Please gothrough the following letter, i'm getting it frequently from my friends and i wanna know is it true?

Bill Gates sharing his fortune. If you ignore this, You will repent
later.

Microsoft and AOL are now th e 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 weeks
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 weeks, Microsoft will contact
you for your address and then send you a check.

Everything that is being released by Microsoft is a prank only.

People who make up these e-mails should be caught and be forced to do some community service. Thats time better spent than making up these stupid emails.

I can guarantee that something's not right: In January, I followed these instructions to the letter, and -- by my estimates -- should have received roughly $82,100 from Microsoft. But when my check arrived, it was only $27,881. (This was after withholding, since MS required a tax ID before sending the check.)
