@ Zemphi - Thank you for your post. There are so many scammers out there sending out fake lottery winning notifications that it would be impossible for MSN or any other company to do anything about it. Law Enforcers catch up with some of these thieves and they are jailed for their crimes.


I just received EXACT same e-mail from a Mr. Christopher Ward, with exactly the same batch,ref,& winning numbers. Hahaha, so........ do I think this is real....... NOPE, NOT, NADA.

I have also recieved 2 emails from one lady claiming to woek for yahoo, aol, and gmail saying i won an award. Then i recieved the second email from a Mr. Durk Turkel to be the fudiciary agent for yahoo, gmail, and aol amd that i had won due to my email address being picked out of thousands. I even wrote both telling them i thought it was a scam amd they semt pdf docs about my "awatd". Funny his office is also in Stanton City, South Africa 1st floor of the medical mews building. what a coincudence..........of course, this is about the 5th email ive gotten claiming ive won some kind of millions. One even came from the guess they think im dumb. Told both i was ginna investigate them.......

@Brittanie welcome to AFI. The reason the numbers are the same is because this is a scam. There are no winnings.

The same message (and numbers) are sent out to possibly thousands of people hoping some will answer and the scammer can then steal money from them. Please do not fall for these scams. Thank you.
