Dear Friend,

A old saying goes like this..."there are no free lunches available here...". Implying, the only way to win fortune is to put sincerely lots of hardwork, application and perseverence.

If you ever come across such stupidous emails again, just delete them.

Umesh S. Kollimath
Why is Microsoft and the cyber crime not taking any acyion against this crime...Innocents are losing their hard earned money...The culprit should be punished...The way they are cheating people...they too will be cheated the same way by some one and put to streets...

C Kelly.
