says “if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is”. The one I got was so unprofessional looking that with the appearance alone sends a red flag. I’m glad that there is information on this out there, and I happened on this site. Always check things out, and never respond or give out personal information. Generally speaking, you would not find any type of lottery that is legitimate that would approach you this way.

  67. Dear Sir,

    I received a mail from microsoft award promotion team on 21st june, to have won a sum of 9 thousand GBP , like my friend Nidhi. My Claiming agent is Mr Richard Masakery Pattrick.

    I have sent my scan copy of PAN no. along with other information. now they are asking 395.00 GBP as their courier charges.

    I am in confusion now. Plzzzzzzzzzzz suggest me what to do now.

    Regards

    • Hello,
      I am in the same case as you. I sent them personal information. Did they steel your identity by using your personal information? What solution did you find to get away of this? Please help me!
      regards,

  68. It is interesting to note that lot of spam mails are sent in the e-mail stating winning of lottery tickets, unclaimed deposits redumption by signing as the next kin of the deceased, a cancern patient who wants to invest money in social organisations etc.
    Is there any methed to trace these time-passers who attempts to misuse the information of a victim and also collect small money in the form of bank charges, courer charges etc. How we can catch them? From where these miscreatents collect emais of othersl?

  69. Dear Microsoft,

    I was a victim of about a dozen of those spams lately, but in one occasion i sent my personal data, like name, address, phones…, and a bank account. No PIN or secret No. given, but should I worry about that ? No credit cards info, can they abuse my data? in what way?

    I’ll appreciate if you can help me with this. Thank you.
    Yours,
    Sherif Samy

  70. I also got this type of mails………just cheak it……

    What a game playing ………………………
    :drink:

    but fially…………………

    I am the winner….
    I know that is a froud. :drink:

  71. Please take this seerius

    becouse I lost my TIME to replay this mails.

    Please stop them.

    I am still resiving that type of worst mails.

    pls help me.

    i need a good adivice.

    Thankyou for cheak this on

  72. All these are spurious mails, evident from following:
    * If they can pay huge prize amount, then why they ask for petty amount towards courier charges, Bank Account opening etc.? Why do not they deduct the same from the prize amount?
    * They do not use mail id of microsoft or sponsor and use Id, say like of XXX.yahoo.co.uk

    How to check them, even if you are not satisfied that they may not be wrong:
    * Provide wrong infomation of Ticket No., Batch No. etc. They are probably going to authenticate your false information. If they do so, it is a simple case of fraud.
    * Put the ticket no., batch no., name of alleged sponsor or fidiciary agent in your search engine and you will be getting never ending array of results and even you will be surprised to see mails written to others, having the same content and even same ticket no., bathch no. as yours.
    * Tell them to retain a substantial sum from the prize or even offer them, say 25% of prize amount, if someone comes personally and deliver the cheque to you in your country, instead of paying petty amount towards courier charges etc. Or even you can say to them, that your own relative or friend, duly authorised by you, will collect the cheque/ cash personally. Look to their response.
    * Ask from them the detail of winners from London. Probably their will be none or spurious people like them only. You can ask from the those spurious people, the copies of Bank Accounts where these huge sums were credited.

    They perform these acts, with following intent:

    Stringent legal actions be taken by big giants like Microsoft or by Government of UK, so that their name is not misused and public is not way-laid. Even sites, like this is a good forum, for educating each other.

Be witty and apply your intelligence, to their moves and continue to perform your duties diligently, not getting affected by the false allurements.

We shall use our human form of life for higher goals, viz. gettiing out of clutches of repeated birth and death, recognising our true constituitional position as a soul and striving to serve the Lord, both on earth and in His abode, after we leave this body or shall follow our own respective religious principles, in true spirit. Otherwise we will be befooled by illusion, like these spam cases.

  73. It rather surprising to observe that once we respond these bullshit lotter winnings, unclaimed deposits who want investment in the country of the person to whom they send emai, . cancer patient who wants support for investment his/her money in amthor place or in a country who received the email, and other sort of gimmicks, various mails start pouring wnich are of the same cetegory. Hence, it is obvious that a group of miscreants are indulged in this type of trade,a soft forgery in thse modus operandi. The receipient of the mail therefore, should very caucious while deeling in this type of mails and play safe.

      They cannot do anything with the bank account number, but its advisable next time not to give any bank account details, coz they are all spam..

    Attn: Alla Naresh,

    In response to your enquiries i use this medium to inform you that we do not have an affiliate courier service in India otherwise we would not have asked for delivery charges in the first instance, delivery is been made directly from the U.K. to India hence the need for the charges to be fully verified before dispatch of winning parcel can be effected, presently all modalities to ensure that this delivery is made has been arranged, all that is needed is your payment for the delivery, we are to render prompt and expeditious service to you as we have an obligation to fulfil.

    As regards account information, our preferred mode of payment is via Western Union Money Transfer which we are informed the facilities for sending money out of your country is not available, and we would not be making it easy if we insist on this mode of payment hence the need for an alternative mode which we deemed easier for you and also your payment can be easily verified. Regarding your mail, Mr. S. Lawrence Thangzom is presently in London and he will be the one who is to deliver your package to you. As soon as the payment is made into to the account provided to you, we be notify by the bank.

    Make the payment as instructed and have your package couriered to you without any form of complication or delay.

    Email us the payment slip as soon as payment is made

  88. So my dear Friends don’t believe this kind of rumours and if u have any more doubts use GOOGLE with search key word like

    microsof/aol the microsoft employee has given explanation

    ThankQ my friends

  89. I received an e-mail just like that also. And the courier service is also a fake e-courier. I contacted the REAL E-COURIER and I had ask if they had an employee by the name of “FRED MARCUS OR ALEXANDRA JOHNSON” and I was told no by the represenative on the live chat. The person thought that sent the letter was a “DONALD GRAY” and the HEAD CUSTOMER SERVICE CARE WAS A “KATHY BRIGGS”.These guys are a bunch of loosers. They claim to be working for Microsoft Promotions yet they have a Yahoo account.

  90. :mad: I noticed also that these people always use the same winning numbers, same address 20 Cravens Park Harlsden and then the courier address 40 Adler street. I mean what the f*** is their problem.

  91. Pingback: Another day, another scam, this time Microsoft is the victim « AccMan

  92. As every one got 1 i got 1 too… just asked myself then am i lucky enuf to win that much of money n that also without doin anything… its just a hoax… the stupid thing is they have the decency to ask for money for giving my prize money..how stupid they can give…

    sory fellas, who got this kind of mail… i know u all really wanted the money.. but trust yourself and earn it..

  93. :mad: I also keep on receiving letters via e-mails regarding a promotions award stating I ahd won again 500,000GBP. Everytime I get a letter it always has the same ticket and batch numbers. I mean how stupid do these people think we are? And get this it’s the same person a Mr. Donald Gray and a Mrs. Kathy Briggs. Like I’ve said and i’ll say it again “

  94. Recently I received a mail from microsoft aol promo informing me about the prize winning information and asked me as usual the submit the particularsto some e-mail address, and finally they asked me to pay corrier charges and insurnace charges, oficourse, i didnot paid anything, and I verified with microsoft web and now I was convinced that Even a big company like Microsoft’sname is also being used for sending spam messages.Ofcourse, this may be one of the experience to be careful in future.However, I have also received no.of other mails from uk lotteryetc, and I thanq verymuch since i have gone through all this I came to know this type of hoax messages.// Sarma Emani

  95. Whoever received a promotions notification DO NOT attempt to fall for this scam. If you noticed to each time that these loosers send an e-mail all of the winning numbers are ALL THE SAME! They are only trying to steal your money and identity.

  96. I recieved one of these e-mails and this was from a Tom Williams but now they changed the REF number now its BTD96807. And because I was taught that sometimes if it sounds to good to be true, than it probably is. So I did a search and found all these coments posted. So thank you everyone for posting these comments. If more people took a couple of minutes to help make these wanna be scam artists more known, maybe innocent people would not be victimized and taken for their hard earned money, (so that these idiots sitting around with nothing better to do, can take peoples money without having to work for it. If they need money that bad haven’t they ever heard of selling plasma, having a yard sale, whatever.

  97. Now they became even smarter. They don’t ask for the money themselfs, but you going to have to pay for the shipping. Cheapest $609. If you want them to transfer that money on your bank account, (open a new one for a $1, don’t give them a regular one), they are asking for 4000 GBR. About $8000… They become smarter and smarter…

    And I tought I’m already a millioner… :(

  98. hi

    i am one among I HAVE RECIEVED THE SAME MAIL. I HAVE SENT SOME PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THEM LIKE NAME ,ADDRESS,COPY OF LICENSEAND SO ON WILL THERE BE ANY PROBLEM ? I AM CONFUSED WAT TO DO PLS ANY ONE SUGGEST ME WAT TO DO?

  99. We also received similar mail. We tried to scrutinise them…… their reply was really poor………. see the language….. it’s poor…….. they are stupids!!!!!! Stupids trying to find other fools!!!!!! Ha ha ha :D :D :D

  100. Hi

    I read all your comments about the Spam mail . I also received lot of mails today . I was totally confused whethet to believe or not. Then – Ihad a doubt why these people are using yahoo ID and not Microsoft ID’s. Anyway now I am very clear that these are spams.

  101. Hi, i recieved the mail, then recieved the information i needed to send them, i rang them (BIG MISTAKE) searched and found this page.

    I would just like to know if anyone knows how much this call costs per minute.

    Thanks

    Andy

  102. I received such mail few days ago. Now I have to think is it truth or not, but it seems theese e-mails are SCAMS.
    I wonder how theese people can do such things.

  103. We too recieved a e-mail saying that we had won 1, 35000 brittsh pounds,
    I suppose it is stupid to think you might get a “real” cash prize from a company like Microsoft that uses Yahoo to mail it, I’m much wiser now! Don’t fall for it!!!

  104. I also received this spam mail with all the necessary info saying I had this miraculous win . Their spelling is not amazing. Take Note

  105. I also recd. this spam mail with all necessary info saying that i had this miraculous win.Their spelling is not amazing.Take note.

  106. I also received this “promotion winner” email today and the senders have got to be kidding! Major tip off of a spam: Microsoft is based in Washington State not London. I scanned some of the previous entries regarding this email and was surprised how many people were not 100% sure this was a phishing email.

  107. You know, I just playing around with them but after they request me to fill in the Personal data, i just copy & paste this discussion to my email and comment as “FYI” after that, no more reply from the “Agent”. Very stupid and what Malay will says “Bodoh macam kambing” to this kind of scammers. But my IT friend mention that if we refuse to receive this kind of email, simply mark as Spam and once mark it, it will forever marked as spam? anybody?? is it the proper way??

  108. hello sir

    i have recived a mail from you ( microsoft corporation) in that one i have win prize, is it right or not…..what you require the data i will all ready send via mail & also what will be the next procedure…

    thanking you sir/ madem

    yours obidient
    SIDDU

  109. Hello sir ,
    i have received email in my yahoo ,says that i have won 5000 England Pounds ,
    and containing Patch Number , Serial Number and Ticket Number .
    the email from Mr.BillyStone the Online Coordinator . is that email is Right Or Not Please Tell Me.

  110. I have recently experienced a problem related to this topic. I began receiving hundreds of returned e-mails a day to my account telling me that the message I was attempting to send was undeliverable. The message was the Microsoft Award Promotion e-mail. The only thing that I can figure out is that someone got into my e-mail account and started sending out these messages.

    If anyone knows anything about how this could happen or what I can do to stop it, I would appreciate the input.

  111. Yeah this is definitely crap! Please do not send these people your information! Please do not be an idiot! And I say that in the nicest way possible lol. I think from now on when you guys get these messages you should just delete them without even opening them. Because if you’ve really won something from a legitimate company like Microsoft they’re going to call your house and they won’t have to ask for your phone number because they’re Microsoft and they can get the information. So just keep in mind, any legitimate company will not send you an e-mail to inform you of a LARGE amount of money you’ve won. I got one of these too a while back and I don’t even open them anymore because it’s a lie and a scam and it’s always gonna be a lie and a scam. Anyway, just don’t do anything stupid like giving them ANY of your personal information. Later! :)

  112. i received a similar mail telling me i have won 420,000 us dollars and that i shud come over to S/Africa for the claim after the signing of CLAIM OF AFFIDAVIT and when i said i cant they gave me a procedure on how to send 550 us dollars to assist me in processing the forms so that i can claim my cash within a period of 2 weeks.infact initially,i was so happy when i learnt it was organise by microsoft and it was plans towards successful hosting of S/Africa 2010.well thanks a lot for your advice.

  113. I have received this E:Mail. I want 2 know what is this all about? Is there anyone who can help me out?

  114. i too received an e-mail from microsoft award claiming that i have won 12500000 great britain pounds on dec 05 2007 .they were telling me to give them my bank details but i havent done so because i dont know of such kind of promotion.
    did microsoft conducted such a promotion?please help.they say the draw was done on 27th November.
    Are you aware of such draw.
    answer me please

  115. 5-DEC-2007
    I also received this spam e-mail,the price money was 1.8 million GBP. Microsoft give me address like Microsoft Promotion,Thames Valley Park, Reading RG6WG, United Kingdom. http://www.msn.com. It is fake address. I checked with British Embassy. They told me they receive such e-mail spam everyday. After that lottery claim officer told me further transaction of my money will be done by Citibank of South Africa. The People faxed me all details including Price Claim Certificate with duplicate Citibank form,then I checked duplicate form with the original Citibank form where I found that the logo of Citibank was different. Then these people like BARRISTER BOSCH SCHOEMAN (South African lawyer), PHILIP MORGAN (fake Citibank officer South Africa), ANDREW ZIMMERMAN (Lottery claim officer Fake Microsoft) asked me an advance money of US$5500 for their professional service charge through money gram. SO BECAREFULL. WE HAVE TO SOLVED THESE FRAUDLENTS BY KILLING THEM.

  116. I received an email too… i filled the form, and they send me my certificate and a lot of things.. actually, they didn’t aske me money or much information… i gave them a fake information, and know, they said that they have trouble to send my price o_O It is real? I really want to know how it works… My agent was a British agent named Paul Morgan, and i actually talk to him… I don’t wanna send my bakn information, but i repeat… they didn’t ask me for money or passwords, not even my credit cards details… just a bank account to send the money and the swift code (in some banks there’s a code for international amounts transfers) but nothing else… I really apreciate some help… I’m kind of believeing that o_O

  117. I thought that it was funny to get something from Micro Soft (right then I knew it was a scam) but to see that the response email was to a yahoo account…hmmm…. Anyway, I’m pasting my email here for all to see as well. I also like how I’m a US citizen but received something for the U.K.

    Looking at the earlier posts…I cannot belive this is still going on. Please do not get caught up in this hoax!!!

  118. I also received an email but the guy stated in the email exists on the bank’s website, and the return email is actually form the bank, not yahoo. please let me know if it may be true in this case?

  119. Also the email he sends back to me are not automated emails that are huge and list a variety of things, they are actually short and to the point. When I told him that I would not pay the insurance money, he said he would pay half and i would only have to pay the other half. i old him I can’t do that and I am waiting to see what he says. If he says he will pay until I get the check should I say ok?

  120. I just now got this email, and wow, did I want to puke! I like the rest of the people who get these get angry. What can a person do? I hope and pray that some people do not get so caught up in this that they believe the bull that is in the letter and actually send in any information. I know they aren’t asking for money right now, but what happens if you answer them? I wager that they will ask for some kind of “fee” for processing the transaction. My skin just crawles when I see what some will do to make money.

  121. Hey you guys. I just wanted to let you know that people do actually work on this stuff. I believe that people who work in “Hi-Tech Crimes” work on these cases but the difficulty is when it is based abroad (i.e. south africa, etc). I forget what I heard was the reason but please do not believe any of the crap that they say! Honestly, if you read any of the previous responses you kinda get whats coming to you if you dont heed anyone’s warning.

  129. move over Ihave won so many of these aaah lotterys that I am now a BILLIONAIRE in more countries than I can remember and still win at least 3 aday sooooo if its money you need then save your self the hassel of contacting them just email me your info and tell me how much you need what 30 70 100 mill come on dont be shy beeelive me I got it HA HA HEE HEE LOL

  130. Its kinda funny I tried to Email the guy back and see how many people actually fall for his crap and how much they make for sitting on their asses scamming people for a living. He hasnt emailed me back but if he does ill let ya guys know.

  131. hi everyone!
    i got a similar letter from Great Britain. Shame on em, i say. you know, what i dont understand is why someone doesnt just follow u/ on all these addresses and throw the bums in jail or an English version of a jail. Then again, these folks are rather like a bad flu virus that mutates and changes to avoid detection. Again, its not worth the money to chase them down. unfortunately, all they have to get is one unlucky believer and theyre rolling in it. Boooooo!

    ive deleted these goofy things all the while develo/ing a bad need to tell at least one of these folks off. Finally, i did. Something to the order, [uh, you really ex/ect me to believe this/ Get real!]

    That was nice.

    you know, maybe we ought to do the same thing. overflow their email boxes with all these you, too, have won this $1,000,000. Etc.,etc., etc.

    • Hi, Everyone. Im just letting everyone out there know that I have just received another email, something simular to the above only the amount is saying its in £sterling. I think that these people are sick and there are people out there that fall for these kind of email more so if they go to the inbox rather that into the junk mail. Over the past 3 weeks I myself have had almost 100 emails like this one but only they say that I have either won a lottery amount or I have been left an inheritance. I also have had emails by someone pretending to be from the FBI in America, and this one is a worrying one if you get it. Although the people are trying to get money out you they are almosed trying to scare you into contacting them. My advice to everyone out there is either ignore these and if you feel threatened in any way take it to the police. I know that everyone gets this kind of email at some point in there lifes and if you have children be careful as they have already managed to get my daughters email address and she is just 16 years old.

      So if you receive an email that looks to good to be true then its got more chance of being a scam. And IGNORE it. Mark it as Rubbish/Trash. And keep reporting them if it gets to much.

      Everyone be on your gaurd. These are nasty individuals that make money from taking from others.

  132. Hello everyone…
    I just received one of those e-mails saying I won 500.000 pounds. The subject was:” THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING TO OUR FINANCIAL SUCCESS) YOUR EMAIL I.D HAVE WON (£500,000)”. I knew that had to be some spam…
    I was going to delete it straight away, but I decided to read it first as I was feeling curious. You don’t win 500.000 pounds everyday, so I had to confirm if that was true!
    I noticed the e-mail was sent today (Sunday) at 3:25 am (2:25 am in the U.K.) mmm, I thought: This people work really hard doing overtime on weekends and everything. It has to suck having to work so much to earn some money while notificating others they won such big amount by doing nothing! Just owning a free e-mail address!!
    Then I see the head letter… wow! A London address with post code and all:
    Microsoft Award Team
    20 Craven Park, Harlesden
    London NW10,United Kingdom
    Batch numbers and other sort of things…
    I must confess I started dreaming a bit… I never believe any of these mails but I was hoping for once I would be wrong.
    I keep on reading and it says that Yahoo and Microsoft… blah, blah… (Since when are these two together? Aren’t they competitors?)
    I have to contact my Mr.Terry Martins
    (VERIFICATION DEPARTMENT MANAGER)
    Email: msnverificationmanager5@hotmail.com
    And there’s some numbers too:
    Tel: +44-703-195-4571
    +44-703-195-4618
    Fax: +44 870 471 6651
    I know London numbers, and they always start by +44 207 and +44 208. This numbers must be mobile phones, or some dodgy numbers where they charge you a lot per minute. I start getting more suspicious.
    I decide to do some research, and then I find all the comments here… I cannot believe I was tempted to replay, but the fact they didn’t ask for money or any bank details or credit card number, made think this wasn’t a fraud.
    I’m actually flying to London in 3 days… (I travel there very often) and I’m tempted to reply to them and tell them I’ll collect my check personally at 20 Craven Park, Harlesden and see whether they agree, hahaha. I don’t even need to open an bank account in London as I already have got one…
    Now I’m laughing at myself for even hesitating this could be real, but I feel upset for all they people that got tricked by this heartless scum.
    I’m going to forward this to my friends to avoid that can happen to any of them.
    Regards to everyone <3

    • You MUST let your bank know about this and ask for a new account number. In the mean time you may want to take all your money out your bank account untill your new account is open. Please keep a eye on your bank account in the meantime.

  133. Hey folks,
    I’ve recd the same bullshit mail day before, i was very happy to see the word MICROSOFT and also replied with the required details…thank god i did’nt disclosed my bank info to them……if anyone give me a hardcore proof, we can sue those bastards…..

    • Today i have also received that i have worn 5 lacs Pounds to may email addres. Let me know what kind of steps taken by you to detect this fruad.

      Regards

      Jayant Shirwadkar

    Then, they called me, and a lady told me I have to choose one of the methods to claim the prize, so I told her what I thought about that, and she just asked me if I wanted the prize or not, I told her not.

    A few hours later I received another phone call, this time was a guy, he started asking for information and explaining things I didn’t get because he had a really bad English, I asked him to send all the information to my e-mail, but they haven’t yet….

    This people have no boundaries, they are calling and they don’t even identify themselves at the phone…..just don’t trust these people….

  142. I also received an e mail with the same contents. I thought to give it a try and they have even replied to my queries. It later occured to me that i should check whether its genuine.

    However i am aware that such mails are fraud and i have never given any crucial information such as bank account or passwords. I think at some point of time they are going to ask for money. Latest on this is they say that they have parceled my check ;)

    Where can i get help in case this joke turns out to be a crisis?

  143. i received this stupid email with the same contents others are ref. to; but my point is this this thieves should have form an email under microsoft. Any way keep on replying them to go and find cleaner job somewhereand stop being stupid. :bulb:

  144. I had one also. Big giveaway was stating in their address that Altrincham, Cheshire was in London! And also the option to ‘come down to United Kingdom’ to collect the money!

    They’re obviously fakes but the phrasing and literacy mistakes are the best way to spot them.

  145. Peace To All
    I got The Same message
    yesterday
    and i forwarded my real personal information
    phone number, mobile number but i didnt give any credit number or scanned identity

    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, these 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 canceling 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.

  154. :bulb: Wake up everyone. How can so many people have received the same email? How much money are their giving away?

    I have also received 2 in the last few weeks. Microsoft have already stated it is fake, take their word for that.

    What they are promising is what they are hoping to get by fooling so many people into given away their identity and money in hope to receive what we all dream of, A large sum of money.

    It looks like they are succeeding since these emails have been going on for over 1 year!

    If you give your private information and bank details you will lose your identity and they will use it to creat false passports etc BEWARE!!!!! Your identity is worth more than the money they are falsely promising.

    Do not proceed!!!!!!!!!!!!

    pure crap, look at the email add of this person(sergeyalexandra_7@live.com) if it is really from microsoft, the email address will have something to do with the company. This is a personal email address…

  157. Lol! I messed with the people who sent me one of these from “FIFA South Africa 2010 World Cup Lottory Promotion ” and pretended to be baited in (while gathering useful info) I got them to send a couple more emails (filled with grammatical errors I might add) I got them to tell me that I would be getting a lawyer to handle my “winning processing fees” Hah! As if! They even tried being all ornery and frustrated by saying “If you don’t claim this the unclaimed prize will go to the motherless.”

    Here’s the 2nd message from marrybrooksmicrosoft@gamil.com:
    ————————————————————–
    Dear Winniner,

    We shall be pleased if you don not want to cliam your fund with us and then return it back to the office as uncliamed.This award is based on your usage of the AOL data base as your email subcribers and that was how the draw was made and your email happens to be a winner.

    Any uncliamed fund goes to the motherless so if it your wish, we can do that on your behalf. So for the sake of your cliam, if you want it with you, then contact your cliam agent with this information and inform this office also.

    One red flag is that “Dr. Rose Allen” uses an email that has the name “MarryBrooks” in it… Now why would a professional use an email that doesn’t have anything to do with who they are?

    This is the 3rd email from that woman:
    ————————————————————–
    DEAR SIR,

    YOU ARE ALLOWED TO EITHER CLIAM THIS FUND OR WE SHALL TAKE IT BACK AS UNCLIAMED AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO CHARITY.

    BASED ON YOUR QUESTION, YOU WILL ONLY BE REQUIRED TO PAY FOR YOUR WINNING PROCESSING FEES AS A LAWYER SHALL BE GIVEN YOUR PAYMENT FILE TO PROCESS AND HE HAS TO NOTARIZE IT WITH THE COURT HERE IN SOUTH AFRICA AND ONLY ON THOSE ISSUE YOU SHALL BE ASKED FOR THE PROCESSING FEES BEFORE THE FINAL TRANSFER IS MADE TO YOUR NOMINATED BANK ACCOUNT.

    HAVE IT IN MIND THAT ALL DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE WINNING FUND SHALL BE FORWARDED TO YOU FOR CLIAM AND PROVE OF LEGALITY.

    GET ACROSS TO US YOUR FULL INFORMATION TO PROCEED ON THIS ISSUE.

    SINCERELY,

    DR. ALLEN

    First of all I’m not even a MAN!!! And she wrote it in all caps like she was yelling at me or something!

    Here’s the first from the man:
    ————————————————————

The are the Major sponsors of this award with Microsoft.

    This should be clear to you. And also I shall be pleased to let you know that there should be a processing Fees to be paid by you in regards to this matter and you should know nothing Good comes easy. On the legality of this matter, we shall be pleased to let you know that all this matter is legaly covered. On the Tax issues, as soon as the Final approvals is being secured to make the transfer of funds to you, the Tax issue will be taken care off and note that all winning fund are being insured and no one can have access to fund till it gets to you.

    I am looking forward to hear from you and this is just the honest aspect of this transaction. Till we hear from you.

    what I have to do with this E-mail

  160. Hi got the lottery email – woow, thought I would provide a reply:
    Hi

    Woow so excited, this will put an end to all my money worries.

    However I am divorced and have two ex-wives with 8 children between them fathered by me. As I’m sure you can understand they are always after more money from me for the children, sometimes I wish my lust was not so great (must get some professional help). Consequently giving my name out can put me in real trouble with my ex-wife(s), the first kept hurting me a lot as she was a power lifter and really strong. I really don’t want to end up in hospital again. The second was into witchcraft and you don’t want to know what she kept doing to me but needless to saw that I still bear the scars.

    I see you have notified me from London, thats great as I work in London and thought it would be great to met you in person and pick up my cheque as I’d love to make sure you get a great lunch from me in a top London venue and perhaps with me winning so much we could have a night out on the town.

    Please email me back soonest and we can arrange a meeting

    regards Peter

  161. :P :P We can have these Guys ? How ?

    wat stuck me was that d sender is from Wide Open West, which is a U.S. based cable service and then i am supposed to reply to somebody in U.K., supposedly frm d microsoft. Now, in this period of recession, where microsoft has already chucked out several of its employees, where do they get d money to spend on lotteries..

    guess these scammers or wahteever they r called, needs to be updated.

  183. Firstly I must say that this is most definately a scam first why a yahoo address? secondly there is no logo attached to the e-mail thirdly call the number if one is listed and if some one answers HELLO then you know it’s a total fake fifthly there is no website to go to verify. sixth microsoft even says in it websites that these e-mails are scams.

  191. I have come to know through your wibsite that many people have received the mails rearding winning of prizes, but none of the person have confirmed if they have received any prize. Similarly I have also receive the email of winning prize for which the sender have demanded the clearace amount. I’m in delima whether it is two mail or or a scam shall I deposite the money or
    not.
    Reply urgent

    • Mahi,

      For goodness sake do not send your details or any monies. This is clearly a scam. If you had won a prize you would not be expected to pay any money.

      Dump this SCAM and take care in the future.

  192. This is another winning notice I received now.
    I don’t know how to withtstand with those kind of messages. There should be a way to sue those people
    for what they are doing with our information.

    The Microsoft Internet E-mail lottery Awards is sponsored by our CEO/Chairman, Bill Gates and a consortium of software promotion companies. The Intel Group, Toshiba, Dell Computers and other International Companies. The Microsoft internet E-mail draw is held periodically and is organized to encourage the use of the Internet and promote computer literacy worldwide. The Microsoft Window 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, these 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
    Canceling 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.

    Once again on behalf of all our staff,
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  201. I also received this email as well. The only thing is the reply email address is from someone in HK. I am originally from HK, and I have to admit, I was initially thought I win something.

    But then later on, my instinct told me this is too good to be true. Good thing I looked online and found this website.

    I received many emails about telling me I win this and that much money. Everytime, I just laughed at it, and delete it right the way. But this time, since the replying email is from some place I am familar, I almost believe it.

    Then I think not long ago, I have inquire to a hotel in HK asking them the price during Christmas. Could this information being released to some “third” party and they got my email address.

  225. Hi all,

    Just like you I also received such an email, where I have been told to be the winner of 1.000.000 Britain Pounds. I sent them an email before with my full name, adress and age. That's all the personal information they received from me.
    Do you think they can base a false identity based on that information?

    I just wanted to check around a little before I would call the courier, now I am glad I did. I had no idea this email was such a big scamming scandal.

    Thanks..

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    International Lottery Board, and U.S. Federal law enforcement authorities are intercepting bank transfer of millions of foreign lottery Winners sent or delivered by the Payment Agent into the U.S. And Other Parts of the World, lured by prospects of instant wealth of some past suspected Agent,We notice responding to the solicitations of winners payment directed through-to the tune of $160 million in year 2009, according to the U.S. Inspection Service.

    The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says most promotions for foreign lotteries (of ANY kind) are likely to be claim by agent or someone that has the Winning Numbers,that is why all Winner are advice to keep “his or her” Winning Confidential. Many Agent Delivery operators don’t even get back to Return Payment since no report of the promised lottery winners lost. Others means are through assigned company officials keep the “winnings” for themselves:

    • If you win a foreign lottery-through the mail and you did not contact the directed office for one month after notification the International lottery federal law, don’t expect any help from the government when your insurance certificate is not with you.

    • There are no secret systems for winning foreign lotteries not to notify the company when your payment get to your destination of claim. Your chances of winner to loose your funds are slim when there is no report or update. 


    The bottom line, according to the Lottery Laws:To report any lost after issue of insurance certificate, contact your state Attorney General.

    Plz Reply weather its geninue mail

  247. Hi All

    Received one myself, they only offered me a £950.000. Compared to what some people here were offered I could almost be dis-appointed lol.

    However it’s nothing but a scam. You don’t win prizes from a competition you never entered in the first place.

    The majority of these have one of two purposes.
    1 To extract money from you by claiming a delivery fee,

    2 To retrieve private information, eg bank details etc.

    The best thing to do with them is consign them to the junk box and delete them permanently.

    All the best

  271. Never ever believe such emails, always remember “No lunch is available for free”

    Micrsoft should proactively take steps to avoid usage of their names since these cheaters daringly using Repsentative and Diplomat words in their emails.

    We are smart enough to identify that why a representative from Micorsoft would use yahoo, or hotmail id’s to inform us.

    There is no such schemes/lotteries exist so do not respond to them.
