Microsoft is warning of a hoax email which claims that the recipient has won an Xbox games console.

The email from US based company says: 'Congratulations on winning, from Microsoft and the team!' The lucky 'winners' are then directed to the company's website.

Microsoft insists that it has nothing to do with the site. The company told "The email your reader received is a hoax, and is not affiliated with Microsoft. Microsoft is aware of the issue and is currently looking into this."
