I want to thank you Jim for informing me that you also recieved the same winning lottery. They want money sent to them I told them no way they can deliver it to my door and go to the bank with me to see if it is authentic then and only then will I pay them anything

And another thing they won't tell me how much it is in U.S. $'s.

It would be great if it was real but I really doubt that it is. Keep me posted.

I have also recieved an e-mail stating that I won $900,000.00 US. I told them I would not send any money to the courier service they are using until I could confirm this program with microsoft. They just gave me a phone number and have sent pictures of certificates of authenticity. My biggest problem in the beginning was they do not know how to spell the word organization (they spelled it a couple of times with an s). Just does not seem kosher to me. I am going to call the contact number and see what the guy says. I have saved all e-mails from them and they are using yahoo. thought I would contact them as well as the better business agency

good catch on the spelling. But I would recomend not to send any photos or ID's to these places they may be trying to steal your identity

I received an email such as the one you describe, and found a nasty little virus on my omputer not long after. I don't know if it has anything to do with the email I received, but you may want to see if you can get any window updates.

Hi, I received the same Lottery Winnings notification and I went to the UK Lottery commission web-page and found out that there are scammers doing the lottery thing and also they said on the website that you cannot win the lottery by random e-mail selections.................so saying that just make sure that it is leggit before you send any money. They told me that i could come and pick it up from the UK or I can have it sent to me via courier and the courier they wanted me to use was greyhound express, so im just going to call greyhound express courier and make sure that they have something for me and then if so I am gonna get an attorney if it is a hoax, because I have saved every e-mail and i wrote addresses, names, and phone numbers. so saying that just be careful.

darryl:

Last week I got a check in the mail for $2950.00. I was asked to put this in my bank account and send them a check for that same amount of money.

Whatn I did was I signed the check ( as they wrote it out which is not how my bank knows my signiture) and endorsed right back to the name on the letter. I told them that if they were legitamite this would do for there payment they asked from me. And also told them my bank knows how I sign my checks and I did not put the little insigma I use on this. So that they can't forge my name.

I also called the number on the letter and all I got was an answering machine.

Now I'm just waiting to here from them again. As for all e-mails they go directly to junk now.

The check supposedly came from a Bank in Louisville Kentucky

Middleton Reutlinger

2500 Brown & Williamson Tower

Louisville Kentucky, 40202

866-883-6276

Stockyards Bank and Trust Company

I called the number on monday and wouldn't you know all I got was an answering machine. So right there you know something is wrong. All they asked was if I wanted to leave a message no name directory or anything. Dah! Do they really think the American public is that stupid.

take care and be careful

I also got email like that, they say I have won a lottery of 1 million pounds, what ***...the biggest mistake that they did was emailing me on Yahoo to notify me that my YAHOO id has won a promtion from Micorsoft. Had they emailed me on MSN or HOTMAIl, it would have looked more convincing. I tried calling on the numbers given in the email, but they dont exist. And the funny part is that the are very prompt in replying to your email but they always do from a yahoo or a hotmail. If they are from a company, then wheres their official email id

I dont know how many more people are beign duped like that.

I am writing a stinker email to them , just to let them know how furious I am.

It is a scam and these are on the rise. The amazing thing I find is that these people free use the Microsoft logo and there is nothing in the press about Microsoft even attempting to catch these people in service or through footprints on servers or via filtering. When you ask them, if you can find how to address them (they are quite inaccessible and seemingly prefer to remain so), the Microsoft people are always so willing to help you. Most frequently, however, it is by directing you to a useless general website that virtually eliminates the opportunity to speak with someone who could conceivably address the issue. I believe Microsoft employees are too dedicated to fixing the problems within their platforms because they don't spend enough time to get it right the first time, so they keep having to fix it. Then, they come up with some beta program and expect you to iron out all their bugs, without even paying you. They are too busy fixing their own problems to lift their eyes from the task and see a whole world of people out there trying to fix their computer when they don't perform because of Microsoft programs that they have completely lost sight that people no longer need buy their programs when they can use web based applications from any computer and are no longer a prison or Microsoft and MSN. They're losing the battle to Google in WEB2, where everything is already available on line for free and the beauty of that is that it really works well, without all the expense, the hype and the bugs. So, it should come as not surprise that there is a scam that is centered around Microsoft and they are incapable of doing anything about it.

That's my 2 cents worth, or if you prefer, my tuppence worth.
