The Yahoo/Msn & Microsoft Windows lottery has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers.
As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Microsoft lottery has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.


Mr. Halam Scott.

How I wish I really got this. Will blogging bring me this fortune ? Only God Knows. Just be happy on what you are doing.

  • Sir,
    I have been looted by a section of people from london in the name of handing over of MSW Mega,Microsoft,UK National,Irish lottery and able to ralized Rs.five lakes approx INR from me during last September,2007.
    During last one year I am trying and trying to return my all paid charges but not succeeded in any way.
    Now, I am severe distress,sinking conditon as my paid charges which I take loan in now increased near about ten lakes and money lender is repeatedly pressing our family for immediate return.In this stage there is no way to refund the loan money by our family.
    A section of people using the logo of renouned above lottery Board has looted our family.
    In this game I believe there is a responsiblity of such Board to save a simple family who are in deep troubles.
    So, I believe you will help us to bring our real storyl and placed before the Lottery Board for compensation to save our family and for such sanction of compenstion, Lottery Board will not loose any thing but save a ruined family who are really in deep troubles.
    In the name of God help our family and take all possible means and manage to sanction compensation from Lottery Board and confirmed.
    I am waiting for your immediate response.
    Any further information in this respect is required by your honor will be submitted as and when required.
