Always remember that you can't just win any promotional award without your prior knowledge of participating. So, don't make the mistake of thinking that this Microsoft Corporation Award 2012 is not another promotional online scam. Just be careful so that you don't get scammed.
It might also interest you know that I was asked to contact some in South Africa to claim my Microsoft Corporation Award 2012, which just proves that this is a pure scam because I live and reside in Nigeria. So please don't fall for this cheap one.
