    Anyone else having problems getting a Welcome Pack out of Microsoft ???

    I passed my MCSA 2003 September 29th last year and requested the Welcome
    pack on the 30th, according to MS they have sent me 3 packs since then, none
    of which have arrived, it feels like I have emailed & spoken to everyone
    expect Bill and still no welcome pack, it has now been 21 weeks & counting,
    looks like it's going to be 6 months.

    I have received my MCP & MCDST packs previously, with no problems within the
    8 weeks.

    It certainly doesn't encourage me to spend the money, time & effort studying
    other MS certs.

    The saga continues, after 6 months a welcome pack arrives, but unfortunately
    it is not mine it is for a gentleman in Bolivia and is an MCP pack not
    MCSA.........looks like Microsoft will have to fly me to Bolivia to exchange
    packs with my MCP friend there.......

    Email Help at M$ and let them know the situation, with all the detailed
    information. I included the previous three emails in the last one I sent to
    them. They will send you a certified packet with a trace on it. It still
    took mine about 8 weeks to get to me after they sent the traced packet, but
    I finally got it. HTH!

    Thanks QBob,

    Been there, done that. That's how I got the wrong one that should have gone
    to Bolivia. I couldn't complain about the delivery time 4 days Singapore to
    New Zealand, excellent service DHL, but unfortunately the wrong one was
    sent.

    The latest is, a new (hopefully) correct pack is being dispatched, ETA 10
    days but I still haven't received a tracking number.

    I was advised by MS Help to use the online printout, which I have been for
    the last 6 months, but surely that is not the point.
    I was also asked to confirm my delivery address, this after they had been
    told that I had received an incorrect pack.
    LMAO.............

    an update, I have just finally received my Welcome Pack which is great after
    7mths, but unfortunately in the same parcel I also received a Mr Thomas
    Hamann's welcome pack, so Thomas if you are waiting on a Welcome pack, ask
    for another, as yours is in New Zealand & I'm not paying the freight for
    it's return...

    is this a joke or what ?
