I received an email hoax. Sometimes people just cannot differentiate between reality and the internet. The content is a hoax but some people still believe there’s a free lunch. I just pity the telephone numbers owner. He/she should receive a lot of “prank” calls…
The content is something like this below

Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is sharing his fortune. If you ignore this you will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.
When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period.
For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $241.00. Within two week! s, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a cheque.

I thought this was a scam myself, but two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on, Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, I received a cheque for US$24,800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can afford this Bill Gates is the man.
It’s all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as many people as possible.
You are bound to get at least US$10,000.00.
We’re not going to help them out with their e-mail beta test without getting a little something for our time. My brother’s girlfriend got in on this a few months ago. When I went to visit him for the Baylor/UT game.
She showed me her check. It was for the sum of $4,324.44 and was stamped “Paid In Full”.
Like I said before, I know the law, and this is for real

I thought this was a scam myself, but a friend of my good friend’s Aunt Patricia, who works at Intel, actually got a check of $4,54323 by forwarding this e-mail.
Try it; what have you got to lose????
My beloved friends, in this world there is no Free Lunch! Get back to work. Stop forwarding 😛
