Dear Sir
About three weeks ago I received and 'E' mail which said that I had won wonderful gifts from Microsoft on Line Promotion. They send to parcel the APX Courier services which then send me an 'E'mail and said that I had to pay the delivery fees which is $507. I want to know if this messages was a scams / fraud story or is this real. You have more knowledge than I have. I would like feedback as soon as possible.
If it is true I will pay but I am not paying fir scams. The courier services do not have bank accounts.

I have also been approached by APX courier- this time intimating that they are going to send a draft of about 900, 000 pounds to me- the modus opperandi being just the same. They have said that the only way to receive the prize money is by paying them their charges and so called income tax in advance.Should I pay up or will someone take up the matter with UK police. I can send further details if you reply to me
