Microsoft Word International Promotions Program

No, this isn't a real lottery and no, it has nothing to do with Microsoft.

It's just a group of criminals who have taken the name and are using it to try and steal your money.

They will tell you that you must send them money to have your prize released. Any money you send them will just be kept by the criminals and no prize will ever be sent to you.

This is a fake, a scam, a fraud, so ignore it.

Yahoo Beta

No, this isn't a real lottery, there are no prizes, and it is most certainly nothing to do with Yahoo.

This is a scam, an attempt to take money from you, not to give it to you.

You'll be asked to send them money to release your prize. Any money that you send will be kept by the criminals and no prize will ever be sent to you.

This is a fraud, a fake, ignore it.
