As I've already stated. I don't think it is fradulent because Microsoft can use their disgretion on whether or not to send a copy to someone as they have made it open to anyone who has a .Net Passport account (read: hotmail or msn email account). I made it completely obvious that I was a student and didn't work for a company.

Ask yourself, how many people on this forum work for the company they are supposedly working for, just to get the free stuff.

I'd put student, your address and send it to them. In other words just be honest.

Well, once I can actually log into .NET passport, I will do that. To be sure, contact us is at the bottom of the main page, correct?

Exactly. Has it ever crossed your minds that if you say you work for like Best Buy, don't you think Microsoft will try to confirm that you work there, or send them something to say you completed training?

ok bummed, Uk user - 1500 points - no final test - only crap games and a basecall cap (or knitted one ...) did I miss something?

Training all complete - no failures

No "All test" on front page

No sign of anything XP related

:(

For some reason, the .NET passport log in doesn't work. At all.

Yes, I know they do that for their retail training. I don't know if they do that for windows mobile training.

It isn't my fault they don't post anywhere on the site excpet for in the FAQ (and who is going to read it anyway) that you need to be working for a company to get the rewards. Even when you register it allows you to put in any new company in the field, complete all of the quizes and order any rewards you have points for. If they want to make this ONLY for those who work for a company that deals with these products then they need to not allow the general public to login. I mean, come on, they do that for everything else Microsoft! (ie. Windows Beta, etc.).

Also, I specifically said on the post that if any mod felt that this was in violation of the rules then to lock and delete the thread. It is up to them not me.

There is no XP Pro for UK users. XP Pro isn't listed in the main post in the UK Rewards list for a reason.

First off, lets hope we are even eligible for this before you ask for more points ;)

I said I worked for Costco... which isn't that much of a lie since I worked there 3 years ago :whistle:

Never mind - zooming in shows it for me (stoopid firefox I guess :p)
