Recently, I received an email from Msn & Microsoft Window Lottery saying that I have won and requesting me to contact the bank for the transfer of the winning funds. Has anyone of you also received such mail from them? Should I believe and reply to such mails?

TOTAL SCAM!!!!! Right up there with the Nigerian bankers that have 25 million for you that belonged to a relative you never knew you had. They jsut want your personal and bank info so they can screw up your life.

Right, I received this too. They did ask for personal but not bank info. Thanks for your response.

I also received an email about lottery but it is not from msn and microsoft. it came from another company but it also states that I alo won in the lottery and they sent me an application form for me to fill-up and they told me to fax the application form to the fax number they gave me so that they can send my money. what i did is i filled up the form and fax it to them. but it is already more than a year and still i do not recieved any response to them. Since then, i never trust those kind of mails. i do not know wat happened to the form i sent. it is up to you if you will believe on that mail or not. i just told you my experience with that.
