FREE LOTTERIES - NOTE: There is NO such thing as a "free" lottery. All lotteries must charge in order to have money to give away. And NO major corporation, least of all, Microsoft, is going to give away money to lotteries, email address holders or as a "promotion" . They exist to make money, not give it away. If you see the word "free" in the name, you can be certain that it is a scam.
