Hi I too got this kind of mail and I am toltally confused . If you get any further communication on this please let me know. Earlier I have received this kind of mail from Yahoo also which I could makeout as Fraud as I checked the same in Google and it gave me clear cut info that Yahoo Lottery winning mail is Fraud and not to provide any details to them. But from Microsoft, I checked in Google again and it did not give any info neither Positive nor Negative

Here is the mail that I have received"

hey guys these r fake mails, check out any viruses r attached in the mails, first they will send mail like this then they will ask you money to transfer that price...... i was escaped because my friend told me these r fakes... the bleedy [censored]er dont have work they r trying to cheat people, instead of doing like this they can sell their mother for money
Even i have got a mail like this and they are asking me to send money to some courier company. What should i do? Please let me know.
Dear Everyone,

Please don't belive on this kind of mail. 1st of all, think like that. you have got a mail from microsoft winning notification but that mail will came from another mail server instate of microsoft. that mail is not came from microsoft.com & even microsoft is not free for this kind of things. As well as i am watching this kind of mail from last 9 years but nobody gets anything. Everybody's lost his/her valubable time & money behind this kind of rubbish thing.

This kind of mail will ask you for secure detail like date of brith, your mother middle name, your place of birth, your mailing address, your contact number which your using in bank or credit card, your credit card information ....blalblabla... Please don't provide them anything..... Even they will ask to send money for charity, for curior company, for service charges or any other kind of excuses which require money.

So, Please I personally sugget.. If you found mail from any bigger company name like microsoft, yahoo, google or any other lottery company want to send winning money to you on that time please kept in mind they all want to do scam.

Thanks & Best of luck
Dhanesh Kansari

I am the most positive thinking person with people giving a big rope for their deeds, but in the last I have won. But here I see that the complaints are only seen but not the results of the complaints, if the results too are shown below the complaints than that would be of a great help. So please do the needful.
Since I share my personel experience I get n number of mails from various kinds of companies and also from the pepole in the world. But in all the places I have asked them the required proofs and till date non of them has given the same. Even I got the message of arrival of a diplomat and he atlast arrived in India at Mumbai and gave me many calls but I requested him only one thing i.e., u get ur money u have spend only when I see my value in my hands let it be in form cash/cheque. Since than there is no answer/reply from.

This is the way u too can reply to one help others with out replying or he raising the question which has repetance.
sir i have recived some mai but iam counfuge this time plese give me chacker seystem of fake lottery mail
Hi i also got such a mail. I replyed to them then they told you have to pay 25,000 bugs then only the cheque will be c leared. so I left it I did not take any action. Is it realy fake
yeap, i used to get these kind of mails , these are real fake mails as it is fishing on net for the details and from the next day you would start getting spam mails . in hundreds make sure that you dont give any information they are asking .
Is there any possibility of checking the genuiness of this message.Everybody is complaining but without any response from any quarter.one my friend lost some money on giving the information asked by the socalled organisers.The UK government is the appropriate authority to take some action.

Thanking U
Urs faithfully,
ChanmdramouliswerGhatty
its upon ur mind .lets see how will u think 'with brain are what'...dont loose ur brain until or unless that 'u fit for nothing'
hello all,

please do help me..as it was mention in below even I got mail from same…but to find whether this mail is true or fraud I called the number which provided in the mail..
With same name a personal picked up the call and replied, yes your are the winner and spoke very truthfully. so without any knowledge I have provided my personal details to them. Now when I have seen user review in this website, I believe that is fraud …

BUT I HAVE PROVIDED THEM MY PERSONAL DETAILS. WILL IT LEADS TO ANY PROBLEMS IN FUTURE.. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME.

REPLY !!!
Hello Everyone,

Please DO NOT believe those emails. All lottery winner emails like this are FAKE. This is a very simple trick used by cunning people to fool unsuspecting individuals. First of all they will ask you to contact them and then when you contact them, they will give you more details about your prize. Finally they will say your money is ready to be transferred but you need to pay the courier company fees which would be more than Rs. 25000 or even Rs. 50000. Then after you pay them the fees to get your money, they NEVER contact you.

One of my friends paid Rs. 1, 00, 000 to get his prize money but he NEVER got anything. He lost all his money. Please learn from his mistake and do not believe any such emails. There was also a warning in TIMES OF INDIA by Delhi Police to ignore such emails as all the lottery winning emails are FAKE and if you pay them money in the name of any fees or transaction costs, no one can help you get your money back- not even the police or law. If you pay them any money, you will loose all your money forever!

Please consider the following before believing such emails:

1. Did you take part in any lottery program? YES or NO. If your answer is NO, then think about it- Why did you get a winner email if you never participated in any lottery program?????

2. Check the spellings in the emails. If most spellings are wrong and company name is written in CAPITALS like MICROSOFT, YAHOO, GOOGLE- most of the times such emails are fake.

3. Check the email address from which the email was sent to you. If the email is not from microsoft.com or google.com, then it is FAKE.

Also, PLEASE NEVER REPLY TO ANY LOTTERY EMAIL. IF YOU REPLY TO THEM, THEY WILL KNOW YOU ARE A REGULAR EMAIL USER AND THEY WILL SEND YOU 100 OR 1000 EMAILS PER DAY!!

I hope my post clears all doubts. Thanks
same Email have to me
is it true or not ?
The most disturbing thing is that i nearly fall for this, because i was told that i have won 500000.00GBP and i had to email my address at the eaglecourierdeliververy.com, so i did and was told to deposit 250.00GBP in their account, but i became suspicious and started asking question but did have answer.So why microsoft cant help because this people are using their brand and also this couriers had to be checked.

Your responds guys we need help.
Approximately one week ago I received this correspondence - documentation was completed and forwarded, but in my heart of hearts, having not won anything before doubt raised in my mind to win such a large amount of money, but then looking my overheads that I can sort out and shift.
During the weekend I contemplated their emails and thought that I would investigate this further - so I veered to the offices in Holborn to their payment division - not quite an office but a residential building - then my heart sank!!! Missed opportunities.
If they wish to persue with these money making schemes, I myself would castrate each and every one of them.

A most disappointed individual.
i also received such email.u know i have received more than 30 such emails today .i replied for one to check if this is true.i have provided my info i am afraid if thid will lead to any problems.God save me from any obstacle.

i thank you for all those who have allerted me of such fake emails .thank you friends.
