    It's a scam, buddy. Neither Microsoft nor AOL hold any sweepstakes like that. Apart from anything else, look at the poor language used. Have nothing to do with it.

    You must believe in fairy tales, because this is most certainly a fairy tale, or what is better known as SPAM! There is no such thing as the Microsoft/AOL, or Microsoft promotion award blah blah blah. There is NO free money.
