Gmail/Microsoft Windows lottery discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friend\'s relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, this friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. Microsoft Lottery reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the cancelling 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 amount.

This office will not be responsible for any outstanding fees. Services rendered by the Global Courier Service are to be paid by you and not the lottery board, for the fact that the lottery organizers didn\'t make any provision for any upcoming expenses, regarding delivery of parcel or any such. And also if you are not going to make the delivery charges, you don\'t have to contact the Global Courier Company, and there is no deduction from your winning amount, and no payment at the time of delivery, all outstanding fees must be made to them before your parcel can be released and deliver to your nominated home address.

Have it in mind that your won cannot be deducted, this is because the total amount has been insured to the real value. This is to protect winners and to avoid misappropriation of funds.

It is expected that you add your IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS {PARCEL/NUM/3039} as the subject of any correspondence with the courier company to ensure they respond in a timely manner.

I will require a concise update on proceedings with the firm as soon as you are in contact with them. If you need any assistance whatsoever, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Do have a nice day.

Best Regards,
Mr. Garry Derrick
