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

The email from US based company Prize-Giveaway.com says: 'Congratulations on winning, from Microsoft and the Prize-Giveaway.com 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 vnunet.com: "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."
