The Microsoft Internet E-mail lottery Awards is sponsored by our CEO/Chairman, Bill
Gates and a consortium of software promotion companies. The Intel Group, Toshiba, Dell
Computers and other International Companies. The Microsoft internet E-mail draw is held
periodically and is organized to encourage the use of the Internet and promote computer
literacy worldwide. The Microsoft Window 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.

Once again on behalf of all our staff.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Sincerely,

MICROSOFT DIRECTORATE UNIT
