I too had got this mail. Please let me know about this.

I also make a sincere request to Microsoft that have a look in to this matter as i had got the mail from a Microsoft mail id [protected]@microsoft.com
I am really serious about this matter as this is looking like a proper email and why should the company excite us about being a winner. So if this is true why are we not being able to call the number given to us. This is not right at all.

I am waiting for your response.
I agree something has to be done...

I personally have never been scammed on this item below. I personally have never been scammed at all. But hear about this issue all the time.

Sorry for this long email. But I feel strong about this issue below.

But I'm certainly getting fed up with the amount of emails I receive from these scams. I know it is easy to just delete it. But why should I have to even receive one in the first place. The more I read other peoples stories I was infuriated about how many people were scammed.

I was mugged and robbed four times in my life. I was nearly killed a couple of times. Talk about bad luck. The police caught two of the four. Which is nice. I'm pretty upset about criminals.

We as civilians in our country can do something about this particular scam.

It is too bad Microsoft doesn't track these people down. Is there any laws to send these people to prison? The prey on naive people, which is nice at all.

The more people who complain to the ombudsman of Microsoft and of the consumer ombudsman or the ombudsman of you're country or province/state. For example I live in Canada and we have a consumer ombudsman and provincial ombudsman in each province and for all of the country.

Example; Canadians in the Province of British Columbia thousands of people were complaining to Canada's Ombudsman about a telephone company by the name of Telus. The complaints were about their poor service and long waits for customer service when a customer tried to call in for assistance. Telus was forced to act on building better customer care for their clients.

Another example; seniors were targets of a scam in Canada. The company targeted seniors and said they won $100, 000 dollars and you just have to give me you're credit card number, bank account number or send us a money order for X amount of dollars. Many people complained to the ombudsman and the issue has been tackled.

Ombudsman protect the right of the people when it comes to scams and complaints. In this case this has to do with not only insurance companies, banks, people and Microsoft, it has to do with the people. Us! We are consumers on the internet and sometimes things look so legitimately right people fall for scams. We need to stand up for ourselves. I'm lucky that I worked for a bank and witnessed every scam in the book. I'm now working in Film and love to tell stories on screen. We need to stand up for ourselves and make sure this complaint gets out to our leaders in our home countries and to companies who too get effected. Such as you're personal bank, Microsoft and insurance companies who sometimes fit the bill for scams...

So write a short letter to you're ombudsman and too Microsoft's ombudsman. Let's do this together and catch these jerks. And Maybe the law can increase jail time for these criminals. We need to have heavy laws for these criminals.

Let's do this together. Our voice must be heard. Many innocent people are targets and loose money they really don't have. Let's put a stop to these criminals...

Scam...scam...scam

This is indeed a scam...have got this mail too many times in my mail box...i never responded as i know it's a scam but i m really sorry for the poor chaps who do reply and get in the web of scamsters...even if you reply and send your details to the address mentioned in the mail...do not ever i repeat DO NOT EVER give your banking or credit card details or ever deposit any amount of money these guys ask for once you start communicating to them...and this holds good for any mail that asks you to give your banking details or to deposit any amount of money...

I am from China. I got that mail a few days ago. I also feeling very uncertain. I don't know why some people would like to cheat people. I know that's the hoax. But I want know that they how to cheat the people's money if the people don't give them any credit card number or the Bank account. I try to reply the mail. and they want me sign my full name, age, country, occupation, and the contact address. And I try to send them some imformation.And I also ask them question that how much tax should I pay. Then they reply to me, and let me contact the one world express courier company. And need me send the same imformation to that company. But have not answer my question. And I check that company's address is wrong and the e-mail address also wrong. I really want to know What they want. I want to Call the police, but I am a Chinese in China, don't know how to contact the kingdom police. They should go to jail. Don't let them hurt people.Why so many cheater in the world?!
Why can't microsoft try to trace these scamsters or at least the agencies involved in putting order over web abusers create a system to stop these people? Am from the Philippines and it infuriates me why these people are ignored in the way they operate in the web- it seems... I feel sorry for this.
I agree that there is some authorised system to track these people down. Come on, Microsoft, these people are tarnishing you good name!
What is this?

Hi: First, sorry, but my english but is defective, I speak Spanish.
This is a defrauds. If this was real, the extension e-mail would be @microsoft.com and not @advir.com. Now, if you answer to this firstly letter you will receive a second that they will say that your money is ready to be delivered but first you must contact to you with Peter Fox of AW-Express. AW Express is a real company, but again they commit the same mistake, the e-mail of contact is [protected]@admin.in.th. The extension of e-mail should be @awexpress.com or slightly similar. Besides, in this second e-mail they explain that the costs of sending(parcel) are paid by the winner, in sum, you. The idea is that when you come to the instance of confirming your parcel, they will charge the costs by means of some electronic transference ... but you will never receive anything. I hope that this serves you as response.

Best regards,
i have also had email today re dear winner, i also would like to know is this fake, i was asked to contact
