Hello Regina. I would suspect that this actually is scam. It may probably be a phishing case. Better be careful and wait until Microsoft confirms that this is legitimate information (if they every confirm), before giving out any of your personal information. I think the contact email address (micro_corporations@msn.com) has been set up in MSN service for free (like hotmail, gmail, etc.) so it may be phony.
On the other hand I may be wrong. I'm just saying you should be cautious. Good luck!

Hi Regina.. I've got the same message.
Have you called to the fone number?
I'm from Chile, so it's more difficult for me to do it.
Let me know,

i'd received it too. What made me suspicous is the email reply links. Is it valid?, they are from microsoft.co.uk and under msn.com . You cant simply get a email under msn.com right?, its either hotmail.com or live.com .How is it a fraud?.

If you work for msft, why didn't they mark you as an employee? I don't know if they ever set up the "if person's email = @microsoft.com, then auto upgrade to employee" feature. Whoever admins GSFN for MSFT has to do it, and then they have to post a text file to the website (to verify), so it may be difficult with your "rules".

You can't actually ALL be this dumb can you? Of course it's not real. You can usually check out any internet rumors on truthorfiction.com if you're deceived by whimsical e-mails such as the one listed here.

Why, microsoft company did not do something to stop this?!!.. This scammers are frauting around with this prestigious company, cheating people using its Name..hey.. microsoft people you all dont feel anything?! ahhh.

Nothing in this world is free.. So Stop Dreaming.. If this is not a scam, winning this sweepstake does not be so difficulf, take example from the one who won euro sweepstake, some says he/she only send 2 euro to buy the tickets and he/she is now a millionaire can go fly to the moon for holiday...... So MICROSOFT people, please do your joblahhh, have pride in this prestigious Branded Company on this planet... do something to stop this scamming...
